Description

The Renaissance Academy is a tuition-free public Charter School in Phoenixville, PA for grades K-12. Our mission is to prepare a diverse cross-section of children for success as students, workers, and citizens by providing them with a high-quality liberal arts, college preparatory education. Parents, students, and teachers sign quarterly learning contracts in which they promise to work together for student success.

Renaissance Academy was incorporated in the fall of 1999 as a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation with the purpose of establishing and operating a non-profit, non-sectarian charter school in the Phoenixville School District in Phoenixville, PA. In 1999, a group of concerned, energized, local parents came together to draft a Charter Application, which was approved by the Phoenixville School Board. The goals of the new charter school were to improve and to increase learning opportunities for all pupils; to encourage the use of different and innovative teaching methods; to provide parents and students with expanded choices in the types of educational opportunities available; and to hold schools accountable for meeting measurable academic standards.

In addition to a college preparatory curriculum, the school also offers sports teams, a band and choral program, and various extra-curricular activities for students. Admission to the school is open to any resident of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; however, the majority of our students come from Chester and Montgomery counties. Because Renaissance Academy is a charter school, the per pupil tax revenues flow from the students' home school districts to the school.
