The Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys is a tuition-free Episcopal school for children from traditionally underserved communities. Ours is a Christian community of learners that welcomes boys of all faiths and beliefs. The School nurtures the spiritual, intellectual, social-emotional, artistic, and physical development of its students. Working in close partnership with students and families, the School strives to create an environment where each boy is challenged to reach his full academic potential and receives the structured support necessary to develop his unique gifts. The Bishop Walker School seeks to foster a love of learning, intellectual curiosity, a spiritual foundation, and the moral character that each boy will need as a student, a citizen, and a child of God.
The Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys works to alter the educational and social trajectories of children from traditionally underserved communities and prepares them for leadership and service both inside their communities and beyond.
Philosophy and Values
Grant O Lord,
That in all the joys of life,
We may never forget to be kind.
Help us to be unselfish in friendship,
Thoughtful of those less happy than ourselves,
And eager to bear the burdens of others;
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen

Statement on Inclusion and Episcopal Identity

The intentional development of school communities where people of different backgrounds and points of view come together as a body. Diversity is both a source of strength and a primary means of enhancing the intellectual, social, spiritual and moral life of the school. (Rev. 7:9-10)
Beyond the sheer presence of a diverse group of people, inclusion is the process by which members of the community honor one another, welcome many voices, and work toward the ongoing broadening of the community’s horizons. (Romans 15:7)
Equity is the condition where fairness and faithfulness thrive, and all members of the community are respected for their inherent dignity as human beings and capacity to contribute to the building up of the common life. (Psalm 33:5)
The courageous and continual attention to and advocacy on behalf of those most vulnerable in the community. (Proverbs 31:8-9)
Dignity speaks to the inherent worth of all human beings, what human beings strive to be seen as possessing, and the primary lens through which we view all human beings. (Gal. 3:28)
