At OES, we devote time to community. Our Episcopal tradition calls us to be inclusive, respect differences, and be open to all we can learn from one another.

Gathering, Chapel, and shared meals allow students to explore what being part of a community means from civic, ethical, and social perspectives. But community isn’t limited to our campus. At every age, our students participate in experiential and service learning throughout the Portland region. Older students venture even farther through service learning and our global winterim offerings.

Communities are where future leaders, change-makers, and problem-solvers grow. At OES, we want all our students to know their own value and to understand the difference they can make in the world.
