Welcome to The Episcopal Day School
Dear Families and Students,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Episcopal Day School. Our school is a ministry of the Church of the Advent, Episcopal in Brownsville, Texas and where we get our spiritual foundation and support from the rector of the church. The school is celebrating its 70th year and is located on a beautiful campus.
We have a butterfly garden that is filled with native plants that are inviting to the butterflies and provides an area for prayer as well as learning for the students. The campus also includes a nature trail that gives the students an opportunity to be taught about Brownsville’s natural beauty and with educational support our students learn how to take care of this wonderful treasure.
The Episcopal Day School also called EDS or the Day School is most importantly God centered. We promote a strong academic program in a child-centered, traditional setting. The children attend chapel and receive lessons daily. In addition to core academic subjects in Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, the students attend enrichment classes in Music, Computer, Library, Physical Education, Spanish and Nature Trail.
In addition to our academic program the Day School offers its students the convenience of after school activities such as; Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and basketball, volleyball, and track. We also have a strong Chess program, Coding Club and a Cheerleading Squad.
The Day School is fully accredited by and is in good standing with the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools (SAES). We are also accredited by the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission (TEPSAC), a division of the Texas Education Agency. We have a state-licensed Day Care after school program for the convenience of our families.
The Day School has a key role in the community. We strongly believe that service to others is an important part of who we are. Our service projects include a monthly service project to support a local elementary school (Skinner Elementary).
Most importantly the Day School is a school where you will find God’s presence. We will continue to strive to be the best school in Brownsville meeting our students’ needs spiritually, intellectually and academically.
