Anthony Wayne Academy opened in February of 2012 in the Germantown section of Philadelphia., PA. Students are referred to the Anthony Wayne Academy from 15 Mastery Charter Schools as well as 3 KIPP Philadelphia Schools. With a capacity of 160 students, grades 6-12, our classroom instruction is driven by Catapult’s signature Core Instructional Model. Our program’s staff and students work together to create a positive school culture and climate with the staff participating in on-going professional developments and collaboration for continuous school improvement. Through the student leadership program of ownership, accountability, and incentives the development of pro-social behaviors allows for an increase in academic learning and engagement. Anthony Wayne Academy, an AdvancED accredited school, provides students with the skills and intangibles to succeed as young scholars and productive citizens.
Anthony Wayne Academy is built on the foundation of our Pro-Social Peer Culture. The pillars of this culture include Guided Group Interaction (GGI) on a daily basis—regular meetings of students with their advisors to discuss issues that surface each day either in the home or in the school community—and an established system of student government, by which our student body actively participates in and contributes to our school’s environment, daily operations, and guiding principles.
