The Annual Fund is PDS’ first giving priority because of its immediate impact on our greatest asset: our boys. Dollars raised help PDS be the incredible place it is for 500 boys each and every day. For over 70 years, PDS has been focused on academic excellence, Christian character development, and BOYS!
By giving to PDS’ Annual Fund, you are sending a powerful message that you believe in the school’s mission, tradition of excellence, and incredibly bright future.
At PDS, and all independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of a boy’s education. Your gift helps bridge the gap between tuition and the true cost of educating a PDS boy.
Tuition dollars cover just under 90% of the true cost of educating a PDS boy. The Annual Fund is the only source of immediately available and flexible funds that ensures that we meet this commitment to excellence each year.
Our mission is simple: we strive to glorify God as we develop boys in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. When you walk on campus, you will see our mission lived out as our teachers and boys work together to become stronger in both character and knowledge. You will see first-hand the difference that a PDS education makes in the life of a boy.
Every donation, large or small, makes a difference in helping us educate and prepare young boys for success and a lifetime love of learning. If we want the best learning, we need the best teachers and resources — that’s costly — and not possible based solely on tuition. And that’s one place where the Annual Fund makes a difference.
As we consider professional development requests for this year, requests for curricular resources, requests for athletic equipment, and the like, it is the Annual Fund that makes the difference between yes and no.
You could say the Annual Fund is the difference between good and great. It makes a huge difference to the boys of PDS.
Presbyterian Day School (PDS) is a private, Christian preschool and elementary school serving 500 boys from 2-years-old through 6th grade.
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.
