Middle School


Dear Parents and Students,

What is so unique about a Middle School education at Solebury School? Here, the 7th and 8th grades are years of excitement, of wonder, and of enormous growth potential. Solebury’s Middle School is a school within a school. It combines a small, safe environment with room to explore while providing a strong academic and social foundation for high school. It is a place where students and teachers work with each other, rather than against each other. It is a place where students are known and appreciated for who they are and the different talents they possess.  There is no slipping through the cracks here. The challenging academics we provide, the guidance and support we offer, and the opportunities that exist here result in success for our students.

I encourage you to take some time and learn more about Solebury’s Middle School. Then come visit us; you’ll see and feel what is special about Solebury from the moment you step on campus. I look forward to meeting you.

If you have any questions, please contact me at cari@solebury.org.

Middle School Director


"The Middle School experience prepared me so well for high school. Being with the same classmates for most of the day really helped me develop socially, while the available high school courses challenged me academically. The Middle School faculty, in particular, was always supportive in helping us transition to high school. At Solebury, I had the opportunity to take high school classes, and interact with high school students! By the end of eighth grade, I knew exactly what I was up against, and how to best handle it.”
