Philadelphia Classical School serves children Grades K – 6 from all neighborhoods and surrounding Philadelphia area. The school will grow to Grade 7 in the 2018-2019 school year.
Arrival to school begins 8am and class begins at 8:15am. Pickup begins at 3:15pm. Every Friday, PCS Students wear their dress uniform and gather in the chapel to begin their day.
Parents are required to volunteer 4 times a year. School volunteers must complete the following three clearances before volunteering at Philadelphia Classical School. PCS will not pay for or provide a refund for the FBI Criminal Clearances.
PA State Police Criminal Clearances (Act 34) – free for volunteers
Pennsylvania Child Abuse Clearances (Act 151) – free for volunteers; $8 if less than 57 months from last request
Federal Criminal Clearance (FBI Fingerprinting Act 114) – Cost $22.60
If the school volunteer has been a resident of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for the entirety of the previous 10 years, they may complete the Waiver of FBI Criminal Background Check instead of obtaining the FBI Fingerprinting. This waiver can be obtained from the PCS Office.
Please turn in hard-copies of your clearances to the PCS Office. Any questions may be directed to [email protected]
