Garfield Park Academy

Garfield Park Academy is a division of the Therapeutic Learning Center, Inc. In 1992, known only as The Therapeutic Learning Center (TLC), the school opened its doors and began accepting students in the beginning of 1993.
Conveniently located in the heart of Willingboro Township in Burlington County, NJ, the Therapeutic Learning Center began with one student and occupied one rented classroom in the Garfield Park Elementary School.
Before long, enrollment jumped to 75 and more classrooms were rented from the Willingboro Township School District.
We offer a positive and friendly atmosphere where students can learn and advance their education.
We believe that our therapeutic program, combined with traditional academics and preparation for college or the vocations enhances the chances of students with emotional and social challenges to succeed in an educational environment and in life.
Garfield Park Academy is approved by the New Jersey Department of Education as an Alternative School.
The Clinic is also approved to operate under the approval of the New Jersey Department of Education.
