St. David’s School is a premier academic community with Christian faculty, welcoming families of all faiths and backgrounds. We partner with parents to develop their children both academically and spiritually.

"Through faith, virtue and knowledge, we can help our students gain the confidence, courage and compassion to be who God created them to be, and have them make a difference both at home and around the world."
- Todd von Helms


Faculty-To-Student Ratio

St. David’s cultivates intellectual growth through a robust and challenging curriculum that entertains and excites inquiry. Diverse thoughts and perspectives are appreciated and explored. This free exchange of ideas is facilitated by teachers who sharpen critical thinking skills, while fostering an understanding of the Christian worldview that gives meaning to life and knowledge.  

Classes are kept small and intimate, so that every child receives individual attention throughout their school day. St. David’s maintains a faculty-to-student ratio of one-to-eight. 80% of our Upper School faculty, and nearly 55% of all school faculty have earned at least one advanced degree.

St. David’s is an independent school in the Episcopal school tradition that prepares young men and women for college and life by challenging them to excel in the vital areas of faith, virtue and knowledge.

The school's motto of Faith, Virtue, Knowledge is derived from the full Latin text of 2 Peter 1:5:

"Curam omnem subinferentes ministrate in fide vestra virtutem, in virtute autem scientiam."  

Translated it means, "And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge."

St. David's seeks to serve as a model Christ-centered college preparatory school by equipping its graduates to successfully engage and impact their generation for Jesus Christ.
