Why Tatnall?

At The Tatnall School, students embark upon an innovative intellectual journey rooted in a commitment to character. Going beyond the classroom, interdisciplinary project-based learning is the hallmark of a Tatnall education. In Tatnall’s Innovation and Design lab spaces, six art studios, three wildlife habitats, and the Laird Performing Arts Center, students are propelled to creatively engage with new disciplines, cultures, and perspectives. Tatnall’s exceptional faculty ensures that every student experiences a transformative education that sparks the confidence to approach old challenges in new ways and cultivates a lifelong love of learning. Tatnall graduates, in the words of M.I.T. freshman Chase Reid ‘18, “venture out into the world...change it, improve it, and make [their] mark upon it.”
