About

Philip’s Academy Charter School Newark is committed to helping its young men and women, with love and support, to build a strong foundation for life. At Philip’s Academy, learning happens everywhere, both inside and outside the classroom. Teachers teach the standard curriculum—math, science and history—at the same time that they instill a hunger and determination in their students to forge their own life path, make their dreams come true, and reach for the best they can be.

Philip’s Academy Charter School Newark was formerly known as St. Philip’s Academy. It was established, in 1988, by the Episcopal Church as a privately-funded, independent school. In 2013, it became a non-sectarian, K-8 charter school, open to students living in Newark and Irvington.


An essential part of Philip’s Academy’s curriculum is EcoSpaces Education, which is designed to help children learn, grow, and thrive. EcoSpaces supports the whole child and inspires him/her to be aware of the part good, whole food plays in the health of their bodies and minds, increasing their understanding of the connection between them and all that surrounds them.


EcoSpaces Education includes the rooftop garden, AeroFarms, the Teaching Kitchen, and the Dining Room.

Philip’s Academy embraces technology as a key learning tool and uses interactive boards and projectors, iPads, and Chromebooks to boost learning. Philip’s believes every child has a spark of genius and that it is the school’s job to provide the right environment in which each can grow. That includes providing classrooms with traditional seating—desks—as well as alternative seating—bean bags, couches—as well as alcoves and reading nooks where they can be physically comfortable while they learn.EcoSpaces Education includes the rooftop garden, AeroFarms, the Teaching Kitchen, and the Dining Room.
