Welcome to The Episcopal Cathedral School web page!  We are a non-profit, coeducational diocesan  school of The Episcopal Church in Puerto Rico (Anglican Communion) located on the grounds of the  Cathedral Church of St. John the Baptist in Santurce.  We admit students of any racial, national, religious or ethnic origin who can pass our entrance exam.  All courses in grades K-12 are taught in English, except required Spanish courses.


ECS history began in 1946 when the late Very Rev. Arístedes Villafañe, Dean of the Cathedral Church, started a kindergarten on the Cathedral grounds.  As time went on more grades were added, until all grades through high school were represented.  Our school is one of the best college preparatory schools in San Juan; our graduates are accepted consistently by the universities of their choice both here and in the United States.  These universities include Harvard, Yale, M.I.T., Pratts, Universidad Complutense de Madrid and many others.  The Episcopal Cathedral School is accredited  by The Middle States Association and Comisión Acreditadora de Instituciones Educativas (CADIE). 


Our curriculum  is quite extensive, including A.P. and Honors courses, as well as music, dance, art and Christian values.  Our students obtain very high marks on College Board tests.  We maintain a family-type  environment, and we are preparing to celebrate our 70th anniversary during the next school year.


We are honored that you consider The Episcopal Cathedral School as your partner in the education of your child.  Welcome to our school:  we are family… we are ECS.
