St. Mark's Episcopal School was created in 1960 as an educational ministry of St. Mark's Episcopal Church. The School operated as a nursery school for years, then gradually began adding elementary grades, becoming one of the first private elementary schools in the West University area. Eventually adding middle school grades and graduating its first 8th grade class in 1988, St. Mark’s Episcopal School grew into one of the most recognized private schools in the greater Houston, Texas area.
The private Christian school, founded on Episcopalian principles, received its initial accreditation from the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools (recognized by the Texas Education Agency) in 1990.
In 2010, St. Mark's Episcopal School celebrated its 50th year, and continues to grow by bounds each year. Through the years the campus has grown, but small class sizes and low student-to-teacher ratios remain. Each year, the St. Mark’s Annual Fund allows us to provides the supplemental resources needed for the full support of our children and their educational development, including enhancements related to technology, instructional support and curriculum advancement, campus improvements, and professional development for our team of experienced faculty and staff, who have a passion to mentor youth and grow children into the leaders of tomorrow.
The campus is located inside loop 610 in West University, close to Bellaire.
