Risk becoming your best.

Risk being your best every day at Perk. In preparing individuals for success in college and life, we nurture common sense, a sense of justice, a sense of honor, a sense of responsibility and a sense of humor.

The Perkiomen School is a traditional coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school where structure, support, self-discipline, and integrity are valued. Perkiomen admits students in grades six through twelve and offers a year for postgraduate students.

Perk is located in Greater Philadelphia. Within walking distance of campus 50 shops, restaurants, banks, and salons are available for students. The Lehigh Valley is to the north (Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton), Philadelphia is 49 miles to our south, and New York City is only 104 miles east. Perkiomen is convenient to some of the nation’s finest cultural and educational institutions, great shopping and entertainment, and beautiful countryside with skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, and much more.

In August, Perk will host a Raspberry Pi camp for a small group of students. What is a Raspberry Pi? It is a tiny computer that can be programmed to do a variety of things. The Pi is inexpensive and easy to program. The desire of the Raspberry Pi Foundation is to teach the basics of programming to a greater audience.
Perkiomen's new Entrepreneurship program will launch in the fall. The coursework and project work are outlined, and the dreams and hard work of the Taskforce are about to take shape. Headmaster Mark A. Devey has tapped Science Department Chair Shaun Yorey to lead the new program. Mindy Irven will step into the role of Science Department chair.
In the past few years, Perk's cross country and track teams success have exploded. Coach Paige Longstreth used to say "her team's regular workout was another team's punishment." A few extra laps or sprints were a punishment, not an inspirational challenge. But, the running program is transformed, and the number of students who now consider themselves to be serious runners is impressive. These runners are putting in extra miles on the weekends and before school.
