Centers of Excellence

In today’s evolving global economy, creativity isn’t just a buzzword. In fact, a 2010 IBM survey of more than 1,500 CEOs revealed that “More than rigor, management discipline, integrity or even vision, successfully navigating an increasingly complex world will require creativity.”

At Tatnall, our students are at the forefront of the creativity movement. Thanks to numerous programs including Creation Stations, Tinker Labs and Creativity Clubs designed to encourage exploration, creation and invention, our students have countless opportunities to unleash their minds. Tatnall’s creatively-focused spaces and projects nurture curiosity and encourage students to grow in self-esteem all while supporting important 21st century skills that allow students to explore their whole skill set.


"We want to give students a place and time to pursue interesting projects, especially those that are cross-disciplinary and creative. In these maker spaces students learn transferable skills, from technical to design skills, that will serve them for the rest of their lives."
