The Young Scholars Program


Young Scholars

We’ve been blessed with gifted teachers and a great curriculum so we feel it’s important to share with our community. We’re going into neighborhoods all over Memphis to search for young boys with exceptional potential and offer them a life-changing education. To get the most from this opportunity, students need to start at the beginning — in junior or senior kindergarten — and stay with us until graduation from sixth grade.



We're fully invested in the these boys for eight years. Will you invest with us?

Advancing Our Mission

Strategic Initiatives


Presbyterian Day School strives to glorify God by developing boys in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. (1 Corinthians 10:31 and Luke 2:52)

How can we be even more mindful of our mission? An organization's mission statement often changes to meet the needs of each era, but at Presbyterian Day School, our mission statement has been unchanged since 1949. Our mission is at the heart of our Strategic Initiatives which focus our fund-raising around three core elements: Young Scholars, Teachers, and our Building Boys, Making Men program.
