Lower School Admissions Checklist

We believe in the importance of a deep connection with the natural world and the importance of play for children. The Lower School, housed in the breathtaking, state-of-the-art McCausland Lower School, offers our students an unparalleled experience to easily access Wissahickon for exploration, observation, and content-focused work.
