Every student comes to The Lovett School on the first steps of a journey uniquely his or her own—already steered by individual strengths and personal passions, already shaped by innate talents and distinctive graces. At Lovett, we honor all of each child, fostering inquisitive minds as well as joyful spirits, strong bodies, good characters, and empathetic hearts.
Our approach is guided by the values of our founder, Mrs. Eva Edwards Lovett—an innovative educator who emphasized whole-child development, education through doing, and joyful learning. Almost 100 years later, our continuing mission is to provide experiences that inspire an enduring enthusiasm for learning and to graduate young people of honor, faith, and wisdom.
At Lovett, our students learn to ask good questions and navigate abundant information, to develop imaginative ideas and innovative alternatives, and to forge consensus and connection within diverse groups. Lovett students feel known, seen, and safe to take considered risks, learn from challenges, and carefully think through important questions of faith and citizenship. As a result, they develop the cheerful resilience to thrive—in their time with us, in college and career, and in life itself.
