Welcome to the Swain Campus

Preschool to Grade 8

At our beautiful 20 acres campus in Allentown, PA our vibrant community inspires students to achieve academic excellence, develop a strong sense of character, and act responsibly in a changing world. We empower children to build confidence, explore knowledge, and work collaboratively in a diverse and safe environment, while nurturing their individual spirit. 

Student Leadership

By the time our students reach their Eighth Grade year, they are ready to represent their class by using their voice with authenticity and spirit.

Swain Graduates

When our 8th Graders move on to Upper School, they possess a solid academic foundation, understand themselves as learners, and are fully prepared for success at the next educational level. We strive to send them into the world feeling confident and ready to take on any task with rigor and compassion. While their time on Swain's Campus might be coming to an end, they will forever have a home-base as they move on in their educational journey.

Stay Connected

We love staying connected to our Swain family in whatever way possible.
