An engaged audience of Swain families and faculty were joined by community members to view Angst: Breaking the Stigma Around Anxiety: a documentary that looks at anxiety, its causes and effects, and what we can do about it. It was screened on April 11.

Angst featured interviews with kids and adults – including Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps – who suffer or have suffered from anxiety, and what they’ve learned.

Plans will soon be announced for the 2018-2019 Parenting Education Series.

Swain's Parenting Education Series is presented by Brookside Dental.


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.
