The Campaign

By the Light of Our Charter How Far Can We See? Our campaign began quietly in 2013, backed by school leaders, OPCs and parents who share the goals of our Strategic Vision and joined together to create exciting changes now and for years to come.

When the campaign went public on Oct. 20, 2017, we had raised $50 million toward an ambitious goal of $75 million. Together we carry forward William Penn's legacy and advance our vision.

We See

It's personal. An OPC's experience. A parent's dream. A teacher's sense of purpose. PC people tell their stories.

Our Vision

Not mere progress, not incremental gains. A flashpoint of new invention.

Re-Engineering the Academic Village

A new Lower School will reshape learning for our youngest students and unite pre-K to 12 students in a vibrant community, an academic village.

Building on Brilliant Teaching

Salary support, benefits, and opportunities to advance knowledge and teaching practice build a faculty of lifelong learners excited to collaborate with students.

Amplifying Athletics and Wellness

Facilities for physical education, health, sports and training will promote fitness, enhance performance, and fortify the PC athletic legacy.

Extending Our Public Purpose

Financial aid and the Center for Public Purpose connect us to our foundational Quaker values and create a learning environment and real-world experiences that benefit every student.

Evolving Our Campus Master Plan

With a focus on the environment, new and re-purposed facilities, and a new landscape, will provide for outdoor learning and meet the changing needs of the educational program.

Ensuring the Next Decade

Bold innovation and transformative learning depend on financial sustainability, and the Annual Fund is key.
