Admission Staff

A school

No one knows boys better.

That’s why each gets his own customized education plan and the support of our staff of learning specialists.

Climbing the walls comes naturally.

Boys are loud and messy and can't sit still. And that's completely okay. We're experts at directing that energy.

We bring out the best in boys.

Our character education program, Building Boys, Making Men, is integrated into every corner of our campus.

A state-of-the-boy campus.

Macbooks, Mandarin, Design Thinking, and Maker’s Club. Even our littlest guys are learning to code.

Presbyterian Day School (PDS) is a private, Christian preschool and elementary school serving boys from 2-years-old through 6th grade for almost 75 years.

With our mission of striving to glorify God by developing boys in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man, we take a holistic approach to education, nurturing the heart, soul, mind, and body of each boy.
