School Description

Located less than an hour from historic Philadelphia, The Phelps School’s small student body ensures intimate class sizes and a low teacher to student ratio of only 1:4. Phelps offers a variety of learning opportunities including health/fitness classes, earth/space sciences and a new exciting class in Python programming!

The campus’ academic and administrative buildings are located a short walk from the dormitories, while athletes have access to facilities such as a new athletic center, soccer and lacrosse fields, all-weather tennis courts, a running track, a basketball court, a fitness room, a wrestling ring, a weight room, volleyball courts, and a roller hockey rink.

The 2015 Phelps School basketball team won the PAISSA state championship. The school’s new athletic center features a 500-seat competition gymnasium.
Students interested in the arts can take courses such as ceramics and studio art.

Boarding students at Phelps stay in one of seven dormitories located on campus. Members of the staff and faculty live in the dorms as house parents, and older students assist as proctors. On the weekends, students travel to places such as the zoo, professional sports games, and college fairs.
