Philadelphia Academic School

     Tel: (215)477-1040
Grades: 12 | 7 students
The Philadelphia Academy believes that for children to perform at their highest levels, to become life-long lovers of learning, to live, work and grow with integrity, self-discipline, compassion and respect for themselves and others, they must learn and flourish in environments that honor their individuality and commonality.
The essential experiences we provide will broaden their world beyond the classroom and the neighborhood and will offer them the opportunity and the challenge to develop the critical skills necessary to make the difficult decisions as they grow to become truly productive and contributing citizen of the world.
The curriculum for The Philadelphia Academy Charter School is challenging, well rounded and meets the needs of children who have to communicate, compete and some day work in an increasingly complex and technological society.
