St. Philip's Academy

 

 

 

 

St. Philip’s Academy started as a struggling charter school serving the children of Newark, New Jersey.  Today the school has grown into a thriving community of students, families, staff, faculty and alumni.

 

To meet the needs of their growing school population, the Academy converted an abandoned factory building in Newark into a state-of-the-art four-story, LEED Silver classroom building.  Illumination Arts designed the lighting for the media center and library; science laboratories and classrooms; an indoor/outdoor gymnasium and theater facility; contemporary dining facilities; and a rooftop garden.  The signature, illuminated architectural feature is a four-story high glass lantern, rising above the doors of the school and establishing it as a presence in the community.
