Phoenix at a Glance

Founded: 1981 by Barbara McFall and Betsye Sargent
Head of School: Leslie Levesque

Our home base is 5,000 sq. ft. at 89 Margin St. in Salem, in the heart of downtown.  Rather than a campus that provides all the facilities needed for the curriculum, we have chosen to integrate the world around us, near and far, into our campus. We utilize the community to fulfill our educational mission.

Need-based financial assistance available.
