About a year and a half ago, a parent in my kids’ school district called to tell me about Giving Fridays, an initiative she’d launched in her daughter’s elementary school. Each week, she set out bins to collect nonperishable food donations, and on Fridays, families could sign up to transport that week’s donations to a local food pantry. I could hear the enthusiasm in her voice as she described how the program had taken hold and sparked conversations within families about hunger and the importance of giving back. Now she wanted to expand the program to the elementary school where my own children attended. READ MORE
The Middle School at Malvern Preparatory School takes an innovative approach to teaching and learning - engaging and inspiring boys at a pivotal age by fostering inquisitive thinking, character development, and lifelong friendships. Our challenging Middle School curriculum prepares boys for the rigorous studies they’ll encounter in Upper School and beyond. They learn to think at a deeper level as we encourage them to ask important questions, think creatively, and apply their knowledge for the common good.
Our students are entrusted with responsibility from an early age - emphasizing that at Malvern we’re all problem-solvers, we’re all creators, and we’re all in this together.
Learning to trust their inner teacher builds self-confidence in their abilities. Discovering the values and strengths of others in the community grows their compassion. Exploring their power to impact the world ignites their imagination.
The result: young men who lead boldly and serve humbly wherever they go.
Malvern Preparatory School's Admissions Department looks forward to hosting Middle School families for a Middle School Preview Morning this spring. Prospective families are invited to join us on campus to meet and hear from school leadership about Middle School academic programming, activities, and opportunities for your son.
Register today to join us on campus on Friday, March 10, 2023, beginning at 8:00 a.m.
