What to Expect When We Visit
Pull straight down the driveway and park anywhere in the lot. Enjoy the views as you walk towards our Office, located in a restored barn from the 1800’s. Tours are geared towards the whole family, and we do ask that your youth attend the tour with you.
Once here, come into the Office in the Barn. If you anticipate being late, please give us a call and let us know, 610-459-3366.
We will start by learning about your family's educational journey and what inspired you to explore Open Connections. We will share with you our philosophy, core values, and how being part of our community can enrich your educational journey. We will review any questions that you might have as we walk around campus, exploring spaces like the Loft, Science Lab, Art Studio, Makerspace, Multimedia Space, woodshops, and the sprawling 28 acres.
When we’ve concluded our tour, which usually takes about an hour, you’ll leave with some more information about our organization.

Open Connections wishes to cultivate and nurture a rich and inclusive community with families from varying economic, ethnic, racial, and social backgrounds. Ultimately, this inclusive community allows for more varied interactions between youth and opens up hearts, minds, and eyes to alternative thoughts, beliefs, and ways of living. These broad and varied exposures can aid in creating a life of purpose and fulfillment. Our financial aid program is one tool that helps us achieve our goal of a rich community, by providing tuition assistance to families who may not otherwise be able to afford OC.
We really support the principle of life-long learning, so take your time!
To all parents and guardians, we thank you for your interest and appreciate your part in building this community of self-directed learners.
