Secondary School Placement

At St. Peter’s School, we recognize the importance of selecting a secondary school that will best fit the needs of each of our graduates. Our Secondary School Placement Director, Kathy Hadden, works closely with Upper School students and their families to guide them through this critical process.

Our Secondary School Placement program begins with a Secondary School Information Night directed to our current Sixth and Seventh Grade families. Representatives from independent day schools and boarding schools are available to answer questions and share information about their respective schools. Our 2017 Secondary School Information Night was held on Tuesday, April 11th from 6:30 – 8:00 PM in the Theater. Thank you to the following schools for attending: Agnes Irwin, Baldwin, Friends’ Central, Episcopal Academy, Friends Select, George School, Germantown Friends School, La Salle College High School, William Penn Charter, Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, The Shipley School, Merion Mercy Academy, The Phelps School, Pomfret School, St. Joseph’s Preparatory School, Church Farm School, and Westtown School.
