About

AIM Academy is the Philadelphia area’s largest college-prep school for bright students with language-based learning differences such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. At AIM, we recognize children who learn differently need to be taught differently and that's exactly what we do for our 1st - 12th grade students. AIM offers students ways to join in and stand out and many reasons to love going to school including: extensive art, music and drama offerings, competitive robotics teams, entrepreneurship & global leadership programs, service learning and interscholastic sports. Students benefit from a rigorous college prep curriculum and a highly personalized program of college guidance and graduate with college credit gained through our dual-enrollment programs with area universities.
