Phelps is a small school with an enrollment of 110 boarding and day boys in grades 6-12 and a few post-graduates.
The Phelps School serves boys in grades six through post-graduate. Phelps provides a unique college preparatory education within an academically supportive environment. Our population is incredibly diverse, with 30 percent of the student body coming from outside the United States. Some of the students struggle with Executive Functioning concerns, such aorganization, time management, and decision making, and this is a major emphasis of the educational program. Some of the students have a diagnosed attentional issue or a minor learning difference; others have never had to undergo any type of psycho-educational evaluation. Some boys come to Phelps from public schools where they may or may not have IEPs (Individualized Educational Programs); others have taken advanced level courses throughout their entire school careers. Phelps has recently graduated prolific writers, brilliant mathematicians, stellar athletes, gifted musicians and artists, and young entrepreneurs.
