Holy Innocents' Episcopal School is a college-preparatory day school in Atlanta, Georgia, United States 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".
Holy Innocents' is one of the largest Episcopal schools in the United States, with a PK-12 enrollment of more than 1,375. In recent years the school has undergone dramatic expansion: constructing a new 65,000 sq. foot STEM building, adding a new middle school building, doubling the size of the gymnasium and athlete-training complex, and adding two on-campus football/soccer/lacrosse fields.
Recent academic initiatives include the 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.
Golden Bear athletic teams play at the GHSA AA division level.
