About Heathwood Hall Episcopal School
Heathwood Hall Episcopal School (HHES) is an independent, Episcopal day school founded in
1951 that serves 730+ children ages 2 through Grade 12. Just minutes away from the urban
grandeur of South Carolina’s capital city, Heathwood Hall is a serene, environmental oasis
nestled on 122 acres of wooded wetlands. The campus is bordered on the west by the
Congaree River, and on the north, east and south by lush farmlands.
HHES has long been known as Columbia’s premier independent school. Its tradition of academic excellence is coupled with a longstanding commitment to experiential learning that has led to the development of many distinctive programs.
Holding true to its Episcopal heritage, HHES celebrates and seeks to develop the whole child, and to develop tenacious, sophisticated thinkers who value service to others over self-interest. HHES further supports the development of the whole child through a rich array of extracurricular offerings that create ample opportunities for students to find and nurture their passions beyond the classroom.
HHES believes that children learn best when they are truly known and supported by their teachers. The school’s abiding commitment to bui...lding strong relationships between students and teachers allows the opportunity for each child to be met where they are in their educational and developmental journey, as opposed to taking a one-size-fits-all approach.
While HHES’s outcomes are second-to-none—its students compete nationally and achieve at the highest levels—each student’s Heathwood experience is unique, reflective of his or her interests and abilities, challenges and talents, goals and ethos. HHES graduates don’t just master the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and beyond; they know themselves, and know how to advocate for themselves, in ways that set them apart from most of their peers. They leave Heathwood prepared not only to take on our dynamic world, but to transform it.
While the school community includes members of many faith traditions, Heathwood is an Episcopal School where all students and faculty gather, by school division, for worship and prayer each Wednesday in the on-campus Chapel of the Epiphany. The school is affiliated with the Episcopal diocese and benefits from a supportive Episcopal community in Columbia. It is a school that engenders strong loyalty and strong connections, and promotes an authentic spirit of inclusivity, acceptance, and care for each individual.
Today, HHES seeks an experienced development professional who appreciates the culture of this exemplary place, shares it values, and will cultivate relationships and gifts to ensure the betterment of the school.
