Lotus School celebrates new home


The Lotus School of Liberal Arts celebrated its grand opening at its new location in Ottsville Thursday, Oct. 25.

The Lotus School, for grades nine to 12, recently moved to a historic former inn at the corner of routes 412 and 611. The original structure dates from 1744 and the entire building encompasses roughly 4,800 square feet.

The Lotus School is a teacher-powered, mindfulness-based, small school that “thinks big with our students to meet their needs individually.”

“The Lotus School provides an environment of tolerance, introspection and individual diversity for all students who have the good fortune of landing here,” said parent Joyce Kellinger, whose daughter, Alana, attends the Nockamixon Township school, located more than 20 miles away from the Kellingers’ home in Richboro.

Alana Kellinger and two other students – Adam Malik and Calla Lunney – led the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the school’s grand opening celebration, which included cake and refreshments along with testominals from Joyce Kellinger and Steffi Eger, the school’s Spanish and arts teacher.
