What Makes Hill-Freedman World Academy Special?

HFWA is a small 6-12th grade school located in a residential neighborhood in the beautiful Mount Airy region of Philadelphia. It is a twice National Blue Ribbon School (2006 & 2014)-for overall academic excellence. All students participate in the IB Middle Years and Diploma Program. In addition to having two passionate counselors at the school, there is also an amazing on-site College Prep Career Program fully staffed. Our leadership team works hard to bring more opportunities and partnerships to our school allowing us to have additional support and lower staff:student ratios than most public schools.

Students participate in numerous afterschool activities and clubs including Model UN, student council, sports (soccer, volleyball, basketball, track etc) & music (strings, brass band, modern band, choir, and an award winning Drumline Team!). During the school day, students also get to choose a special elective twice per year to explore activities such as yoga, WHYY media lab, debate club, choir, girls club, running and much more. On top of all of this, the campus has the Germantown Sports Supersite (and additional fields), state of the art Biology & Chemistry Laboratories, full professional recording studio, and a Digital Media & Writing Lab. All students will study Spanish language and Spanish cultural classes every year. HFWA brings the world to our students via global classroom projects, international speakers, and overseas travel programs. Join our wonderful community!
