Poughkeepsie Day School

This is how Poughkeepsie Day School families describe our dynamic pre-k through grade 12 program and close-knit community. Be part of our distinctive 75-year legacy, where a passion for learning and living and a fi rst-rate faculty make for a 21st century education that is second to none; where writing and critical thinking—rather than rote memorization and teaching to the test—are at the heart of what we do; and where 100% of graduating seniors are admitted to a variety of selective colleges each year, including the Class of 2010’s Cooper Union, Johns Hopkins and Stanford.

Our student body comprises 300+ individuals hailing from 50 communities throughout the Hudson Valley, with 24% identifying as students of color and approximately 30% receiving fi nancial aid. They thrive within a culture that celebrates and nurtures the special strengths and talents of each child; fosters high achievement through a love of learning; and models respect, responsibility and integrity.

Come visit our beautiful 35-acre campus, including historic Kenyon House, James Earl Jones Theater and recently-renovated 40,000 square-foot classroom building with modern science labs and full sized gymnasium. Discover how Poughkeepsie Day School connects joy to learning and why every day at PDS is amazing.
