EQV page on EA website

Esse Quam Videri is a student leadership group made up of ten EA seniors who were elected by their peers and the upper school faculty. At the end of every year, twenty finalists are selected based on their reputation of passion and enthusiasm for the school. After an application process, the final group of ten students is chosen to represent the community and serve as mentors for the student body. The committee is supervised and aided by Kim Piersall, our Director of Experiential Learning, and the senior class form dean. In addition to participating in a three day retreat prior to the beginning of school, EQV plans numerous events and year long activities intended to connect everyone in the community. EQV epitomizes the diversity of EA, because each one of its members is unique and representative of varied arenas of school life.

Mission Statement: EQV strives to unify the Episcopal Academy community and to foster a sense of family by modeling positive leadership
