Why? Your Child Is Made for Excellence

Welcome to The City School!

Our community is a special place where your child will be known and loved while challenged by our rigorous curriculum and encouraged to grow in wisdom and grace. We are intentional about creating a diverse community of learners, so we embrace students of various cultures, socio-economic status and racial backgrounds, learning to appreciate the differences in others.

Our excellent and nurturing faculty are qualified in the successful development of children, while seeking to cultivate the passions of our students.  At the same time our students value one another, holding each other accountable to their best selves and develop lasting friendships.  As a Christian school we teach Jesus and integrate biblical principles into our curriculum, with a goal of accomplishing Shalom-right relationship with God, ourselves, others and creation.  that’s why to us, “Who You Learn With Matters”, so explore our program and learn more about how we can partner with your family.

Admissions Process

Consists of 4 steps:

  • Submitting an online application, including the non-refundable $75 application fee per applicant and accompanying documents
  • Admissions Testing (For Pre-k & K it is more of a developmental assessment)
  • Family Interview where the parents and student/s meet with the principal
  • Admissions Decision

When submitting an admissions application you are creating an account with TCS through our parent portal where you can upload and complete any requested documents. The quicker you upload the items needed the quicker you move through the admissions process.  Mrs. Jean Marie Staico, Admissions Manager will contact you via email to let you know what is needed throughout the process. Click here to complete an application or contact us at admissions@cityschool.org or call 215-792-6224 with questions.  We look forward to welcoming you to our school family.
