The Class of 1970 returned to campus in October to belatedly celebrate its 50th reunion and dedicate a new space in the Graham.
Our campus transformation is driven by plans for a new lower school designed especially for the way we teach.
The superior facilities of the William A. Graham IV OPC '58 Athletics & Wellness Center – opened in September 2021 –support physical education, health, sports and training to promote fitness and fortify the PC athletic legacy.
Our campus transformation will preserve existing buildings, repurpose vacant spaces, open new spaces for outdoor learning, and build on the ecology of these 47 acres.
Transformation Is Happening!
The design process for Penn Charter's fabulous new lower school involved faculty and administrators working with architects over several years to imagine a new space for innovative teaching and exciting learning. View the renderings of the new building.
Graham Athletics & Wellness Center Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
The Class of 2022 joined William A. Graham IV OPC '58 in front of the Graham Athletics & Wellness Center — the Graham for short — for a ceremonial ribbon-cutting marking the official opening of the new building. Cheers from students and teachers rose into the clear blue sky as they thanked Bill Graham for his gift that made the building possible. In a brief video message shown to students Friday morning, Frances Graham, his wife, predicted that students will enjoy the building so much they won't want to leave it.
