About

Episcopal Day School, a coeducational independent school founded in 1952, is located in the heart of historic downtown Pensacola, Florida. Offering a holistic approach to advanced education, we believe in cultivating the growth of the whole child and building a balanced foundation in academic excellence, social awareness, moral characteristics and meaningful service.

While grounded in the Episcopal tradition, our goal is to educate and develop the finest and most inspirational global leaders through the following initiatives: innovative and interactive curriculum standards, a nurturing environment, an enriched student life, modernly designed campuses and engaged parent involvement.
