I don't really see that anyone actually answered your question about catchment area boundaries. Your property actually falls within THREE different area boundaries.

First, there is University City Special Services District. Their website is Be sure to examine the 2008 District Report Card.

Second, you are within THe University of Pennsylvania District One which provides special financing and grants to University members when buying a house.

Finally, you are also within the U of P Expanded District. Some incentives also apply.

You are not within the Penn Alexander School Catchment. However, I market homes by emphasizing the positive aspects of these other districts. References available.

I have the precise borders and web links at my office. (I'm writing from home.) Hope this is helpful.
