About

PHILIP’S EDUCATION PARTNERS IS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING THE RESOURCES FOR OUR NETWORK SCHOOLS TO CREATE A PROGRESSIVE, LEARNING ENVIRONMENT FOR STUDENTS TO FIND THEIR OWN BEST PATH WHILE BUILDING A STRONG FOUNDATION FOR LIFE.

Our flagship school in Newark began in 1988 as an independent school—St. Philip’s Academy—and served many students in the greater Newark area. We expanded our mission and made history becoming the first independent school to convert to a public charter school in 2013.

Philip’s Education Partners evolved from a Friends of Organization that primarily focused on supporting St. Philip’s Academy into a management organization that supported Philip’s Academy Charter network schools in Newark and Paterson.

Philip's Academy has been in the business of educating students for more than 25 years. Our philosophy, that love fuels everything, translates into all daily activities, including Philip’s goal to create the best possible learning and working environment for students and teachers.

We offer a rigorous curriculum—math, science, history—with innovation and high expectations. Philip's Education Partners champions, nurtures, and promotes services that feed the whole child, through programs including Handwork, and El Sestema and summer partnerships with Horizons and i2 Camps.

OUR AWARD WINNING ECOSPACES EDUCATION PROGRAM IS A MULTIDIMENSIONAL, CO-CURRICULAR PROGRAM DESIGNED TO GIVE STUDENTS, TEACHERS, AND FAMILIES THE TOOLS TO LEAD HEALTHY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY PRODUCTIVE LIVES IN THE 21ST CENTURY.
