Growing the Tradition

 Construction is complete on our beautiful new building, Lillibridge Hall.  The building was dedicated on Sept. 27 at a worship service, ribbon cutting, and community party.  

"Old school building, good bones, desperately seeks your help to make dreams come true."

In 1954 St. David's Episcopal School opened in Terrell Hills, just outside of downtown San Antonio.  In the years since, our excellent and wonderfully different church school community nurtured Christ's love in thousands of children.  Today, with 29 educators and over 170 enrolled, there's nothing like St. David's Episcopal School for families who want to give their children a great start in life, and who value God, learning, and loving their neighbors.

The original school buildings were completed in the early 1950's, along with the original church structure, now called Jackson Hall.  Jackson Hall has served long and well, performing many functions, including parlor, staff offices, classrooms, library, teachers' workroom, and music room.  With a rich history, it's a wonderful old building...but the key word is old.  

Based on a feasibility study that reviewed the condition of Jackson Hall and the cost of "Band-aid maintenance" we came to the decision to replace it with a new structure that will serve the needs of our students, church and community for years to come.  In response to community feedback, we sharpened our pencils and simplified the plans to include our highest priorities, including classrooms, adult restrooms, and safe and welcoming spaces for students, parishioners and neighbors. 

Our Request of You

St. David's Episcopal Church and School will have to raise $2,100,000 to replace Jackson Hall with new, modern classrooms to serve current preschool students and our growing enrollment; keeping our essential programs operating at 100% during construction; and increasing available space to serve church and community needs.

Your support of the campaign and its objectives will allow St. David's to address its most pressing priorities in a timely manner.  The history of St. David's is a story of bold decisions to seize moments of opportunity.  At every point, leaders have emerged from among supporters to help us make dreams a reality.

The GROWING THE TRADITION CAMPAIGN is one of those moments.
