Welcome to sch
SCH Admissions is hosting regular information sessions online and small group sessions in-person to discuss the admissions timeline, be introduced to students & faculty, and dive into how SCH differs as an academic platform that prepares the next generation for the world beyond SCH.
We're also offering the opportunity to schedule 1:1 admissions conversations or tours with the Admissions Directors specific to your division of interest: Early Childhood (coed, 18 months to 4 years), Lower (single-sex, Pre-K to 4th), Middle (single-sex, 5th to 8th), or Upper School (coed, 9th to 12th). Contact us to get started. NOTE: masks are currently recommended for all in-person events, tours, and sessions as stated by the CDC and City of Philadelphia Public Health guidelines.
Early Childhood Center at SCH is all about the child's love for exploration, curiosity, and wonder. Created under the Reggio Emilia philosophy, ECC is all about child-centered, teacher-guided education in a relationship-driving environment. Our littlest are fortunate to have the backdrop of SCH at their doorstep, allowing them to navigate the child-sized playground 30 steps away, or venture out in their WonderWagons for a day at the edge of the Wissahickon Woods on the other side of our 62-acre campus.
We believe in the importance of a deep connection with the natural world and the importance of play for children. The single-sex Lower School (Pre-K to Grade 4), housed in the breathtaking, state-of-the-art McCausland Lower School, offers our students an unparalleled experience. From exploring the accessible Wissahickon in our backyard to New Media tools in our Maker Space, children have the opportunity to develop an understanding of their strengths and affinities, the courage to try new things, and the resilience to try again.
Wondering what makes SCH different? Step into our single-sex Middle School (Grades 5-8), see the energy of our teachers, and learn more about the unique programs our students love. Whether students are interested in robotics, the orchestra, creative writing, US history, geometry, digital publishing, or social entrepreneurship, there is an avenue to explore your passion. Our talented faculty are here to ensure classes are engaging and hands-on with students at the center of every activity.
At SCH, our coed Upper School students (Grades 9-12) are challenged to grow as individuals and leaders. Guided by our experienced college counseling staff, students build strong academic resumes that speak to their strengths and earn them entrance into the nation’s top colleges and universities. Come visit our trademarked Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) program, Robotics and Engineering, Arts and New Media, and championship-winning athletics—all housed on our 62-acre campus located on the edge of Philly.
As an institution with a 160-year history of educating young people, we are of course committed to fostering the time-honored fundamentals of intellectual rigor, critical analysis, and thoughtful evaluation. But we are also committed to developing young students of character and self-knowledge who can hold their compass north while navigating an ever-changing world.
