Welcome to the Episcopal Day School.
I invite you to explore our website and visit our campus so that you can begin to discover the immeasurable value of an EDS education.
On your first look you will see all of the ingredients of excellence in education: experienced and dedicated faculty, high academic standards in a safe and nurturing environment, small class sizes, a commitment to individual development, and an active and involved parent body.
But I invite you to look closer and you will see much more that makes EDS a unique opportunity even among independent schools.
Outstanding programs in athletics, PE, the arts, and community service demonstrate our commitment to all dimensions of education: heart, mind, body, and soul.
The rich history of our community grounds us in a tradition of shared purpose and values.
Ned R.
Murray, Headmaster

School Notes:

AT EDS, LEARNING GOES FAR BEYOND THE CLASSROOM. IT REACHES INTO THE PLAYING FIELD AND THE CHAPEL, THE COMMUNITY AND THE HOMES OF OUR FAMILIES. IT ENGAGES ALL OF THE SENSES, AND IT TOUCHES SOMETHING DEEP INSIDE EACH CHILD'S NATURAL CURIOSITY. WE BELIEVE EVERY STUDENT HERE IS SPECIAL. AT EDS, WE HELP EACH CHILD GAIN A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR A LIFE OF INTELLECTUAL, SOCIAL, AND SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT.
