The Perkiomen community inspires students to risk becoming their best. We are a boarding and day school dedicated to fostering a diverse and multi-talented student body. We challenge each other to work and rework in pursuit of excellence each and every day. We afford the best of a liberal arts education while cultivating entrepreneurial spirit in our students. We promote active inquiry and problem-solving, making education relevant and exportable to a future we cannot predict. Perkiomen School’s students embrace global citizenship. Our students join together from different countries, races, socio-economic backgrounds, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, and world views to be the heart of campus life. Our faculty members are collectively accomplished in academics, athletics, and the arts, with a desire for continuing education and a passion for mentoring students.
Perkiomen School provides a range of opportunities for students to explore their interests and the world around them. We are an inviting, safe home that nurtures a sense of curiosity, physical well-being, and belonging on our 180-acre campus.
The arts are a vital part of Perkiomen School. For the 2020-21 school year, we seek to re-shape our theater program to be safe and engaging. Our current plan is to use our entire campus as a stage. Maximizing on the safety of out-of-doors, scenes will be rehearsed and performed in venues that make sense for the production. All performances will be recorded and released via watch parties to maximize viewing. Additionally, we want this school year to be an opportunity for those new to theater to give it a try. In addition to three theatrical performances, in the fall we will offer an improvisation troupe that will have two opportunities to perform. Finally, our mission statement says we “inspire students to risk becoming their best.” We are seeking an intern who will add innovation and inspiration to our program.
