At Perkiomen “students are inspired to risk being their best.” Our mission is carried out through a residential program that instills the importance of being a valuable member of a close-knit community, an academic program that provides access to 36 Honors and AP courses, The Learning Center, supportive study halls and conference periods, and an after school program that encourages students to try something new -- from our nationally recognized baseball program, to “varsity” art, to theater and music, and Model United Nations.
At Perkiomen, our motto: Solvitur Vivendo (Learning through experience) guides us as we inspire students.
Whether Model U.N.
students competing at U.
Penn., band members performing off-campus, or students interacting with the "Burgermeister" in Hildesheim, Germany, active learning is a hallmark of a Perkiomen education.

School Reviews

  • Recommended August 19, 2013 - It has been a number of years since I graduated from Perkiomen School but one thing is still the same, quality & caring about education. Students are taught academics as well as life skills, that assure future success in whatever endeavor is undertaken. Perk is the whole package and I highly recommend this school. - Posted by Student/Alumni
