Lower School Handbook

Welcome to the Penn Charter Lower School. We extend a warm welcome to Penn Charter to both new and returning families. Entrance into the Lower School marks the beginning of what we hope will be a lifelong relationship with Penn Charter and Quaker education. Our mission directs us to inspire students to be thinkers, collaborators, innovators and leaders. We educate students to live lives that make a difference. The Lower School is designed to support students and families in taking the beginning steps on this most meaningful of journeys.  

The Lower School Handbook has been prepared for new parents as a reference for information about daily life and activities in Lower School, as well as an introduction to the parents’ organization, which we call the Parent Community. The topics included in the handbook are listed alphabetically below. If you have questions, please contact the Lower School office at extension 118.
