Attending small-group workshops with literary legends, studying neuropsychology at Johns Hopkins University or initiating partnerships with local nonprofit organizations, at PDS, you are encouraged to immerse yourself fully in areas that interest you — or take a leap and try something new.

We invite you to explore our most distinctive programs listed below and see for yourself all the ways you can write your own story.
