Philip’s Academy Charter School of Paterson 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 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.
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.
Current Students: 438
Current Staff: 92
Current locations: 2 Campuses in Paterson.

· Love fuels everything
