Episcopal High School of Baton Rouge, owned and operated by the Diocese of the Episcopal Church of Louisiana, is the leading independent school in Baton Rouge. Located on a beautiful 55-acre campus in the southeastern section of the city, it was established in 1965 as a challenging college preparatory school. It now serves students in grades PK-12. The low student/teacher ratio of 11:1 allows a relationship between student and teacher that recognizes the personal needs and individual levels of achievement of its 1,034 students.
Episcopal’s facilities include the Visual and Performing Arts Center, the Middle School building, a science building, the Lower School and Greer Center for the Performing Arts, the Kindergarten and Pre-K building, large classroom buildings, a chapel, Alumni House, and a dining hall. The school also has computer and writing labs, as well as computers with Internet access in each classroom. The main library was renovated in 1999 and includes computer labs for class use. A second newly renovated library serves Episcopal’s Lower School students. Athletic facilities include two gymnasiums, a weight room, a football stadium, soccer fields, a softball field, an all-weather track, a heated swimming pool, five tennis courts, and a baseball complex.
