Service Learning

At Episcopal Day School, we believe in sending our students into the world with a mutual respect for others, a love for giving and learning, and an understanding of contributing to others’ strength and purpose. Service learning is a strongly emphasized component of our education. Foundational to our Episcopal identity, our students participate in philanthropic and service learning activities, while building active and engaged partnerships within our Pensacola community.

Making a Continuous Impact in our Community and World

EDS Service Learning Manna Food Pantries
Manna Food Pantries
Every November, we join the Manna Food Pantries, a local, grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting hunger in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, for their Fill the Mayflower event. Recently breaking an EDS record with 2,843 pounds of food, we made an unforgettable mark and helped to provide a day’s worth of food for 811 people.
EDS Service Learning School Week
Episcopal School Week
During Episcopal School Week every year, we focus on reaching out to our community and sharing the many gifts and talents of our students and teachers. Our themes, which change every year to fit the need, creates conversations and inspires thought. In the past we have created inspirational bookmarks, sent letters to college-aged alumni, made blankets for the less fortunate and more.
EDS Service Learning From the Ground Up
From the Ground Up
"From the Ground Up" is a community garden service project our 6th graders join. The students do everything from pulling weeds and painting signs to testing and recording soil temperature levels. We’re helping to improve the health and well-being of the people in our community, as well as beautify a neighborhood.

Every year, all grade levels actively choose to give back to an area they’re most passionate about helping.
