Message from the Principal

     Welcome to the F. Amedee Bregy Elementary School website. Bregy Elementary School has been serving South Philadelphia since 1923, and currently serves approximately 500 students in preschool through eighth grades, as well as an autistic support program. It is our belief that through a collaborative approach and positive reinforcements, every child can learn. We have a dedicated and passionate faculty and support staff to deliver an effective academic program and provide students with appropriate social interactions to improve self-esteem and build confidence to become ethical citizens and leaders.


     Through a strong home-school connection and consistent community partnerships, we can ensure that all students reach their maximum learning potential. Parents are encouraged to be involved with their child’s educational journey by participating in school events and activities. Please check our website regularly to see what’s new at F. Amedee Bregy Elementary School.

It Begins with a Vision

Our vision at F.A. Bregy elementary School is to foster academic excellence for a diverse community of learners in which students are intrinsically motivated to become knowledge seekers, problem solvers, and culturally accepting individuals. Together staff, parents, students, and the community will create a nuturing and safe learning environment where all students maximize their potential. Upon graduation our students will have the necessary skills to succeed in high school and meet the ever changing demands of the 21st century.
