This school provides an excellent education and has gone from good to great to incredible with their adoption of the "Leader in me" program. St. Edwards is in one of the best public school districts so being a private school it needs to provide something better - and it does. Caring faculty, sound facilities, good after school options and excellent leadership from the principal on down. The "Leader in me" program is teaching kids versions of the seven habits of highly effective people and our sons have really engaged with it. 15hrs of parental involvement is mandatory but there are so many ways to contribute that it really serves as a way to just be involved with your kids. Catholic education is presented, but the school is not dogmatic and multiple perspectives are welcomed. Overall we've had a great experience and highly recommend this school as a better alternative to an already great public school system in this area.

St. Edward-Epiphany School is recognized as National Blue Ribbon School! The school provides a strong academic and spiritual foundation. Communication and community connection are just a couple of its benefits. Students are well prepared for high school!

St. Edward-Epiphany School (SEES) stands apart from the other private schools in Richmond in one unique way- your family will belong to a strong community that is invested in your child's academic, spiritual and emotional well being. Academics are comparable to other private schools, but with a much more accessible tuition rate than the competitors. This allows for a more diverse community of families. The teacher turn over is low, offering your family the wonderful experience of engaging in a partnership with your child's teachers that begins in Pre-K and follows through your child's 8th grade year. The teachers truly love the children that come through their classrooms, and they stay connected to your family throughout your child's education. Parent involvement is a vital piece of the success at SEES. Parents are required to volunteer 15 hours each year, which offers you an intimate seat in your child's academic journey. WIth strong parent involvement, compassionate leadership from Mrs. Elliott, and a personable and professional faculty, SEES lives out their mission to educate the "whole child" in an environment that is as loving as it is academically challenging.

SEES has a great community of involved parents, carent & talented teachers, strong leadership from admin, and a high level of school spirit among the students. The price is right compared to others and it's an excellent alternative to the very weak public school alternatives in the area.

Academic programs are good. Music, Art, sports are all available. 15 hours of parent involvement required per year. Good school, but some people send their kids here simply because it is not a public school, vs. because it is a 'Catholic' school. The religion is important, people.

We just moved to the area and my children feel very accepted and cared for going to St. Edward's. As well as learning Christian values, my children also have the opportunity to participate in sports and extra curricular activities.

I do not think that this school is good at all i went there for 3 years and at first everyone was fine until they learnt that i lived in a poor place and that i did not have that much money basically their teachin is fine but the people involved with the school are terrible if you do not have money the parents will snub you and the children will outcast you especially if you are just a little bit overweight i would never recommend this school for anyone unless they have gone there since kindergarten or have friends that already go there.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
