Welcome to Holy Comforter Episcopal School! HCES has a long history of academic excellence by offering an enriched learning environment based on Christian principles enhancing the mind, body and spirit of all of our students. At HCES we strive to instill habits and attitudes conducive to academic achievement, responsible behavior, positive nurturing relationships, respect for others and maturity. Our goal is to educate the whole child.
We believe that your child comes to us as a unique creation of God to love and nurture. We seek to help each child reach his or her full educational potential. We also believe that the way we teach and learn should be combined with the ability to nourish our students both socially and spiritually; a combination that fosters independence and creativity, while developing a child’s intrinsic motivation to learn and grow. At Holy Comforter, we engage and encourage caring, inquisitive thinkers who love to learn.
Founded in 1955, Holy Comforter is the oldest independent school in the Tallahassee area and holds the highest accreditation. We are accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools, the Florida Kindergarten Council, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Board of Regents of the Diocese of Florida.
Our website is designed to provide a glimpse into the culture and values of our school. I hope that you will visit our beautiful campus, meet our dedicated faculty and get to know the people that help create our school family. On a personal note I am excited to not only be the Head of School, but also the parent of three students thriving here at Holy Comforter!
