Welcome from the Head of School

Greetings from our beautiful 40-acre campus!


The story of Evansville Day School is a special one. It is a story of inclusion, resilience, and, most of all, excellence. As the Tri-State region’s only independent, and premier college preparatory school, we are proud of our tradition and our exciting vision for the future centered on the Portrait of a Graduate.

The classic question that all children get asked is: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”  At Day School, we can’t predict what industries and jobs our students will eventually pursue, but we are confident that each one will be prepared for the challenges and opportunities this century has to offer. For each student, we look not only at who they are today, but at who they are becoming. With this view in mind, we are able to develop and hone new skillsets that will allow each of our students to flourish. So what will a Day School student be when they grow up?

A Day School student will be an ENTREPRENEURIAL LEARNER. They will be an independent and passionate individual, optimistic about possibilities, inquisitive and curious, and ready to forge new pathways to success.

A Day School student will be GLOBALLY MINDED. They will be able to work and live alongside others with empathy, serving their fellow humankind in all its diversity, while also being able to see the big picture and boldly pursue positive change in their communities.

A Day School student will be BALANCED. They will understand their limits but strive for greatness, seeking both a sense of personal peace and understanding of themselves, and of others. They will know how to lead and how to follow, how to work and how to play, how to love unconditionally and how to challenge boundaries with compassion.

A Day School student will be RESILIENT. They will be tenacious and courageous in their personal and professional pursuits. They will also know how to lead with respect, and above all, display integrity and honesty in all their relationships.

Evansville Day School is the best of the educational world: we are high achievers with a growth mindset, within a positive, nurturing, and supportive community, where education is a dynamic and evolving experience. We hope you will visit us to see how imagination, inspiration, and innovation create the incredible learning environment at EDS.
