Ph.D. Cornell University, M.A. Baylor University, A.B. Baylor University. Appointed 2016.

I’m excited to welcome to you to Palm Beach Day Academy. Our school is a pioneering institution of 95 years with an outstanding legacy of achievement.

Known as the oldest independent school in Florida, Palm Beach Day Academy is the destination for smart, thoughtful and ambitious boys and girls who seek a transformative education, who always strive to achieve more.

With small classes, a strong emphasis on faculty-student interaction and an academic program that emphasizes intellectual rigor along with appropriate support, we help students become thoughtful, critical thinkers and leaders for the future. Our students are passionate about all that they do, inside the classroom and out, and they work and play hard. Our faculty are committed to their teaching, using the latest research and best practices to ensure students are prepared for a life of meaning and purpose. And finally, our two campuses support the work of students and faculty, and also provide a vibrant culture that complements and expands on the knowledge created in our classrooms and labs.

I invite you to experience Palm Beach Day Academy for yourself. Tour one campus or both. See our classes in action. Meet our students and talk with our faculty and staff. I promise you’ll be impressed by what you discover — a community where students take chances, discover their strengths and are excited about what lies ahead.

Come discover the essence of Palm Beach Day Academy!

Warmest regards,
Dr. Edwin P. Gordon
Head of School
