William Penn Charter School

Master Plan & Implementation

Philadelphia, PA

The William Penn Charter School is a Quaker, co-educational, college preparatory day school currently educating 960 boys and girls from Pre-Kindergarten through the Twelfth grade. As the oldest Quaker school in the state of Pennsylvania, Penn Charter’s legacy is founded upon the belief that there is ‘that of God in every person.’ To build upon this legacy, the leadership of Penn Charter has embraced the charge to do more than prepare students to thrive in the 21st century; but rather, prepare graduates that will make a difference. Reshaping both the curriculum and the campus are identified as part of the Penn Charter Strategic Plan as necessary for preparing students for life in a complex and changing world. EwingCole began the implementation of the first phase of the Campus Master Plan which includes the following sequence of improvements: relocation of the Baseball Field to the northwest side of Schoolhouse Lane – Strawbridge site; construction of a new Athletics & Wellness Center; demolition of the existing Dooney Field House; and construction of a new Lower School.
