Spring Garden Academy

Tel: (215)563-9192
Spring Garden Academy purposes to provide a quality service to the families and children of our community in a loving and caring environment that is safe and conducive to good health.
Spring Garden is a place where children of all races, nationalities, and religions can gather to learn how to play while receiving guidance toward a happy, wholesome development.
We provide a quality, flexible program where each child will be assisted in reaching his or her maximum potential in the areas of social, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual development.
We will partner with parents to provide a well-rounded Christian education to the children of Philadelphia families, particularly those who live and work in the neighborhoods of Highway Tabernacle and her sister churches, in an environment that promotes the highest standards for academic achievement and spiritual and personal development.  We have two locations:  18th and Spring Garden (Preschool, After School, Summer Camp) and 17th and Tioga (Preschool, Elementary School K-6, and After School, and Summer Camp).  Spring Garden Academy is a member of NAEYC and pursues the highest quality of care and education through the Keystone Stars program.
