Episcopal Day School believes in implementing a strong academic program with particular emphasis on the basic academic skills and encouraging each child to strive to attain his/her maximum potential. We further believe in guiding each child in his/her spiritual growth, fostering a love for learning, and instilling in each child a respect for oneself and others. It is our intent that these beliefs be accomplished within the context of a Christian community where each person – student, teacher, administrator, and staff member – is seen and valued as a child of God, and where truth and the freedom which truth provides will ever be sought.

The Episcopal Day School is fully accredited by the Southwest Association of Episcopal Schools (SAES) and the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission (TEPSAC,) a division of the Texas Education Agency.

Linear Park of Brownsville

Posted on Rails to Trails.

The Active Plan is poised to turn south Texas into a world-class tourist destination—and spark a new era for health and wellness.

There’s a saying that “Everything’s bigger in Texas.” In the Lower Rio Grande Valley, 10 municipalities in Cameron County are proving the expression right as they embark on the creation of a 428-mile network of multiuse trails, bicycle routes and paddling trails aimed at connecting the region’s rich natural and cultural resources.

Sponsored by The Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation and the University of Texas School of Public Health—as well as the cities of Brownsville, Harlingen, Combes, Los Fresnos, Los Indios, Port Isabel, San Benito, South Padre Island, and the towns of Laguna Vista and Rancho Viejo—the Lower Rio Grande Valley Active Transportation and Tourism Plan, or “Active Plan,” is a first-of-its-kind blueprint to link the beaches, wildlife preserves, waterways and cultural sites the valley is already known for, attract waves of active tourists and transform the health of the local citizenry.
