The City School at Spruce Hill
The City School's mission is to train students' minds, disciple their hearts and bring light to the city -- one child at a time. For 35 years, our commitment to this mission has guided us as we prepare students to thrive in school, in college, at home and in life.
Points Of Pride
Our five core commitments are to Jesus, Shalom, to the City, to Excellence and to Accessibility.
Jesus: We strive to demonstrate the love and grace of Jesus in all we do.
Shalom: Being in right relationship with God, ourselves, others and creation
The City: We view the city as a classroom, taking full advantage of Philadelphia's world-class institutes of art, science and history.
Excellence and Accessibility: We believe an excellent education should be accessible to students across the spectrum of academic abilities, financial backgrounds and faiths.
We desire to make an excellent, private Christian education accessible for students in the city. If your child has an IEP, it must be submitted and reviewed for approval before submitting an application, since our support services are limited.
