White Clay Learning Center offers an academically challenging and meaningful education.
We achieve this by utilizing a custom-created, socially and environmentally responsible curriculum, which we call unit-themes.
We believe that it is an essential tool in creating excitement, excellence and love in many degrees, in the learning environment of our school.
We integrate this meaningful curriculum with our children's experiences.
White Clay Learning Center is an independent, Quaker private school located in West Grove, Pa, serving students in Kindergarten through eighth grade (K-8).
Our small class size approach to education reflects a philosophy that combines the best of home schooling and a classroom approach to education.
It is our mission at White Clay Learning Center to teach each child as a unique individual and create a learning program, which will meet their needs and allow them to thrive in their intellectual, emotional and social development, nourish each student’s spiritual growth by reflecting on our abilities and celebrating our differences, empower our children to help make a difference in our community today and throughout their lives.
