Bodine High School for International Affairs

Bodine High School, a small special admissions school co-sponsored by the School District of Philadelphia and the World Affairs Council, offers a humanities-centered college preparatory program. Bodine attracts a multi-cultural student body from all parts of the city. Although diverse in matters of race, ethnicity, and religion, Bodine students share a common desire for interpersonal and international harmony, a rich and relevant academic program and a nurturing educational environment. The mission of Bodine High School is to sustain and elaborate a public school program where those desires can be satisfied.

The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia is a private, non-partisan educational program dedicated to creating a more informed citizenry on matters of national and international significance. In cooperation with the School District of Philadelphia, the World Affairs council established William W. Bodine high School for International Affairs in 1981, making Bodine the first public school in the nation to be co-sponsored by a private world affairs organization.

In 2009 Bodine was chosen as a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education, and is consistently rated as one of the top high schools in the country by U.S. News magazine.
