Chapel, Religion, and Spirituality at Bishop Seabury Academy

Bishop Seabury Academy is an Episcopal school. Unlike an Episcopal church, our congregation is multi-religious, with many Christians and a significant number of students and adults from other religions. Our goal as an Episcopal school is to nurture the spirituality of each person and to welcome everyone to our community.

Every Wednesday morning begins with an all-school chapel worship facilitated by a group of students and faculty who promote the spiritual health of the school. Chapel services incorporate elements of prayer, scripture, personal reflection, music, art, and technology. The school year also includes Convocation and Baccalaureate, two annual worship events that celebrate our community’s inclusive Episcopal heritage. From our spiritual grounding in the Episcopal tradition, we also join in the celebrations of other religious traditions.

Students at Seabury study the world’s religions and ethical traditions rigorously and with respect. Our community service program incorporates each student into the life of our wider Lawrence community, with particular attention to and solidarity with those in need. At Seabury, we come to serve, not to be served.

Each student’s experience of Seabury will push them to wrestle with the biggest questions of meaning and value in life, and come to some answers by way of classes, chapel, service, and self-reflection. At Seabury, each person is nurtured not only academically but also physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
