Shadow & Tour Days

untitled-58Shadow Days are one of the best ways for students to get a glimpse into what life is really like at The City School. Students will spend a full day attending classes, get to know our teachers, eat lunch with new friends, and get a feel for the beautiful community we’ve built here. We would love to have you join our family.

Shadow days are for upper school students entering grades 6-12 and require parent permission and current school information so that we can provide a letter to school for the days absence. Shadow days will begin in October on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays and you can schedule your date by contacting our Poplar campus office at 215-731-1930 extension 101.  Masks must be worn in the building to participate. In the meantime, register for an open house by clicking the open house tab to the right for an opportunity to speak with our students, parents, teachers and administrators or schedule a tour for one of our campus locations by clicking on the campus link below.

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.
