Independent Preschool-8th Grade

Field of Dreams Project Announced

It is with great enthusiasm that we share our "Field of Dreams" project for the front of Swain. This project is just one component of ReImagine Swain, the school's three-year action plan, which was recently unveiled.

The Field of Dreams includes a soccer field, ampitheatre, and an environmental classroom. The field, appropriately named Werner Field in honor of the many years of service Maggie Werner has given to our Athletics program, will serve as a playing space for our younger students and provide the opportunity to serve developmental level teams on our campus.

The Ella Kovats-Bernat Ampitheatre will be a beautiful space for classes, entire grades, or our larger community to gather and watch performances, hear speakers, or simply reflect.

Finally, the Barbara Schuster Memorial Learning Garden will be an environmental classroom filled with unique and beneficial plantings that will allow students to explore and study the local ecosystem. It will also serve a sustainability purpose as well as provide a beautiful entrance to our school.

We anticipate the realization of this dream in the spring of 2018. Help us build the Field of Dreams - donate now.


The Swain School, 1100 S. 24th St., Allentown, offers a vibrant education to 322 children in Preschool (aged three) - 8th grade. We do this by supplementing our academic program with additional opportunities in arts, athletics, engineering and design, public speaking, character education, technology, science, and languages.

Our beautiful 20-acre campus is conveniently located five minutes off the Lehigh Street exit of I-78, and busing is available to students from many local school districts at no charge.
