Holy Innocents' Episcopal School is an Episcopal day school enrolling boys and girls in Pre-School through Grade 12. The School was founded in 1959 by parishioners of Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church to provide children with an enriching educational program in a Christian environment. HIES has grown into one of the largest independent schools in Metro Atlanta, as well as one of the largest Episcopal schools in the United States. A fully accredited, college-preparatory day school for 3-year-old through 12th-grade boys and girls, HIES occupies 42 acres, with separate Primary, Lower, Middle, and Upper School facilities, a fine arts building, two modern gymnasiums, and sprawling athletic fields and facilities.
At every level, HIES offers an enriching program based on the Episcopal education tradition of inclusion, exploration, and respect for self and others. Academic expectations are rigorous. The arts, physical education and community service are also emphasized as important aspects of each student’s development.
HIES prepares students not only for the next step in their academic careers, but also for success and satisfaction in all areas of their lives. Students develop strong foundations to address life’s challenges while pursuing personal goals and gaining valuable experience in the areas that most interest them.
The goal of HIES is to provide an atmosphere that encourages students to reach their full potential and become involved and responsible citizens.
Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School develops in students a love of learning, respect for self and others, faith in God, and a sense of service to the world community.
Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees directs the governance of the school, working under the Vestry of the church. While a Vestry member is appointed to serve as a regular member of the school Board, the Head of School, the Board Chair, and at least 40 percent of the Board of Trustees are HIEC parishioners. The Rector is a member of the Board and works closely with the Head, Chair and Chaplains as an advocate of the school's Episcopal character. The Chaplains play an active role in Sunday worship services in addition to school duties.
