Solebury School

Nestled on a rolling 140-acre campus in the Pennsylvania countryside, Solebury students and faculty pursue learning as an exciting, shared endeavor.
This unique approach to education is not happenstance, but a cornerstone of Solebury`s educational philosophy.
At Solebury, the individual is prized.  To achieve and sustain a vibrant atmosphere in which students are known as individuals, Solebury remains intentionally small.
Our size fosters quality communication among students, teachers, and parents. Solebury students are encouraged to express themselves and to strive for personal excellence, intellectually, artistically, and athletically.
The result is a magical learning environment, characterized by creativity and diversity, and an ethos of cooperative learning between students and teachers.
