The concept that a school can only be good at either academics or sports (not both) is just notIntelligent. Success on the field has nothing to do with a lack of success in the classroom. "Used to be a strong academic school" is a statement made by someone who has no idea what they are talking about.

Exactly. A lot of private school haters in the forum making up stuff, too. Someone quoted Malvern tuition at $68k — you can Google their web site and in 10 seconds you’ll have a factual answer ($36.4K in the upper school). Also factual, Malvern’s web site lists college acceptances over the past few years. Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Penn, Stanford, MIT, Hopkins, Cornell, Dartmouth, Northwestern, Un of Chicago, Duke, NYU, Carnegie Mellon, UC Berkeley, UCLA, etc. Not bad considering they “used to be a strong academic school.” Geez.

Who is Team PA 2027? They appear to be holding their own at Naptown but I’ve never heard of them?

Team PA and Nationals were recruiting many of the same players for Naptown, interesting they ended up facing each other in semis.

No offense, but not really that interesting...we all know we have a ton of talent in the area and these clubs split them up for Naptown.

Definitely some bright students at Malvern who are on scholarship. Those students keep the bar high. Many of the those being accepted into college are either the premiere student or on sports scholarship. The reason I say this is that I had a family member go to Malvern after being at another school. Not a particularly great student....could not be in the honors classes at his old school. In Malvern, almost all straight A's. His words not mine.....Malvern is incredibly easy. Before you say I am a "hater"....know that I support Malvern through donations. I think they produce wonderful men who value service and community which is more important to me then academics. That being said, this is not the Malvern or 20 years ago academically, not even close.
