Getting here is easy!

The Agnes Irwin School is located 10 miles west of Philadelphia in a suburban community easily accessible by public transportation. Our campus is near Villanova University and just minutes from train stops at the university and nearby Haverford College. 
Our students hail from 85 zip codes — from Philadelphia to New Jersey to Collegeville. 

We're just a hop, skip, and jump away:

Collegeville Area

The Agnes Irwin School, in conjunction with The Shipley School, now offers a morning shuttle service to school for students living in the Collegeville area! The shuttle leaves from the Wegmans grocery store in the Providence Town Center each morning, and is offered through King Limousine, who has experience providing transportation for other schools in our area. We already have four families taking advantage of this low-cost opportunity! Contracts are signed on a semester basis to meet the needs of you and your daughter. Please reach out to if you have any further questions about this travel opportunity for your daughter to get to AIS!

Center City

The Agnes Irwin School is pleased to announce a private van service which will be available for current and entering AIS families who live in Center City. A fee will be charged and the private service will be organized based on ridership (minimum 5 riders) so locations will be determined at a later date based on subscribers. Pick-up and drop-off times will be coordinated with our school schedule. A deposit of $500 will be required for this service no later than March 1, which is payable directly to the private van service company.

Currently enrolled families may contact Amelia Fogarino at the van service company number which is 215-480-0800 for more information on the service being offered in September. Families who are considering Agnes Irwin for the first time should contact the Office of Admission at 610-526-1667 in order to begin the application process, as this service is only available after enrollment.

By Train

Free shuttle transportation is available to and from the Villanova stations for two SEPTA Regional Rail Lines: Paoli/Thorndale Line station, located 1.5 miles from the school, and the Norristown High Speed Line station, just half a mile from the school. A schedule of daily pickup and return times is published at the start of the year and is available at the main lobby reception desk.

If planning to use public transit to visit AIS, please call ahead to request help with transportation from these stations: 610-526-1667.
