Applying to Penn Charter

The common entry points at Penn Charter are pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, 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 and encourages applications from current families as well as children of alumni and members of the Religious Society of Friends.

Apply online – it is an efficient process and more than 95 percent of our applicants chose that method last year. 

For your convenience, all of the supporting documents for the application process are available by download from the list below. If you would prefer paper copies of these materials, please contact the Admissions Office by email or by telephone at 215-844-3460 ext. 103.
