Revolution School

We are breaking down the walls between learning & life

Revolution School pushes you out of the classroom and into the real world. Our partnerships throughout the city provide opportunities for you to explore your personal interests — and we offer dual enrollment in college classes. From day one, our students build their network and test the road to their future of work with our exciting four-year internship program — REVchat.

Our Story

Right-sized — our community is small but our experiences are really big

We intentionally limit our class and school size to provide personalized learning experiences in and out of the classroom. It’s the best of both worlds: we are a tightknit community with a broad network across Philadelphia and beyond. We live our diversity — we represent almost as many zip codes as we have students. We get to know our city because Revolution School is truly representative of the neighborhoods of Philadelphia. Our students are exposed to a diverse range of ideas, people, and occupations — their experience is larger than any classroom.

“Give students something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.”



behind the


In our leadership, faculty, and student body, we strive to reflect the beautiful diversity of Philadelphia, deeply valuing differences in race, ethnicity, class, gender identification, sexual orientation, religion, age, and physiological ability. This allows students to feel comfortable with those who are different to themselves.


We work together to craft an ambitious educational experience, from individual tutors to dual-enrollment. We harness everyone’s unique potential.


We use Philadelphia’s resources, from city parks to City Hall, public libraries to private board rooms. We make discoveries beyond the classroom.
