Stepping onto The Tatnall School campus is walking into a world of endless possibilities for your child, no matter if they are entering PK3 to Grade 12. As Frances D.S. Tatnall, founder of The Tatnall School said it best, “Tatnall is not just a school, but a way of life.” With a holistic and individualized emphasis on exceptional academics, outstanding athletics, unparalleled arts, and authentic relationships, your child will constantly be presented with opportunities to grow and develop as citizens and future leaders of our world.
The Tatnall School is not just an education, it is a home away from home. Knowing this, Mrs. Tatnall centered the school’s mission on love, “Omnia in Caritate” - “All things (done) in love.” Our educators embody this by taking an individualized approach to education, not only with our students, but also as partners with our families.
Whether our Early Childhood Division is in our natural habitat releasing butterflies, or our Lower School students engaged in World Peace talks, to our Middle School students proudly sharing their research to the community, to Upper School students deeply engaged in an Independent Study; to viewing one of our spectacular theater productions, to joining our community for Friday night football games under the lights. At every turn, you will find that we truly offer a “way of life” to our families, built on the foundation of love.
We hope to share all of this and so much more with your family throughout the year. Come see for yourself all that Tatnall has to offer; whether it is for a private tour, a Hornet for a Day shadow visit, a theater production, a concert, an art gallery show, a sporting event, or an Open House; the more times that you have an opportunity to see our Tatnall community in action, the more you will come to find that The Tatnall School is your family’s home away from home.
