Highlights of our 62-acre campus

  • Opening its doors to students in the fall of 2019, the McCausland Lower School is a state-of-the-art facility just steps away from the Wissahickon Watershed and an idyllic setting for SCH Academy’s signature Outdoor Program and “boots-on” learning.
  • Our customized, award-winning, 1,600-square-foot Engineering and Robotics Lab—in a Gold LEED-certified science center—challenges students to explore the process of design and fabrication of complex objects and systems with laser cutters, CAD/CAM, a CNC milling machine, and 3D printers, including a Makerbot Replicator.
  • In the Lower School Maker Space, our youngest students have their own dedicated spaces to build, create, experiment, and explore the basic principles of physics and engineering through play.
  • Our VidCast Studio exposes students of all ages to a vast array of technology and new media tools, including green screens, Apple workstations, SMART Boards, video and photography equipment, and editing and gaming software.
  • Our athletic facilities include the 52,000-square-foot Vare Field House, complete with squash courts, a rowing tank, fitness center, dance studio, and basketball courts, as well as four additional gymnasiums and a new outdoor athletic complex that includes two artificial turf fields, new track, new baseball field, new outdoor tennis courts, new sports pavilion, and new stadium.
  • Two squash facilities with 10 international squash courts house our nationally ranked squash teams.
  • Close to SEPTA’s St. Martin’s Station and a 15-minute walk from the SEPTA  bus, our campus is located in charming and historic Chestnut Hill.
