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).
EPDS is also pleased to offer both full and partial tuition scholarships for qualified students. The scholarship awards will be a 25% or greater reduction of the student’s tuition. We encourage families to complete this brief application and visit Eastern Point Day School to see if the school is the right fit for your child and family.
Academic excellence is supported by thematic teaching, curriculum integration and collaboration among teachers at all grade levels. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are emphasized while small class sizes nurture creativity and allows for classroom flexibility.
Enrichment programs including Art, Creative Movement, Drama, Music, Physical Ed are boosted by community partnerships with Cape Ann Museum, Maritime Heritage Museum, YMCA, Gloucester Stage Co. and many other Cape Ann non-profits and businesses focused on enriching the education of our children.
A Beautiful Setting
Our beautiful campus overlooking the Atlantic Ocean inspires a child's imagination and enhances respect for nature. Our in-school and field experiences embrace Cape Ann and our New England heritage.
