Traditional guidelines are followed in order to provide ample preparation for post-high school study. These guidelines encompass the four major academic subjects of English, mathematics, science and social studies. In addition, enrichment studies in the humanities, arts, study skills and career fields make up the balance of the high school schedule. Also required is a diverse and individualized physical education program and a course in health. It is this enrichment program that has contributed to Wyncote being named one of the top private schools in the Philadelphia area.
