The Upper School at Wyndcroft
"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." - e.e. cummings
An Upper School Wyndcroft education is rooted in tradition, yet is both flexible and enhanced by state-of-the-art technology. Challenging academics in the Upper School at Wyndcroft, in concert with community service, athletics, visual and performing arts, extra curricular activities, and social events, provide excellent support and preparation for students to enter the secondary school of their choice.
Our Upper School Advisory program is designed to support our students' social-emotional growth. Using the Responsive Advisory model, emphasis is placed on strengthening and promoting the "Traits of a Non Sibi Student." Additionally, our Upper School advisors provide support and guidance, as students learn how to advocate for themselves and use the tools at their disposal.
Wyndcroft 7th Graders create their own science fair projects, entering in regional and state level competitions.
It is tradition at The Wyndcroft School that during our Graduation Ceremony, time is devoted for each graduate to give a speech reflecting on their time at Wyndcroft.
Students at The Wyndcroft School receive a firm educational foundation, learn in the spirit of Non Sibi, become part of a true community, and develop leadership skills that translate to success in secondary school and beyond.

Beginning in fifth grade, students:
- take both French and Latin as core academic courses
- focus on developing good study skills
- receive instruction on organization, interpretation, retention, test taking, studying, and listening.
By the time they complete eighth grade, students have demonstrated their maturity and readiness for high school, including reading and debating Romeo and Juliet in both Language Arts and Music, mastering algebraic equations, and reflecting on the causes and consequences of the Civil War.
Wyndcroft makes it less of a challenge to find a superior middle school. Pottstown is the home of our private upper school which serves students in fifth grade through eighth grade. The positive reputation we hold in academics and life skills is the reason Pottstown, Reading, and Collegeville, PA families favor our middle school!
