As the first school in the Philip’s Education Partners network, Philip’s Academy, Newark originally opened its doors as an independent school. Established in small schoolhouse serving fifth and sixth grades in 1988, our campus has since grown to accommodate more than 400 students in grades Pre-K through 8.
Philip’s Academy, Paterson opened its doors in 2016 with its founding Kindergarten class. It has since added a first grade and will grow steadily until reaching full capacity as a K-8 school. Serving the greater Paterson community, Philip’s Academy has already made an impact with its small class sizes and strong parent community.
The Philip’s Academy Charter School mission is to provide a moral and rigorous education to a diverse student body, accomplished in an exploratory, technology infused educational environment that embraces innovative instruction and individual attention that will allow our students to build strong academic foundations, while developing a commitment to social justice, environmental sustainability, and personal virtue.
