For nearly 150 years, the Perkiomen School community has never stopped asking: how do we deliver innovative, transformative experiences for our students?
To achieve the goals of this $30 million comprehensive campaign, the largest in our school’s history, we must make unprecedented investments in Perkiomen to risk becoming the very best school—to serve students and families, to attract and retain outstanding faculty, and to lead the next generation of education innovation.
Our vision encompasses the whole school. It creates new spaces for arts and athletics to flourish and emphasizes essential investments in the annual fund and a stronger endowment.
We invite you to join us in embracing this historic opportunity to transform Perkiomen and, by extension, to enrich the lives of many more students through your generous support.

Our Moment to Lead, A Campaign for Perkiomen School is made possible thanks to the commitment of our Campaign Committee, which includes Perkiomen Board members, alumni, parents, and faculty. These visionaries have given generously— supporting the campaign financially, serving as valuable partners with the school during the campaign, and sharing their practical experience and diverse expertise with the Perkiomen community.
“The student center is central to the continued growth of our institution, and it will be a foundation that provides a wealth of opportunities for our teachers and students to exchange ideas and engage in forward-thinking ways to make the most of a Perkiomen educational experience. Development is a team effort, and it has been so enjoyable to share this experience in working with my colleagues on the Campaign Committee to achieve this inspirational goal at Perkiomen.”
“Working alongside enthusiastic volunteers and among committed and energized alumni and parents has made OMTL Campaign one of my most fulfilling professional experiences. The broad and positive spirit has been pervasive and has driven our efforts from day one. The quality of everyone’s participation gratefully has been matched by great generosity, which I expect is, in great part, due to the priorities being strategic programmatically and easily recognizable as impactful – first to the student body and in turn to admissions, insuring our position as a successful independent school. This is what excites me most… that said, the ping pong tables planned for the outdoor recreation space get me jazzed too!”
“We find ourselves in a moment where meaningful human connection with people creating more of the good they want to see in the world is essential. I was drawn to OMTL because of the people on the Campaign Committee – they are passionate, engaged, warm, welcoming, genuine, and strong champions for the students and community at Perk. I leave each conversation inspired, renewed, and keen to see what we can continue to create together both for Perk and our global community.”
“Building a new Student Center at the heart of the campus is an excellent metaphor for how we’re centering the relationships and resources that bolster the learning and living of our community in OMTL. This new space is beautiful, functional, and malleable – meaning it can be arranged to evolve as the field of education does to meet the needs of our students now and for generations. It’ll be a wonderful place to refuel, learn, explore, and connect with new people and ideas!”
“When I was serving as Board Chair, I realized the school needed a vibrant student center. Thus, Lloyd’s Café! Because of the teachers of 1963 to 1965, I gained the work ethic and study skills to be able to do college-level work and be successful in my career and personal life. I co-chair this committee as a way to say thank you to the school community who made me who I am today and build a bright future for tomorrow’s community members.”
“What Mark Devey has done in a remarkably brief amount of time is develop a sustainable vision for Perkiomen, which promises to strengthen the school and improve education more widely. We must act on this vision. It’s our time to lead, our opportunity to make a difference for everyone.”James Finnegan P’16, ’18, Board Chair
