At Revolution, student innovation is everywhere. We encourage you to begin your own clubs and lead one another. We’re a new school blazing new paths and traditions—and while we expect some of the choices we offer to be familiar, others will be unique.
Terraforming is the process of creating an Earth-like environment on another plant. While you won’t be going to school on Mars, you can join with teachers to make the school a better place to inhabit. The classroom is your canvas, and we invite you to identify problems and solutions to make your new home a welcoming one.
As part of your project lanes and advisory curriculum, you’ll be trained in entrepreneurship and project management. Why not use your school and larger community as your proving ground? We encourage you to use your newfound knowledge and skills to create business models, secure funding, and ultimately start and sustain a business for customers within and outside of school.
Expression can come in many forms, and talents abound in our student body. We’ll host regular coffee houses and open mics where everyone is encouraged to show off, experiment, and get weird. We’ll also nurture pop-up music, theater, and dance ensembles according to student interest, leveraging our rich partnerships in the Philly arts community. Visual and graphic artists can make their presence felt with murals and installations both on-campus and with local artists as partners. Whether you’re a seasoned artist or just trying something new, we want you to share your talents with the world!
As an option within our health and wellness program, you may choose to join one of our club sports teams—or start your own. Designed to promote skill development and competitive spirit, Revolution teams will represent the school in interscholastic competitions. We’re currently planning to have cross-country, basketball, and soccer available for our first class. But if your true passion is water polo or curling we’ll do everything we can to support you in getting a team up and running.
Are you that kid who’s always asking questions? Do you absolutely need to know not only what something’s called, but also how it works, and why? The more questions you ask, the more you’ll get out of a Revolution School education—and the more reasons you have to apply.
