Our Schools

The Diocese of West Texas has 28 schools, which include stand-alone preschools, elementary and middle schools, and one middle/high school. Every single day, students, faculty, staff and parents walk through the doors and see what the church looks like through the eyes of a school. Many, if not most students in Episcopal schools are not Episcopalian and do not identify as Christians. Most of the schools in our diocese share space with a church, which means that school families are seeing and experiencing Jesus every single day through the school. Our schools are the biggest outreach and mission field that many of our churches support.

Contact Mary Katherine Duffy, Deputy for Episcopal Schools, or visit the Episcopal Schools page to learn more.
