Philadelphia's design-based tuition-free public charter school

In the Classroom

Our 2016 New Year Card displays a student sample from a design-integrated project created by Donna M. Costello, former *CHAD teacher and principal, and led by M. Amy Wischum who teaches 9th grade Algebra I students.

After School

*CHAD's screen-printing club offers students the opportunity to learn all aspects of the printing process.
