The Philosophy Day School was founded in 1994 by parents who wanted their children to have the finest education possible combined with the benefits they themselves were experiencing as students of The School of Practical Philosophy. (www.practicalphilosophy.org)
It finds its genesis in the Ark Nursery and Kindergarten established in 1975 and expanded into the Abraham Lincoln School in 1994.
Philosophy Day School, our new name, more clearly acknowledges the principles and origins of the school.
The Philosophy Day School is part of an international network of schools that for over thirty years has been providing and refining a similar education.
The schools share the belief that a rich academic education is one that emphasizes a love for the pursuit of wisdom and incorporates character development as an essential ingredient in the educational process.
