The Souderton Area School District (SASD) includes an area of 49 square miles in Upper Montgomery County. It is the largest school district, in square miles, in the county. The district is situated midway between the cities of Allentown and Philadelphia. Due to its locale the district has the best of both worlds: proximity to the city, while in a semi-rural setting. Six municipalities are within the boundaries of the SASD: the two boroughs of Souderton and Telford and the four townships of Franconia, Lower Salford, Upper Salford and Salford. The population of the school district exceeded 43,109 according to the 2010 census.

SASD Mission Statement
"The Mission of the Souderton Area School District is to prepare students to demonstrate competencies needed to contribute and to succeed in a changing world by building on a commitment to excellence and innovation, by working in partnership with family and community, and by assuring a quality education for all students in a safe and nurturing environment."

Our Community

Construction of the Souderton Area High School (SAHS) was completed in 2009, to include grades 9-12 at one building. Indian Crest and Indian Valley Middle Schools became grades 6-8 buildings at that time.

The high school, and renovation projects at Indian Crest and Indian Valley Middle Schools, provides the district with the facilities to educate all students for many years to come. All schools in the SASD are fully air-conditioned.

Due to declining enrollment, the Lower Salford Elementary School was closed during the Summer of 2013. Students from the Lower Salford Elementary School were reassigned to the Vernfield and Salford Hills Elementary Schools.

The school population is currently 6,551. The 2016-2017 grade structure is: elementary - grades K-5; Indian Crest Middle School and Indian Valley Middle School - grades 6-7-8; and Souderton Area High School - grades 9-10-11-12.



Community Education/Involvement

Evening School classes are available through the District Community Education program and North Montco Technical Career Center. Adult Evening School classes are offered in the fall and spring in the SASD. The school district also sponsors a complete summer recreation program with day camps, summer adventure trips and specialized classes. Sports camps are offered through the SAHS Athletic Department. Community-based programs such as Art Goes to School, Artists In Action, Partnership Advisory Team business partnership and the Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce Education Committee tie the community to the schools.

The SAHS pool is open year-round for student and community use. The Hands Across the District volunteer program encourages parents, non-parents and senior citizens to volunteer in the schools, thus enhancing the educational program.

The Souderton Area Education Foundation is a broad-based, non-profit community organization designed to secure resources from individuals and corporations to provide expanded learning opportunities through student, teacher and business partnerships. Over $600,000 in mini and special grants has been awarded to the Souderton Area School District.

Community members are invited to visit the SASD schools and become part of the educational planning as the district looks to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
