Goal 5: Space

Develop and repurpose space to serve the changing needs of the Penn Charter Program and mission.


A 21st century curriculum will require a reconsideration of the Penn Charter campus.

The Strategic Vision calls for a state-of-the-art Lower School. And beyond that?

We are blessed with a 47-acre, green campus in one of the largest cities in the country. The campus offers obvious advantages, including acres of playing fields, and hidden treasures such as the wetlands on the Strawbridge campus. We will develop and repurpose space to fit the needs of a dynamic new curriculum.

And we will:

  • Develop a facilities plan that supports our educational program and is fully integrated with the implementation plan for our Strategic Vision.
  • Create an environmental plan that fosters environmental stewardship and develops systems and processes to ensure all decisions are evaluated in light of their environmental impact, with consideration of affordable and sustainable alternatives.
  • Expand educational opportunities beyond the is 44-acre campus to include off-site learning with academic, cultural and corporate institutions in metropolitan Philadelphia.

Our plan for Penn Charter's future is organized around six goals, each with a set of strategies.
