Student Life

At The City School, student life is about more than academics. While we are a college-preparatory academy with a strong emphasis on cultivating our students as lifelong learners, our students are more to us than scholars-in-training. They are spiritual, emotional, social, physical creatures with a diversity of passions and talents. We commit to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience that explores their interests beyond academia.

The beauty of our community is lived out in a million big and little ways every day, and you can read about some of our campus-specific activities and adventures on each campus page. These pages will cover whole-school initiatives to enrich student life at The City School.

Our growing athletics offerings, innovative approach to the arts and S.T.E.A.M., and nurturing Biblical counseling program are a few of the ways we invest deeply in the students entrusted to our care.

ONE CHILD AT A TIME—The City School is a Pre-K to Grade 12 Christian school in the heart of Philadelphia. We believe an excellent education should be accessible for families in the city.
