St. Martin's was founded in 1947 in the developing suburb of Metairie, as part of its namesake mission church. St. Martin's was the first Episcopal school established in the area. Quickly, it began to grow in popularity and size. By 1949, the expanding school had outstripped the facilities at St. Martin's Church. Plans to add a high school required new space, and the church acquired the Green Acres Farm along what is now Airline Drive, stretching from the road to the lake. In 1950, the school moved to its current 18-acre site, and in 1951, graduated its first senior class. In 1963, St. Martin's Church transferred ownership of the school to the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana, and St. Martin's became a diocesan school.
For over 60 years, St. Martin's Episcopal School has built a reputation for excellence among New Orleans' independent college-preparatory schools. Though located in the suburbs of New Orleans, St. Martin's has been committed to serve as a metropolitan school not limited to or dominated by a particular neighborhood, area, or social grouping. This metropolitan approach has been an integral part of the school's history and remains a consistent element of the school community today. Leadership is nurtured here by a distinctive faith-based approach to learning. At the heart of its mission, the school focuses on developing the whole child within the context of a Christian community, a family atmosphere, and a coeducational environment.
St. Martin's Episcopal School provides students from age 18 months through grade 12 with a superior and challenging college preparatory education focused on development of the whole person within the context of a Christian community, a family atmosphere and a coeducational environment. Our Mission Statement: We prepare students to thrive in college and in life through faith, scholarship and service.
