Why Perkiomen?

At Perkiomen, we know that experience is the best teacher, and that the challenges of life can only be solved by digging in, taking part, and pushing through. Our students learn to take calculated risks and to create value wherever they go.

Our close knit, caring, accomplished faculty create a highly participatory learning environment that encourages students to be courageous. Equally impactful is our culture of gratitude and joy. We are all teachers and learners, celebrating differences and supporting each other’s well-being, through everyday tasks and in defining moments.

In this boarding and day environment, we all feel welcomed. Faculty and students engage and develop meaningful mentorships. And, students find lasting friendships in our globally diverse community.

What we learn today must prepare our students for tomorrow. With a strong liberal arts foundation and future-focused innovative education, we prepare our students for college and the challenges of a new economy.

Our son has attended Perkiomen School for two years and I can honestly say it was the best decision for us. With the small class sizes, his teachers know him well and are readily available when he has questions. When the pandemic came, this school handled the uncertainty with excellence. They have clear plans backed by professional recommendations and communicate those plans to parents regularly. We couldn’t be more pleased, so pleased that we have begun the admissions process for our daughter, as well.
