From the Head of School

GreggThompson-CROPThe goal of the FPD educational process is to impact our world by preparing our students for our nation’s finest universities. Achieving this goal requires a curriculum which exposes students to a thoughtful sequence of study that builds a foundation of knowledge in each discipline and encourages thoughtful analysis and application. As a Christ-centered, college-preparatory school, we offer an academically challenging curriculum underpinned by sound Christian principles. These same principles guide the administration of the school.

At First Presbyterian Day School we seek not only to develop the mind of each student but to mold character as well. We unite with parents in their efforts to challenge their children to take responsibility for independent learning and thinking, to develop godly discernment and the resolve to make tough decisions for what is right and good, and to grow in maturity toward accepting responsibility for their actions. We believe that tomorrow’s leaders will possess not only bright minds but also sound character.
