Seize the Moment, Plan for the Future

We must simultaneously develop and protect our beautiful, 47-acre campus, melding existing space with the changing needs of our academic program. We imagine a campus strategically updated to improve practical issues like watershed management and parking, while also expanding playing fields and outdoor learning areas.

We can see a revitalized landscape with spaces for outdoor exploration, observation and learning. Our students will learn to be better stewards of the environment in which we all live and learn, even as we strengthen our campus infrastructure.

Penn Charter's campus master plan realigns athletics facilities on the eastern side of campus, from the scoreboard on Maguire Field across School House Lane to the far boundary of the Strawbridge Campus. On the other side of campus, the plan calls for the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools to unite in a green, pedestrian-oriented Academic Village.

Said Head of School Darryl J. Ford: "Our vision for our campus transformation combines the three divisions in a vibrant Academic Village — a vibrant learning community. We are not done until we achieve that."
