Welcome to Eastern Point Day School

Serving grades PreK-8, EPDS offers an outstanding academic experience through a blend of traditional and innovative learning opportunities, where students embrace respect and dignity for others, and blossom with self-esteem. As our students progress through EPDS we help prepare them with the personal skills, leadership abilities, and confidence necessary to make healthy choices and become outstanding citizens who contribute to our community and beyond.

Our reasonable tuition makes an independent school education attainable for most North Shore families. Our tuition is less than half the cost of most North Shore independent day schools. But we know sometimes tuition assistance may be needed. Any family can choose to apply for financial aid through the school's affiliation with the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).

We encourage families to visit Eastern Point Day School to see if the school is the right fit for your child and family.
