What We Do
Philadelphia Academies, Inc.

Today our programming focuses on Workforce Development Initiatives, Teacher & School Leader Support, and real-world Career Experiences. These efforts are designed to drive successful student outcomes with a particular focus on generating post-secondary opportunities better suited to achieving our mission.
