Our Values

The Phelps Vision

Students come to Phelps from around the world.  Their gifts and talents, like their personalities and backgrounds, are diverse and enriching.  At Phelps we value that individuality above all else. Each student faces his own challenges and sets his own goals.

Talented international students improve their TOEFL scores.  Gifted athletes get recruited.  Bright boys who learn differently discover their true capabilities.

Courses of study are personally tailored.  Support for learning is consistent and effective.  Most important, the sense of Phelps brotherhood — in dorm life, the dining hall, weekend activities, and sports — is pervasive, genuine, and life-changing.

We are a diverse community committed to bringing out the best in each other.  We strive to uphold fundamental principles, not just follow rules.  Together, we affirm our shared POWER by thinking Positively, serving Others, seeking Wisdom, pursuing Excellence, and living Responsibly.
