Why Solebury

  • Because of Solebury School's unwavering commitment to its core values. We have remained a small school because we deeply believe in the value of all members of the community knowing each other and the benefits this has for individuals as well as the school as a whole.
  • Because students are engaged in a challenging curriculum while being encouraged to maintain a balance in their lives. Ninety-eight percent of our graduates not only go to college, but are excited to continue to study and grow.
  • Because it is a place where teachers and students spend time together beyond the classroom - discussing material from classes, chatting about the world, planning a club's next project, eating lunch together, or tossing a frisbee between periods. The relationships this time together fosters broader and deeper learning. 

At Solebury School, I was able to meet outstanding people - fellow students, teachers, coaches, and administrators - who have challenged and encouraged me. These are people I will always admire and will work hard to keep in my life. They have all given me the tools to face my future with confidence and to dream about making a difference.

  • Because it is a place that isn't satisfied with simply having a diverse community; rather, we make sure we have a diverse community that works - where everyone feels comfortable and valued.
  • Because it is a place where each person is appreciated for who they are and what they add to the community. Scientists, artists, athletes, tech gurus - each is recognized as vital to the success of the whole.
  • Because the above characteristics make Solebury a place where everyone is continuously challenged to discover their talents and passions and to maximize their natural gifts in and out of the classroom.
  • Because all of this happens on a beautiful campus which has provided generations of students and teachers with equal measures of serenity and inspiration.
  • Why Solebury? Mainly because there is a difference between doing well and thriving, and no one should settle for the former.
