Welcome from Head of School
The beautiful Phelps campus lies in a quiet borough just 22 miles west of Philadelphia and about two hours from New York City and Washington, DC.
Phelps is more than a place for boarding and day students to prepare for college. It’s a way of life. Teachers and students truly care about their work together and about each other. The environment is positive, productive, and personal.
At Phelps, boys feel accepted. They grow in confidence and compassion as they learn alongside international classmates, form new friendships, explore new interests, and discover new possibilities.
