Beliefs


Saint Edward School has been a Nashville tradition for over 60 years. Our students and their parents and siblings become St. Edward family members as SES is just that—one great big family. We invite you to join our family and enroll your children in St. Edward School today. Applications for enrollment are now being accepted for all grades. If you have considered St. Edward School in the past, but have financial concerns, we offer tuition assistance for qualifying families. We are happy to meet with you to discuss. Just contact the school office at (615) 833-5770, set up a visit, and you are on your way to joining the SES family.
