How it works

Phillips Academy is a unique education option that connects students with local educators in an in-person micro classroom setting, usually 8-12 students. These caring educators, called Coaches, own micro classrooms in their homes or other suitable locations while Phillips provides guidance on the learning experience, state standard-aligned curriculum, and a supportive management system.
