Tacony Academy Charter School is a K-12 school located across two campuses in Northeast Philadelphia. We serve students living across the City drawing primarily from Tacony and surrounding neighborhoods.
The mission of the Tacony Academy Charter School is to enhance, support and promote creative and critical thinking as well as the problem solving skills of school-age learners in the making of original inventions as amazing solutions to puzzling problems while mastering Pennsylvania and national standards.
We provide each kindergarten through twelfth grade student the opportunity to learn about the art of invention and applied science. This is accomplished through a curriculum focused on problem-solving that emphasizes the creative process, critical thinking and inquiry. As a community, we empower students to succeed in both college and career by inspiring students to engage in higher order thinking and lifelong learning.
Tacony Academy Charter School is designed to provide an enhanced learning environment for students that includes smaller class sizes and a non-traditional calendar that builds in significant opportunities for early identification of at-risk students, remediation, and enrichment.We believe that great students will become great citizens giving back to the community and the world in which we live.
