Admissions Process & Timeline
The common entry points at Penn Charter are pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, fifth, sixth, seventh and ninth grades, making these the best times to apply; new students are admitted to other grades if spaces are available.
As a school committed to diversity, Penn Charter welcomes students of every race, religion, socioeconomic status, ethnic background, gender, and sexual orientation. We encourage applications from current families as well as children of alumni and members of the Religious Society of Friends.
