Head of School

Interim Head of School, Suzy Liegel

Welcome to Phil-Mont Christian Academy!

Phil-Mont is an accredited, independent, co-educational, college preparatory school located in suburban Philadelphia which serves approximately 260 students enrolled in K through grade 12. Our mission is to provide excellent academic education from a consistent Christian world-and-life view for the children in Christian families.

I serve as the interim Head of a long line of Heads of School in our more than 70 years of ministry. In some ways there have been many changes over the years. Locations, size of school, faculty members, Board leadership, and certainly tuition, among many other things, have changed over those years. What has also changed is our culture and community. Compared to the days of our inception the world is in a technological, social, and political whirlwind of fast-paced change. In the midst of such change Phil-Mont continues its commitment and effectiveness of partnering with parents in educating our children regarding the person, power, and purposes of God in and through all that He has made. In a world that screams to us that each individual is lord of his own life, Phil-Mont continues to boldly profess and propagate that God is the only Lord and through Jesus has been reconciling the world to Himself.  We continue to teach the Scriptures as the only infallible rule of faith and life and that a proper education includes understanding the world as God made it while understanding how he made us and the roles to which He calls us in this world.

Phil-Mont is activley looking for our next Head of School. Please view our employment section for a link to the job description and application.

I invite you to get to know us through this site or through a call to our office for information. I invite you to inquire of friends, neighbors, current families or alumni whose paths have connected with Phil-Mont over the years. Through the passion of our mission, the satisfaction of sacrificing parents, the rigorous learning of our students, the devotion of our faculty, and  the educational and career pursuits of our alumni, I believe you will receive helpful and honest answers for the questions regarding the Christian education of your children. At Phil-Mont, helping students to develop a consistent Biblical worldview does not come at the sacrifice of excellent academic preparation. Rather, it is that consistent Biblical worldview which gives purpose, meaning and enjoyment to the discovery of the world in which we are called to live, lead and serve. Through understanding who God is and what He has made, our young people are thoroughly equipped to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.

“Lord, all that we have accomplished, you have done for us.” Isaiah 26:12
