More about

Solebury School

This was the dream shared by Solebury's four young founders, Laurie Erskine, Julian Lathrop, Robert Shaw and Arthur Washburn in the early 1920s. As a result of their vision, Solebury opened its doors in rented quarters September 1925 with four boys and four teachers. A year later, the founders purchased its present location, the Michener Farm, and Solebury School as we know it has continued to grow ever since. Just down the road from Solebury was Holmquist School for Girls. Miss Karline Holmquist believed, as did Solebury's founders, that each student should be helped to discover and develop her own talents and capabilities. As Solebury and Holmquist grew, the two schools found themselves sharing theatrical productions, a chorus, proms, informal teas, progressive dinners and card parties. In 1949 the two schools merged to become Solebury School, one of the first coeducational independent schools in the country. While the faces have changed through the years, Solebury's mission has remained, to provide a challenging college preparatory curriculum that encourages students to explore and develop their individual skills and talents in an informal educational community.
