Relocating Families

Congratulations on your move to the Philadelphia area! Your timing could not be better with the growth of the city, a progressive food culture and the expansion of the arts, it is an exciting time on the Main Line and Philadelphia area!

The Admissions office was really supportive in helping us become acquainted with current families and summer activities at Baldwin. This helped our daughter get to know some students as well as familiarize herself with the campus before school started but also gave us some insight into the community. ~ Andrea Schwartz P'26
