Welcome from the Head of School

Greetings from our beautiful 40-acre campus!

Evansville Day School turns 70 and we are celebrating our incredible school and its growth from humble beginnings in 1946. It is a story of inclusion, resilience, and, most of all, excellence. As Evansville’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.

While our community features countless hallmarks and outcomes we have identified three identifiers of a Day School education:

Independent. Established through passion and vision in 1946 as the region’s only independent school, Evansville Day School is free to design unique programs and experiences focused on what each student learns and, more importantly, what he or she becomes.

Bold. Our focus is creating balanced, resilient, globally minded, entrepreneurial learners. As a result, our students excel academically while developing the “futureproof” skills they need to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Rewarding. In addition to 100% college placement, each graduate earns, on average, $210,000 in scholarships. Day School students also benefit from a ground-breaking, challenging curriculum and an alumni network of local and global leaders.

From powerful student-teacher relationships, small classes, a commitment to the arts, a culture of inclusion, and a highly-accomplished student body we invite you to Discover Why our Junior Pre-K through Grade 12 community is an amazing place to learn and to teach.  

What happens at Evansville Day School is special. It is not what you have come to think of as school. Here, creativity trumps rote memorization, diversity is as valued as test-taking, and experiential learning is preferred over textbooks. We hope you will visit us to  see how imagination, inspiration, and innovation can create an incredible learning environment.

Warmest regards,

Jarin Jaffee
