Perkiomen School

Private Boarding School – Pennsburg , Pennsylvania

Perkiomen School is a traditional and structured co-educational college preparatory boarding and day school. Founded by a descendant of a Schwenkfelder immigrant in 1875, Perkiomen School has a philosophy focused on creating an effective environment for individual growth and for the development of personal ethics.

Perkiomen is a world community. Perkiomen admits students in grades five through twelve and offers a year for postgraduate students. We embrace diversity, and actively pursue students and faculty from many neighborhoods of our own country and the world.

As a school, Perkiomen strives to develop individuals who appreciate learning and who work to acquire the skills necessary to learn. Perkiomen works to create an awareness in its students that education is a lifelong pursuit. We help our students focus on ideals which are purposeful, reasonable, consistent with traditional values, and spiritually balanced. We seek to nurture common sense, a sense of justice, a sense of honor, a sense of responsibility, and a sense of humor.
