About Us

We believe that all students can and will be successful in high school and beyond. We are searching for students who want to be challenged in their studies, and who care deeply about the environment and their education.

Lankenau is a special admissions high school focused on raising awareness of environmental issues. Our small learning community is located in the hills of Upper Roxborough on a scenic campus, far away from the pressures of city living. The School District of Philadelphia buses all of our students to our campus. We take great pride in our beautiful campus where we have numerous gardens and outdoor experiences. We have often been called “The Country Campus for the College Bound.”
