Since 1973, Wyncote Academy has provided a college preparatory education to students who, for a variety of reasons, have not been able to realize their full learning potential. The typical Wyncote student, though of average or above average intelligence, may have experienced some difficulty or discomfort in previous educational settings.
At Wyncote, students receive the support of our caring and talented staff who help foster in each young person the desire for achievement and the development of positive relationships with staff and peers. We pride ourselves on our flexibility and creativity, and respond to the strengths and needs of each student through a variety of unique educational programs and classes such as art, music, outdoor leadership and international travel.Apply To Wyncote
Wyncote offers a traditional curriculum within an alternative education system for high school students who are better-suited to a less conventional school environment. The curriculum follows traditional guidelines in order to provide ample preparation for post-high school study, while the learning process follows a unique hands-on approach known as the “experiential learning” model.
The flexibility of our program allows staff to respond to a host of opportunities within the Philadelphia community. Trips to the city’s theaters, museums, ethnic neighborhoods, special events and historical sights enrich the classroom experiences. Regular visits from members of Philadelphia’s cultural community also add life to the classroom curriculum.Learn More About Our Curriculum
International Education Opportunities works with the international students and their families to find the best housing option for each student, either in a residential, “Academy House” setting with other international students or in a homestay with an American family.
