Backpack Course

Getting ready for “back-to-school”? Be sure to fill your backpack with all the essentials. Students in 5th through 8th grade are welcome to attend our workshop on study skills, note taking, time management, and organization. Spend time working with current Saint Basil faculty members and students and hear about their keys to a successful school year! This free workshop will take place on Wednesday, August 21st from 3:00 to 5:00 at Saint Basil Academy.


Our campus is located on 44 spacious acres in Jenkintown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The Academy was founded by the Order of the Sisters of Saint Basil the Great in 1931, with the strong desire and goal to build the minds of leaders through service and compassion.

Saint Basil Academy provides a college preparatory curriculum for students in grades 9 through 12, which will prepare the girls for the challenges they will face both in college and the world.

We welcome you to continue to peruse our website, to learn about the curriculum, read about the highlights of the many clubs, activities and our championship sport teams.

We believe in challenging students to form personal moral values based on Christian teaching, thus deepening the students’ understanding of Christ and their call to faith in Him.
