Philip's Academy Charter School Paterson
Philip’s Academy Charter School of Paterson is committed to helping its young men and women build a strong foundation for life. At Philip’s Academy, learning is natural and exciting. It happens everywhere, inside and outside of the classroom. With love and support, teachers encourage students to reach beyond their limits.
While teaching the academic curriculum, they instill a hunger and determination in students encouraging them to forge their own life path and make their dreams come true.
Philip’s Academy Charter School of Paterson was established by Philip’s Education Partners, opening its doors in 2016 with 60 kindergarten students, who were selected by lottery. In 2017, with the initial group of 60 students moving on to first grade, 75 new kindergartners were welcomed to Philips. Each year, the school will expand one more grade until it is a full K-8 school.
