Mission Statement

Solebury School’s mission is to create an environment of educational excellence that prepares students for success in college and beyond. In the Solebury community, we strongly value intellectual challenge and academic achievement, creative and independent thinking, mutual respect between students and teachers, deep respect for each individual and diversity. 

From Day one in 1925, the bedrock principle of this school, out of which everything else follows, has been mutual respect between students and faculty. We don't only insist that students respect others. Every school does that. Our ideal is that teachers respect students in a way that doesn't feel put on. When students feel respected, they find themselves at a school that they want to be part of -- where they want to create and collaborate.

 "In everyone there is an artist and an athlete and a scholar–we have a mind, we are creative, we have bodies. If we can keep those in harmony, we can be whole. That's the challenge of education-to help people see that in themselves."

Alan Taback,
retired faculty member
