We Are AR

We're available while our building is closed due to Coronavirus

We are working diligently to meet the needs of our incoming families as well as provide for the health and safety of our students and team. We know that the coronavirus has already been disruptive in many aspects of daily life so we wanted to share with you what the Admissions Office at Ryan is doing to support both our prospective families and employees. Whether you want to talk about all that Ryan has to offer your child or just need some assistance with the application process, you can expect the same friendly and helpful service you’re used to from our team. We’re here for you.


To ensure that your needs are supported, we’ve taken specific steps as part of our continuity plan:


  • We’ve moved our employees to work from home in a thoughtful, choreographed manner. This ensures that you will continue to receive excellent customer service and support. You can always call us at 215-637-1800 ext. 7007 or email admissions@arhs.org for a quick and courteous response.
  • While our building is closed, our online Applicant Portal is available to collect documents, fill out forms, and more. If you need help with the portal, visit our portal help page or call our office. You can also email documents to admissions@arhs.org.
  • Want to chat live with a member of oru team? Schedule a Zoom Video Conference at your convenience.


As the situation evolves, please know that the Admissions team is investing our full talent, capabilities, and support and reacting in real-time to make sure we’re here supporting our families through this.
