What is Great Day? 

A day to celebrate all that we love about Penn Charter and to support our school. Our community will come together to tell stories of a favorite teacher, a joyful moment seeing your child thrive, a raucous bus ride home from a big sports win or a proud achievement from your years with PC. 

As you fondly recall Old Penn Charter, help power the student experience at Penn Charter today and plan for the future with a gift to the Annual Fund.
