AIM Academy is an independent co-educational college prep school serving students with language-based learning differences in grades 1-12. AIM was founded in 2006 and moved to its current location in Whitemarsh, Pennsylvania in 2012.
The campus is located in Whitemarsh, PA across the street from Septa’s R-7 Miquon station. It is 4 miles from Exit 16A on Rte. 476 and 4 miles from exit 332 on Rte. 76 (Schuylkill Expressway). Students come from Philadelphia and its surrounding suburban communities.
The school is located in a century old brick building which originally housed a mill. The 60,000 sq. feet interior was designed and technologically enhanced in 2012 and includes classrooms, science labs, art studios, Global Resource Center and a dining facility that accommodates family style dining and Mark Vetri’s “Eatiquette” program. A turf field and playground were also added in 2012. The AIM Community Center (ACC) featuring a full-sized gymnasium, proscenium stage, blackbox theater, fitness center and classroom spaces for fine arts, media arts, music and drama instruction, was opened in Spring 2016. In January 2017, AIM Academy purchased the main school building and 4.5 acre campus from Buccini-Pollin Group.
AIM Academy was founded in 2006 by Pat Roberts and Nancy Blair to serve children with language-based learning differences in the Philadelphia area. They modeled the new school after The Lab School in Washington. When they opened their doors, they enrolled 27 students. Ten years later the school grew to 302 students in grades 1-12. The school was originally located in Manayunk, Philadelphia, PA and called Academy in Manayunk. In response to their increasing student population, the school moved in 2012 to a new school building. The school was then renamed AIM Academy.
315 students in grades 6-12
