Implicit in Solebury’s philosophy is our goal to engage and excite kids about learning. Our approach to academics is rigorous yet supportive — even our daily schedule was carefully and thoughtfully created with our students' academic success in mind.
Solebury’s curriculum is academically demanding, has incredible breadth and addresses the different needs and abilities of our students in creative and innovative ways. We offer an unusual depth of opportunity for academically talented students. Students can choose from two dozen honors and AP courses, develop independent studies, and ultimately pursue a senior project, which enables them to explore a field of interest over a dedicated time period. In addition, we offer roughly 100 demanding and challenging trimester and full-year courses uncommonly found at the high school level.
Our small size is an important factor in creating an environment in which academic excellence is prized and possible for a wide range of students. With a faculty/student ratio of one to six and an average class size of 11, our teachers have time to learn the best way to reach each student. We believe this inspires students to work harder because they are known and heard as individuals.
At Solebury, excellence is demanded and the means is provided to achieve it.
