Fall 2020 Main Line Parent Education Guide
The Main Line Parent Community knows best! Scroll and click through our Parent-to-Parent School Directory to learn about the amazing Delaware Valley independent schools and to find out when they’re hosting admissions events this fall. We’re pretty sure by the time you reach the end you’ll have some great contenders for your student in mind.
Our Main Line Parent team spent the summer interviewing local families and educators to give you a personal look at the best private and independent schools. The School Partners profiled below support the Main Line Parent Community and our team. We encourage you to visit each school you’re considering with a virtual or in person open house, there’s nothing quite like a personal tour to get to know a school’s community when you’re searching for the right fit.
And we are proud to present a NEW directory of our Education Partners! Main Line Parent Education Partners represent schools and educational enrichment organizations in our area who would like to be more connected with families around the Main Line and Philly’s suburbs.
Main Line Parent was created to connect local families with resources, events, and each other and it all started with our vibrant Main Line Parent Community Facebook Group and our weekly Email Newsletters, which continue to grow with and support new and expectant parents, empty nesters, families who are new to the area, and natives alike!
Many of our Education Partners and Business Members generously offer a perk or discount for our Supporting Members as a part of their collaboration with us. We hope you’ll consider supporting our mission of Building Community by joining us as a Supporting Member, and that you’ll refer your friends to our resources, events, and ideas for making the most of raising kids around the Main Line!
