Join us at our next Open House: the Alternative Education Forum on Thurs, March 23rd at 6:00 PM.

Real Life. Real Learning.

At the Philly Free School, students ages 4-19 explore freely, think critically, and work collaboratively, across ages, to govern themselves and their school. Through self-initiated activities, students learn the delicate balance between individual freedom and community responsibility. Along the way, they develop the internal resources to navigate, assess, and utilize the information and tools needed to thrive in modern society.
