Our Goal: Improved Educational Options and Learning Communities
Known for its commitment to cutting-edge academic technology and its growing enterprise of use-inspired research, Drexel University is dedicated to enhancing educational services for public school students and their families living in West Philadelphia. From science programs for middle school students to college tuition support for high school seniors, Drexel improves educational options and learning opportunities for students of all ages.
Drexel works in close partnership with the School District of Philadelphia and the community to bring resources to two schools in the University’s community, the Samuel Powel School (K-4) and the Morton McMichael School (K-8). With support from the Drexel-PECO Community Education Collaborative, Drexel faculty and students have provided extensive professional development at both schools, as well as tutors, enrichment materials and recess activities.
