A Brief History

Founded in 1938 with just 11 classes at Radnor High School, School Night now offers over 400 courses each term spanning 25 subject areas. Our extensive educational network includes a variety of locations, easily accessible from the Main Line and neighboring communities.

Through a wide range of non-credit programs, courses and activities, School Night provides exciting new perspectives for the edification and enjoyment of people seeking affordable lifelong learning opportunities. Our not-for-profit organization is governed by a Board of Directors and is supported by course fees, grants and contributions.

It all started with an active Radnor parent and local businessman, Harry Creutzburg. His inspiration was to offer evening classes at Radnor High School to increase community support for its activities. Lower Merion, Harriton and Conestoga High Schools followed and were more recently supplemented by additional community locations. Leadership fell to David Kreitler, who in his 50 years of service made Main Line School Night a national model of adult education.

The "heart" of School Night is the Creutzburg Center, located in Radnor's Harford Park. Designed by the architectural firm of Furness and Evans, it was the Victorian estate of Judge John Innes Clark Hare. Leased from Radnor Township since 1970, the Creutzburg Center is our administrative office and the location of most daytime and Saturday classes.
