This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Providing lifelong knowledge through transformative experiences, 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 in grades 6–12 and post-graduates a competitive edge in their academics, careers and lives.

The Institutes at Perkiomen School, with a focus on artificial intelligence, design, entrepreneurship and medical science, allow students to rigorously apply a liberal arts education. Not only do students acquire a deep understanding of the topics they explore, but they also demonstrate heightened engagement resulting from choice in the topics and methods of their education. In this boarding and day school, all feel welcome. Faculty and students engage and develop mentorships, and students find lasting friendships in a diverse community. Boarding offers learning in and out of the classroom. Students explore their creativity on stage, in the art room or in the Innovation Center. With 42 teams across 20 sports, there is a competitive opportunity for athletes of every skill level.

Three full-time college counselors guide students and families through the college discovery, application and decision process, sending graduates to their right-fit universities.

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.
