Perkiomen doesn't make you who you are, it is the place where you become who you are meant to be.
There's not a mold to fit.
It is a place where your individual defining qualities are cultivated, nurtured, and applied in the right way.
That's what happens there.

Perkiomen School created a home for its Entrepreneur Institute in the lower level of its historic and handsome Carnegie Library. In the 1960s the lower level housed classrooms, but for the last 20 years it was used only for storage. As the hub of the Entrepreneur Institute, the Innovation Center was a natural fit for this untapped level of Carnegie Library, gifted to the school by one of America’s most influential businessmen, Andrew Carnegie.
Perkiomen committed to bring the space back to life, with the intent to juxtapose the new innovation space with the traditional learning and library space on the first floor of the building. In 2016, Architect Richard Myers, a specialist in additions to older buildings, was brought on to ensure the exterior character of the 100+ year-old library was maintained, while also creating a grand, forward-looking entryway to the maker space. The addition provided the added benefit of providing an accessible entrance to the library.
