Mission

The Phelps School is dedicated to a personalized education for the boy who seeks success academically, personally, and socially. Our first obligation is to create a caring, sensitive climate which emphasizes the positive in every situation. The student’s educational program is planned in terms of his individual capacity, ability, needs and interests. This philosophy of dedication to the total development of each boy is accentuated by the disciplined atmosphere, small classes, and daily tutorial support. The environment is consistent, supportive, structured and combined with challenge, care and honesty. The Phelps School is concerned with emphasizing the articulation and inculcation of personal moral values as an important part of our mission: educating the heart as well as the mind and body.
