Building 21 Philadelphia is a non-selective competency-based high school in the School District of Philadelphia. It is a new secondary model that seeks to facilitate an authentic learning experience that will address the unique social and academic needs of all learners.
The Building 21 Philadelphia team will work closely with members of the local and school communities to carefully construct a robust network of online, offline, individual, small group, large group, skills-based, and applied learning opportunities to more effectively serve students of all types. Most importantly, the Building 21 model will develop teachers as guides and students as designers of their own pathways to graduation by giving them choice and voice about how, what, and where they learn.
We will be starting a new Friday schedule on October 7th. This schedule will include Pathways and Credit Recovery. Students in need of credit recovery must take credit recovery classes. We will be scheduling you into those classes. We want to get your input on the Pathways that interest you the most. Not all of these will be offered every Learning Cycle and you will not always get your first choice.

If you haven’t already, please also complete the two question credit recovery survey for the after school program.
Every few months, we want to know how you are doing. This survey is kind of like our progress report to see if we are impacting you positively. Please answer honestly. See your advisor if you have questions.
