Churchville Real Estate
With a population of just over 5,000 at the 2010 census, Churchville is a small town with big promise. This quaint, friendly southeastern Pennsylvania town is located just 25 miles from Philadelphia and about an hour from the New York Metropolitan area – consequently, there are plenty of jobs in the area. Another consequence of being sandwiched between major cities – Churchville became a major commuter town back in the 1950’s and 60’s and the town experience a relative boom. In 1983, the town lost its commuter railway line when the Trains Fox Chase-Newtown Rapid Transit Line was forced to close the Churchville station and all others north of Fox Chase. Recently however there have been strong bipartisan discussions about resuming passenger service to relieve traffic congestion in the region. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) has also indicated its willingness to reestablish this rail service for Churchville residents, which will further facilitate access to jobs and help address traffic issues in the region. Churchville really is the best of both worlds – a small town with the attendant small town perks like low crime, friendly and familiar people and a strong sense of community, but also access to the economic advantages of lying near two major metro areas.
The public schools of Churchville are part of the Council Rock School District. Council Rock takes a progressive and proactive approach to learning; its mission statement state that it is “committed to children and will empower them with skills and knowledge through comprehensive, innovative and diverse educational experiences, enabling them to achieve self-fulfillment and to become productive, responsible citizens who contribute to the world community.” And the numbers back up the words – last year, the district spent over $9,000 per pupil, well above most state averages. And Council Rock encourages outside of the box learning – its website for example has links to external resources such as the Discovery Channel’s Discovery Education Streaming and Safari Montage, a video-on-demand server preloaded with the finest educational programs.
