140 M-Audio digital pianos for composing and recording music in a hybrid learning model. 

30 registrations for CoderZ League, a virtual, international robotics competition.

500+ cones, markers, tennis balls and other equipment for Middle School physical education classes that focus on conditioning, mobility, hand-eye coordination and fun!

20 high-resolution pan-tilt-zoom cameras and microphones in Middle and Upper School classrooms to facilitate hybrid and concurrent teaching models.

16 tents to maximize outdoor learning spaces for each division.

24 people hired as the teacher support team and 6 part time employees transitioned to full time to enhance the delivery of the Penn Charter Pre-K-12 academic program on campus and online.
