Who We Are

Tatnall students, from PK3 through Grade 12, are engaged and inspired by Tatnall’s exceptional faculty and staff, compelling programs, and "outdoor classroom," a idyllic 110-acre campus with adjoining 350 acres of natural habitats.
We believe that students learn best when they are well-known, so we partner with parents at every stage.
Founded in 1930 by Frances Dorr Swift Tatnall, The Tatnall School values its long-standing school traditions, while also embracing an innovative and collaborative spirit. Our learning spaces—classrooms, labs, performance and art studios, playgrounds, technology centers, forests, and outdoor habitats, athletic fields and gymnasiums—hum constantly with activity.
Tatnall students are talented, curious, active, fun-loving, and involved. They value their adult mentors and contribute in meaningful ways across the campus, as well as in the local and global community. Our graduates appreciate what it means to lead and to serve. Tatnall students garner state and regional recognition each year for their athletic, artistic, and academic achievements. 
Our motto, Omnia in Caritate (All Things Done in Love), best describes the atmosphere you will find at Tatnall. We encourage you to arrange a visit with us to learn more about this remarkable family school. During your visit, expect to encounter educational excellence, teachers with passion, joyful learning, friendly smiles, and an authentically warm Tatnall welcome.
