Holy Innocents' Episcopal School is a college-preparatory day school in Atlanta, Georgia for students ages 3 through 12th grade. Founded in 1959, the school offers boys and girls a program based on the Episcopal education tradition of inclusion, scholarly exploration, and respect for self and others. The school's stated mission is to "develop in students a love of learning, respect for self and others, faith in God, and a sense of service to the world community," according to the school website: www.hies.org.
Holy Innocents' is one of the largest Episcopal schools in the United States with a PK-12 enrollment of more than 1,360. In recent years, the school has undergone dramatic expansion: constructing a new Middle School building; doubling the size of the gymnasium and athlete-training complex; and adding two on-campus football/soccer/lacrosse fields. A new Upper School math and science building is scheduled to open in August, 2015, according to the school website.
Recent academic initiatives include the computer Laptop Program. All students in grades 5 through 12 receive Apple MacBook Airs, which are programmed with a range of productivity, research, and multimedia software central to their classes. The Upper School's Program for Global Citizenship includes Comparative Religion, World Literature, Environmental Science, increased foreign language requirements, foreign study, and international service projects.
