At King’s-Edgehill School, we’re committed to the true meaning of education – to lead forth.
Except we’re not doing the leading – you are. Since 1788, our mission has been to create a stimulating, transformative culture that inspires students from all over the world to reach out and claim their true potential. Ours is a culture based on a balanced yet stimulating environment, mutual respect and supportive education.
Our balanced approach to student development means that all aspects of life are nurtured, from academics and athletics to public service and spirituality.

  • Freedom To Teach

    The School values academic freedom and entrusts teachers with the responsibility for curriculum development within established guidelines. It encourages individual approaches to teaching and promotes innovation in the classroom.
  • Spiritual Life

    The School recognizes the spiritual element of life, encouraging each student to strengthen his/her whole self by developing the emotional, moral and spiritual aspects of life in concert with the intellectual and physical. At the same time, the School respects the rich diversity of religious backgrounds within our student community.
  • A Balanced Life

    The School expects both teachers and students to be committed fully to the co-curricular life of the School. Students will thus capitalize on the many opportunities available out of class to develop into well-rounded individuals with lifelong habits of physical fitness, an appreciation of the arts, and such personal qualities as commitment to community service.

  • Healthy Competition

    The School promotes healthy and honest competition while at the same time encouraging students to balance the need to compete with the need to work cooperatively with others. We also recognize that individuals should be encouraged to develop their full potential at their own pace, and, within the bounds of cooperative living, in their own way.
  • Mutual Respect

    The foundation of both self-worth and effective cooperation is mutual respect. The School expects that all members of the KES community show respect for others. All teachers, students and support staff are entitled to that respect.
