The Philly Free School ( is hosting an Open House on Thursday October 24th from 6-8pm to give prospective families an opportunity to see the school, meet staff, students, and current parents, learn about the Sudbury model, and ask questions. You can RSVP using the form attached, emailing, or

calling 215-218-9586.


At the Philly Free School, students ages 4-19 explore freely, think critically, and work collaboratively,  across ages, to govern themselves and their school. There are no classes, grades, tests, or prescribed curriculum. Through self-initiated activities, students learn the delicate balance between individual  freedom and community responsibility. Students and staff each have one vote in a democratic system that governs the school, from creating and enforcing rules, to spending money and hiring and firing staff. Along the way, students develop the internal resources to navigate, assess, and utilize the  information and tools needed to thrive in modern society. Located in Graduate Hospital, the Philly Free School is a private, independent school with one of the lowest tuition rates in the city, and also offers year-round enrollment.
