Since 1875, The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania has been empowering its students – boarding and day, grades 6-12 and PG – to risk becoming their personal best. Perkiomen’s comprehensive curriculum, which includes competitive athletic teams for all students, a broad fine arts department, 30 AP courses, and project-based learning, provides students the opportunity to take control of their future with a truly individualized educational experience.

New in 2016-17 is Perk’s Entrepreneur Institute and dedicated Innovation Center, an additional educational track for any student interested in applying their liberal arts education through real-life practice, resulting in a Certificate in Entrepreneurship at graduation. The Center includes multiple 3-D printers, a Mac Lab, classrooms, conference rooms, and boardrooms for use in graphic design, marketing, coding, engineering, and 10 other cross-listed courses.

Small classes that ensure every student is known, a dedicated office of college counseling, an exemplary faculty that lives on campus, a global community that includes domestic and international students from 30 countries, and a culture of encouragement allows students to thrive while taking risks in learning and achievement.
