Pennfield Welcomes Military Families
The Pennfield School has a strong history of working with military families from the Naval War College, welcoming about 14 annually and making them part of our community. They arrive from all over the world—from Azerbaijan, Oman, England, India, Norway and the United States, among other places. Typically at the school for one to three years, they blend right in with our students. Indeed, there’s a real appreciation for military families here—we celebrate their presence by hanging flags from their home countries in our gymnasium, taking a military photo each year that we hang by our front desk, holding a Veterans Day assembly, and inviting parents to talk about their service. We once Skyped with a father in Saudi Arabia at a school assembly!
Starting for the 2018-2019 school year, The Pennfield School will increase its military discount to 50% for active duty U. S. military families that have students in grades Kindergarten - Grade 8. Pennfield will offer a 25% military discount for active duty U. S. military families for children in the 5 day a week preschool or prekindergarten program.
“Without wishing to diminish (our daughter’s) own effort… I credit Pennfield for setting her up for success. She graduated with the academic foundations, self-confidence, love of learning and general ‘Joi de Vivre’ that have carried her through her high school career. What an incredible institution you and your team have built. I cannot thank you enough.”
