Gold Star Middle School Program

If you’re searching for a private middle school near Philadelphia that goes a step beyond providing a conventional education, you might find that Wyncote Academy is a perfect fit.

The Middle School years represent a time in the life of children ages 11 through 14 when they are faced with a series of physical and emotional changes. It is also the time when they leave the supportive surroundings of an elementary setting and are met with new expectations that demand more independence in school. Such demands, during what is often already a stressful time, make it hard for some children to succeed.

That is where the small, nurturing program at Wyncote Academy’s Middle School may help in bridging the gap between the comforts of elementary school and the challenges of high school. Wyncote Academy’s Middle School program is designed to support children who are starting to slip by helping them develop organizational skills, good study habits, self-discipline, and confidence in their ability to work independently. Individualized programs are based on each student’s skills and needs.

The small, closely supervised setting provides students with a safe environment and gives teachers quick insight to problem areas so those can be addressed immediately.

Through hands-on activities such as visits to museums, aquariums and national parks, teachers bring subject matter to life for students.
