On behalf of our Board of Directors, faculty and staff, welcome to Radford School! I am honored to serve as the Executive Director of Radford School, the oldest private school in El Paso, Texas, founded in 1910. Radford is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (now known as COGNIA) and has been a member since 1923. Currently, we serve 233 students in grades Pre-K through twelve (139 in Lower School and 94 in Upper School). We also offer a Development Readiness Class for three-year-olds.
Our challenging curriculum develops our students as learners and productive citizens to the greatest extent possible. With the assistance of parents, the faculty and administration continue to help students profit from intellectual challenges that they will face in the future. Additionally, students are assisted in formulating short and long-range goals for self-improvement leading to a fulfilling and rewarding life after graduation.
Admission to Radford is based on past academic performance and potential without regard to religious creed or national origin. Please visit our Admissions page for information about admissions requirements. The Radford experience provides an international exchange of knowledge, ideas, and customs because of the diverse, multicultural student body. The Radford student population includes students from many different countries of the world.
The Radford philosophy includes the motto disco ut servem, which translated means: I learn that I may serve. To instill the value of becoming productive citizens of our society, Radford students are expected to serve their community by performing some form of community service in an ongoing project throughout their middle and high school years.
Join us in our mission of encouraging and enabling your child at the highest level, searching for knowledge, skill, and understanding.
We look forward to welcoming you to Radford School!
