At Saturday School, we look at the uniqueness of each student as a priceless expression of creative possibilities. That uniqueness deserves to be nurtured, whether your talent is only now beginning to emerge or is already amply evident. We are a cultural enclave in Center City where exploration happens in a nurturing environment. At the Saturday School you will be with other high school students who, like you, have a style and talent all their own. Those differences will help you here. And so will we. Weâ€™ll help launch the art within you, art that can build a college career, art that can help you belong in a future made rich by your talent.
