At Purnell, each individual is recognized and respected for her own abilities, enabling each girl to be herself – to explore her passions, discover her strengths, and become a confident, successful, lifelong learner.
Students come to school with varying backgrounds and skill sets. At Purnell, ours is a highly individualized education; whatever the learning difference, girls are given support that is as unique as they are.
Arts & Music
With a wide array of options in the performing and studio arts, and the support and guidance of professional artists, girls are able to discover their artist within.
A Welcoming, Inspiring Community
Purnell is a small, caring, welcoming community where each girl is known and valued. Here, differences are not only understood; they are appreciated and celebrated. Here, girls can be themselves.
Many opportunities to engage & have fun
For both day and boarding students, involvement comes easy, and in many forms – from campus activities and clubs, to our LifeSports program, to the many opportunities of nearby NYC.
Safe Living & Learning Environment
Purnell's 21st-century living and learning environment sits securely amid the peaceful rolling hills of Pottersville, New Jersey, yet just an hour from New York City and two hours from Philadelphia.
