What is Chapel?

St. Thomas School was founded by St. Thomas Episcopal Church. Although the School is now fully independent with no parochial affiliation, we maintain the historical tradition of Chapel as one of our hallmarks.

We gather each morning for a community meeting in Chapel, where time is set aside for listening and doing the important “inner work” or reflection that allows us to bring deeper meaning to our lives. The primary focus of Chapel is on developing character, leadership and presentation skills, shared core values/virtues, and an understanding of world religions all within a school-wide community that emphasizes a sense of belonging and inclusion and celebrates diversity.

What is Edgework?
