Amplifying Athletics and Wellness

Our Penn Charter student-athletes live out long-embedded community values each season: courage and commitment, sacrifice and teamwork, the balance of mind and body that propels them to lead.

How much farther can we see?

We can see world-class athletes come off the field or out of the pool better prepared to adapt to the world they inherit and influence.

From Ruben Amaro OPC ’83 to Matt Ryan OPC ’03 to Reese Whitley OPC ’18, our athletic legacy is strong: But what does our future hold?

We can see a fully integrated campus model that backs our long-spoken commitment to balancing academics, athletics, and the arts.

Our vision for the new Penn Charter Academic Village reinforces the interconnectedness of the 3 As to students every day and for decades to come.

Viewing campus from Schoolhouse Lane, imagine seeing our new Athletic Center on the left, our main academic building in the center, and the David L. Kurtz Center for Performing Arts on the right—a unified front line representing the ongoing vision and newest expression of William Penn Charter School.

We seek to raise more than $16 million to make the new athletic center a reality, to add a new regulation-size turf field, and to provide of-the-moment conditioning equipment for our students and best-in-field training for our coaching staff.
