Dear School Lane Community,

I am thrilled to share that we were recently notified that School Lane Charter School has been ranked #4 in Niche’s 2024 rankings for “Best Charter High Schools in Pennsylvania”.

This is a valuable designation as Niche is the market leader in connecting colleges and schools with students and families. With in-depth profiles on every school and college in America, over 140 million reviews, ratings, and powerful search and data tools, Niche helps millions of students and families find and enroll in the right schools for them.

We exist, and have existed successfully for 25 years, because we offer choice to parents and guardians looking for a unique educational experience for their children. We believe that schools should contribute to a better and more peaceful world by educating young people to value high achievement, lifelong and active learning, diversity and equity, collaborative problem solving, and international mindedness. This work begins when students enter our doors as Kindergartners and continues to bear fruit long after they walk across the stage at graduation with an IB diploma in hand.

I would like to recognize our school leaders, teachers, and staff for working every day to carry out the mission and vision that has made School Lane a special place for a quarter-century. I would also like to thank our parents and guardians for choosing School Lane and trusting us to partner with you in providing the educational foundation for your child. Finally, I would like to thank our students- past and present- for always meeting the high bar we set for academic achievement and citizenship.

I encourage you to share this good news with friends and family so more students can experience the “School Lane difference”. With the 2024-25 enrollment season upon us, please encourage them to visit for information about upcoming admissions events.

Thank you for your continued support!


Karen Schade
