Penn Charter rests on a sprawling, green 47-acre campus in the East Falls section of Philadelphia.
The Upper, Middle and Lower school divisions operate in their own buildings, each of which is designed to meet students' academic and developmental needs. Chigwell Close, the open space between the Lower School and the main building, is an outdoor classroom, a place where students can learn science, write poetry, play,explore or simply enjoy a peaceful interlude.
Student players and performers have access to resources that match their talents.
With a total of four buildings designated for sports, Penn Charter offers athletes six grass playing fields, one synthetic turf field, one all-weather track, seven tennis courts, ten squash courts, four basketball courts, one climbing wall and one swimming pool.
The David L. Kurtz Performing Arts Center which opened in 2010 is a LEED certified building with a green roof and features a 650-seat theater, hydraulic orchestra pit lift, sprung dance floor, choral room and performace studio, instrumental room with four individual practice rooms, recording studio, scene shop and costume room.
