Scuola Marco Polo is a non-profit school for children established in 2000 created in response to the need of Italian citizens and residents in the Tri-State area (PA, NJ, and DE)  to pass on the Italian culture and language to their families and kids. Our goal is to educate families and students on the importance of Italian language, traditions, music, and culture to create a strong community to celebrate Italian and American holidays with family through Scuola Marco Polo.

 

La Scuola Marco Polo è una organizzazione no profit fondata nel 2000 che nasce dal desiderio dei cittadini italiani residenti nella zona di New Jersey, Pennsylvania e Delaware, di tramandare la cultura e la lingua italiana alle proprie famiglie e figli. Il nostro obiettivo è di continuare tutto ciò tramite l’insegnamento ai bambini delle basi grammaticali, della storia e delle tradizioni italiane, e di creare una comunità all’interno della quale essi, insieme alle proprie famiglie, possano celebrare le festività italiane organizzate dalla Scuola Marco Polo.

Testimonials

What Parents are Saying

“My two kids had a great experience at Scuola Marco Polo. They had a chance to interact with other bilingual kids and experience the Italian culture by playing and leaning. These past 5 years have been very important for the growht of Luca and Maggie. This experience, certainly opens the student’s horizon to new understandings and possibilities. I’m very greatful they had this opportunity.”

Eligio Sgaramella

Parent of former students

“My daughter has attended Scuola Marco Polo for the past two years and loves learning Italian. She’s excited all week to go to Italian class on Saturdays, where she learns from caring, creative teachers who make learning fun. This program has enriched my daughter?s life and also allowed me to network with a fantastic group of parents. Thank you Marco and Agnese for providing this wonderful opportunity.”
