Due to the ongoing threat posed by COVID-19, and in keeping with Chester County Health Department’s recommendation, TCS will open with a virtual instructional model on September 8, 2020.  Details will be shared with families and interested parties shortly.

The Concept School Difference

The Concept School is a co-educational independent school for students grades 6 -12. At TCS we educate students who learn differently and benefit from a smaller, relaxed, more personalized environment where learning and anxiety challenges are seen as opportunities to explore alternative routes to success.

Located on a ten-acre campus with an adjoining nature area and outdoor classroom, TCS provides a hands-on and individualized educational program that prepares TCS graduates to meet the demands of post-secondary life, whether entering college, career training programs, or the workforce.

12th Grade
Before Concept, I changed schools a lot. I started at a Quaker school, then moved to a public school for a year before I went to boarding school in New Mexico for two years. When I came home to Pennsylvania in 2013, I visited Concept and really liked it. It's a small school, with teachers who help you learn and get through the school day. I love how Concept is flexible and understands that most students learn differently.

According to Nick’s parents, “The Concept School has changed Nick’s entire outlook on life. He is thriving because he is in an environment where he can succeed. We are so grateful to this school for showing Nick he is valued and for providing him with the skills and confidence he needs to flourish. It’s very simple. The Concept School changed our son’s life for the better, and made a life-long difference for our whole family."
