Welcome to Holy Comforter Episcopal School!
I hope our website will better acquaint you with the people and programs that make HCES such a unique place. Established in 1955, Holy Comforter is the oldest independent school in Tallahassee and has offered an innovative program focused on educating the whole child in a caring and supportive community. A HCES education is defined by the pursuit of excellence and a commitment to build character through a balanced program of academics, spiritual development, athletics and the arts.
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 Inspire Children to Be the Difference both in and out of the classroom by offering opportunities to grow 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 make decisions on what is in the best interest of our students. From pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, HCES students thrive in an intimate caring environment characterized by small classes, innovative instruction and individualized attention. Our dedicated and talented teachers are expert educators who are focused on the personal growth and success of each child. A strong partnership exists with our families who volunteer their time, talents, and resources to enhance the educational experience and strengthen our school community.
We believe that your child comes to us as a unique creation of God to love and nurture. We seek to help each student reach his or her full educational potential. I encourage you to visit our beautiful 85-acre 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 a proud alum and two current students thriving here at Holy Comforter!
