More than 30 years ago, the Student Education Center was a small tutoring school offering enrichment classes.
From that beginning, our school has become a full-service educational facility.
Although our enrollment has increased with each succeeding year, we have always emphasized the need for small classes, personalized attention, and concern for the student as an individual.
Our goal has been to help students prepare themselves for life in a complex and demanding society.
Formerly Student Education Center, Delaware Valley High School is a small private school located in Center City Philadelphia.
We are proud of the fact that 90 percent of our students have been referred to us by former students.

1984,I graduated in 1984 Ruch Brown was e director, my teachers were Carol Frost and Denise Williams along with Rich. I was kicked out of Goretti and out of control. A friend suggested Student Education Center for my sophomore year. It was exactly the school I needed. I graduated and went on to become a paralegal. I recommend this school to anyone who has a difficult time in everyday mainstream. Good luck.

I was a real piece of work back in my teens. A total mess! Cutting school. Drugs, you name it I got messed up into it. It got so bad that my parents paid a small fortune to get me enrolled at "Student Ed" as we called it back in the early 80s. It was located in the summerton section of philly. on Buselton pike. It was my last chance to have an opportunity to graduate. MR, AND MRS. GREENBLATT! I remember them well. They ran the place with a clear set of simple rules. No drugs. Do your work, show up on time and be respectful of the building , its neighboring businesses and everyone within the school and you too can graduate. Between them and the rest of the teachers ...and the small classes and one on one attention that they gave to each student not just me... it enable me to completely turn my life around. It would have never happened if I didn't attend that school. Long hair, leather jacket, earrings ...and chains hanging from everywhere on me....I Graduated! Straight A"s too! I was about to be expelled from my old high school because of all sorts of bad things and there I was, collecting my diploma! I hope Mr and Mrs. G are still around and somehow are able to read this. Thank you! I can't tell you how much of an impact you had on the direction of my life in an otherwise "going nowhere fast" junky kid. You treated me with respect and looked past my tough guy exterior. Saying Thank you just doesn't do it justice. I raised 4 kids and each of them hear the story of their crazy dad and his turn around at Studen Ed.

I loved this school. Mrs. Matti was the principal and Mrs. K was our front desk lady. Had an amazing time and learned a lot!

I was a student with Mr. & Mrs. G! They saved me during a time of disarray and taught me that I decided how my life was going to end up. Their love & nurturing gave me the skills to become successful in society, a loving mother, devoted wife and with excellent work history. I don't know if they are still kicking it, but I want them to know I think about them and my time there often. I thank my father for knowing you would help me, I was at Bustelton Ave. I am a very successful business women! Thank you!!
