About

Perkiomen is the only college preparatory school in the Mid-Atlantic that balances the search for a fulfilling life with the demands of the new economy.

With a close-knit community that celebrates diversity, ambition, and empathy, Perkiomen's innovative educational model gives students a distinct competitive edge in their academics, careers, and lives. Here, we create possibilities because our community is a celebration of individuals, our space is transformative by design, and our impact is focused on the future. 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 supportive environment enables our students to discover what they need to thrive, become strong self-advocates, stand up for their beliefs, and envision their futures. Each of our students is empowered to make positive change and try new things. Our participatory culture demonstrates both respect for individual affinities and the rewards of engaging within a larger community.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

Perkiomen School’s motto is "Solvitur vivendo," which translates to "it is solved by living." We believe that experience is the best teacher and that the challenges of modern life are only solved through engaged and thoughtful living. At Perkiomen, our Institutes guide students to interact with and apply the knowledge and skills they learn. Not only do students acquire a deep understanding of the topics they explore, but they also demonstrate heightened engagement resulting from choice and agency in the topics and methods of education. Preparing students today to thrive in the context of the future requires a bold and forward-facing approach to learning.

What is your mission statement?

The Perkiomen community inspires students to risk becoming their best.
