Summer Academy


We truly appreciate your patience while we evaluated and made decisions about opening Summer Academy this year. We have spent considerable time weighing the different factors that affect this decision, not the least of which is what you and your family have come to rely upon from Summer Academy. We have ultimately made the very difficult decision to not open Summer Academy in 2020 due to a variety of factors related to Coronavirus. Click here for full information released on May 28. 



Evansville Day School is proud to offer Summer Academy for children age 3 through Grade 8. EDS Summer Academy offers educational and fun programs designed to engage young minds throughout the summer months. Summer Academy enrollees enjoy learning experiences tailored to each grade level and guaranteed to make the summer both interesting and fun!

Eaglets (3 - 4 year olds)

The Preschool program at Evansville Day School's Summer Academy is like no other in the area! An amazing team of educators have developed engaging, entertaining, and educational activities, for ages 3 - 4. Please note: children must also be potty trained.

Rising Eagles (K - 8th Grade)

Rising Kindergarten - 8th Grade students explore and learn while having FUN! On "Traveling Tuesdays," students take field trips to a different destination based on the theme of the week. We also offer theme-based specialty classes to add extra excitement to each week. Summer Academy emphasizes team building, communication skills, and theme-based explorations. Students interact with multiple teachers, each bringing their own specialized skills to the classroom. 

Soaring Eagles (5th - 8th Grade)

We are excited to continue this special program for rising 5th - 8th graders this year! Soaring Eagles meet from 12:00 - 3:00 pm each day of the week during each week of Summer Academy, except July 1 - 5. Soaring Eagles will explore weekly themes designed with the skills and interests of middle school students in mind. Full day programming is also available by combining a morning Rising Eagles session with an afternoon in Soaring Eagles.
