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.

Our Campuses

We are a family of families — one school with three unique campuses. We serve over 350 students from Philadelphia, the greater Delaware valley, and around the world. Because who you learn with matters, we are committed to education that crosses socio-economic and cultural boundaries to grow student leaders who will seek the wholeness and prosperity of the city. Our family is beautiful, diverse, and joyful. Explore our three campuses and envision your place in our family.

Our mission is to train students' minds, disciple students' hearts, and bring light to the city—one child at a time.
