The Phelps School is a hidden gem located in Chester County, PA, offering truly individualized academics for day and boarding students to students from all over the world, from grades 6-12. Phelps celebrates how each boy is unique and dynamic, caring about the whole student and offering a wide range of classes; ranging from small academic support classes of 4 to challenging AP level courses. Parents and students alike find their ideal level of comfort and support at The Phelps School and find that every boy can grow, each their potential, and learn their own way. This caring environment of living and working like a family are apparent the moment you walk onto the school's picturesque, quaint campus.
I have worked as a teacher, dorm parent, and coach at The Phelps School for two years. The thing that I have noticed and enjoyed every day in that time is the school's commitment to providing students with an environment in which they can have success. Due to small class sizes, not only are students able to push themselves to achieve in ways they might not have thought possible, but they are able to form lasting connections with any of the wonderful faculty and staff that work there. The best part of my job has been seeing how the Phelps experience helps mold willing students into diligent young men who thrive in their academic endeavors and are prepared for the challenges they may meet in the future.
