Sponsorship at Penn Alexander School

Since its founding in 2001, PAS has been a national model for how a racially, ethnically, and socio-economically diverse and high-achieving public school can be created and thrive. Your support is needed now more than ever as public schools continue to be significantly underfunded. Join us in our steadfast commitment to providing high quality public school education in Philadelphia.


Take a look at our accomplishments and help us provide financial support for the academic enrichment programs listed below:

  • 2021 & 2016 National Blue Ribbon School distinction by the U.S. Department of Education
  • 2019 Highest Overall School Progress Report (SPR) Score. Three Years of Improvement
  • 2018 & 2016 Robotics Team earned ticket to the FIRST Lego World Championship
  • Numerous achievements in science, technology, music, history, writing, and environmental and racial justice

While approx. 40% of our students live below the poverty line, at the same time many families are privileged to work for big corporations and local universities. Because of support from families, businesses, and universities, PAS is able to provide funding for so many extra programs, such as:

  • Robust art program with a full time art teacher
  • Classroom & Afterschool programming: science experiments and dissection, sports teams, yoga, ballroom dancing, and subsidized field trips just to name a few
  • Teacher and staff support including training courses, classroom books and materials, and teacher appreciation gifts and events.


If you have a business you own, work for, or wish to recommend to become a sponsor, please let us know!
