William Penn High School has modern and cutting edge degree programs & equipment to prepare our students for college and careers…

William Penn High School has restructured into three colleges: STEM, Business, and Humanities.
Each college offers a variety of majors and concentrations. Students will select a course of study; and over four years, gain the necessary skills to either enter a college or begin a trade. Many of our degree programs offer the opportunity to achieve a trade certificate, and all student transcripts and diplomas include the student’s degree program as they prepare for admission to college. All classes connect to the student’s major and encompass project based learning using industry-standard equipment. All majors include a senior project (working with local businesses) and opportunities for advanced placement courses. Many of our programs articulate to local universities, giving our students the ability to earn college credits while at William Penn High School.
