Welcome to The Phelps School and Founders Hall! Our goal is to  provide a safe, comfortable atmosphere in the dormitory that  promotes learning, friendship and fun. We will do our best to  make  your son’s transition to boarding school life as seamless as  possible. This letter provides some basic information about the  dorm and the best ways to contact your son.

There is a telephone in the lobby of Founders Hall which is shared by all the residents. The phone number is (610) 540-0167. The phone is shut off during study hall which takes place Monday through Thursday, 8:15 PM to 9:45 PM.

The Phelps School Student Parent Handbook is an essential resource for information on school policies and procedures. Please take the time to review the handbook, but feel free to contact us with any questions of concerns that remain unanswered or unclear.

Please also review the Parents’ Guide to Residential Life found on the Housing homepage for details about when and how to contact your son, ideal visiting hours, addressing mail, and leaving campus.

Finally, remember that theft can occur anywhere, and even though we are a small community, boys should be responsible with all of their belongings. Each boy must bear the sole responsibility for the safekeeping and care of all personal items kept on campus. Each student is also responsible for damage to his room or other school property. We thank you for your assistance in these matters and for the privilege of working with your son.
