Mission & Vision

Ensworth is a kindergarten through twelfth grade, coeducational independent school. The School promotes academic excellence and inspires students to be intellectually curious, to use their talents to the fullest, to be people of integrity, and to be contributors to society.

Vision Statement

We envision a school community dedicated to following the highest principles with the greatest love, as characterized by moral integrity, intellectual vitality, discipline, compassion, humor and joy.

We envision a school where a deep sense of community and belonging pervades all aspects of school life, where all members participate in a broad array of diverse activities both in and out of the classroom, and where collaboration, integration, and tradition thrive.

We envision a school committed to growth and learning for all members of its community, as reflected in communication that is open, honest, and direct, in decision-making that is inclusive, flexible, and efficient, in school governance that is clear and transparent, in practices that honor diversity of mind, and in opportunities for faculty development and innovation as fundamental components of their professional responsibilities.

And we envision a school that reaches beyond itself to its broader community, that embraces service opportunities, and that serves as a leader in the national educational community.

In Search of Truth Motto

Ensworth believes that the pursuit of knowledge and discovery is a lifelong journey. Through our Guiding Principles of Moral Integrity, Intellectual Vitality, Discipline, Compassion, Humor, and Joy, we equip our students with the skills required to think critically, embrace challenges, communicate and collaborate effectively, act ethically, and serve selflessly.
