History

At Perkiomen “students are inspired to risk being their best.” Our mission is carried out through a residential program that instills the importance of being a valuable member of a close-knit community, an academic program that provides access to 36 Honors and AP courses, The Learning Center, study halls and conference periods, and an after school program that encourages students to try something new -- from our nationally recognized baseball program, to “varsity” art, to theater and music, and Model United Nations. At Perkiomen, our motto: Solvitur Vivendo (Learning through experience) guides us as we inspire students. Whether Model U.N. students competing at U. Penn., band members performing off-campus, or students interacting with the "Burgermeister" in Hildesheim, Germany, active learning is a hallmark of a Perkiomen education.

Considering Financial Aid?

Schools administer their financial aid individually. The keys to seeking financial aid are:

  1. Planning, including dedicating time to sit-down and work through the paperwork and process
  2. Communicating with the admission and financial aid officers at the school
  3. Completing the paperwork and forms early and accurately (forms and paperwork can differ between schools)
  4. Meeting the financial aid deadline (it's early).
