Episcopal Day School (EDS) traces its rich history to 1959, the year it was officially founded in Southern Pines, NC. This conversation about one of the most esteemed schools in the Sandhills will focus on several salient topics: EDS’ mission; its nature as an independent school, rather than a “private school;” its unique characteristics that differentiate it from other nonpublic schools; its curriculum; its focus on traits of character, including the powerful Fruit of the Spirit program; its technology program; and finally, its PTA and upcoming major fundraiser, The Candlelight Tour of Homes.
Families are drawn to EDS because of its safe, nurturing environment, its deep spiritual foundation, its high expectations concerning student behavior, its population of bright, engaged students, its opportunities for parental involvement, and the successes of its graduates in middle school, high school and beyond. EDS is focused on engendering the next generation of forward thinking leaders, and this discussion will allow listeners to better understand how EDS is achieving this important goal.
Participating in the discussion are Tom Brereton, Head of School, Jill Connett, Director of Academics, Tracy Corbett, Educational Technologist, and Harley Hall, current parent.
