  • What E-D-S Means to Me

    Posted: September 07, 2022 | Written by: Nate Phillips with editing by Megan Risewick

    Nate Phillips, an EDS Junior, has been an Eagle for 14 years. In his time being a lifer, Nate has not only grown up - but has flourished as a student, person, and athlete. Sports are a vital part of Nate’s life; being a part of Day School’s Varsity soccer, basketball, and golf teams. Here is his reflection on the influence being an EDS student athlete has had on his life thus far:

    E - Excellence 

    I have always strived to be the best, especially in soccer. I have always felt supported by Coach Dragon, who has been my gym teacher, and now coach from the time I was 3....

    Class Thank You

    Posted: June 09, 2022 | Written by: Ty Wellemeyer

    It doesn’t feel real. Today is my last day of high school classes. On May 20th, I’ll be handed my diploma and officially move on to the next chapter. On top of this life-changing moment, I am given the opportunity to give a speech thanking everyone who has helped me along the way while throwing in some words of advice. The only issue is I have a time limit and too many people to thank, meaning I might have to say “thank you to my class.’ However, that would be a great disservice to my classmates because they have been amazing people. Therefore I have decided to thank each person individually in this...

    When New York City was announced as a 2022 Intersession Opportunity, I was thrilled. New York has been a dream destination of mine ever since middle school, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to spend time with my friends in what seemed like such a magical place. It had been three years since I had participated in an intersession trip, with COVID altering the world for two years, and I think I was the first person who submitted their check to secure a spot on the trip. Simply put, I was excited. My excitement further grew once the chaperones began creating the itinerary, which included trips to the...

    Three Day School Students Selected for 2022 High School Art Show

    Posted: May 16, 2022 | Written by: Ty Wellemeyer

    Every year, the Evansville Museum hosts a High School Art Show that showcases the best pieces of art from around the entire Southern Indiana region. Art teachers submit pieces of artwork from Grades 9-12 to the museum; a panel of jurors then judge the work and choose approximately 110 pieces of art that they deem worthy of displaying. Being chosen out of the vast pool of artwork is considered to be a huge accomplishment.

    This year, Upper School art teacher Clinton Bosler submitted 19 pieces of artwork into the Evansville Museum’s high school art show, and three were chosen to participate...

College Counseling

For students, the questions surrounding the experience are huge: Where should I go to school?  What will I major in?  How do I stand out so I can get into my dream school?  What if I change my mind?

For parents, the decisions keep them up at night, too: How will we afford to send our child to college?  Does my child’s dream school support him/her in reaching his/her goals?  Is the campus safe?  How am I supposed to let go and let my child take the reins when this is the most important decision of his/her life up to now?
