Renaissance Academy (RA) looks forward to reconnecting with our existing RA families, as well as building new relationships with new students and their families.

Our RA staff family has some new additions this year including 5th-8th Grade Counselor, Rachel Martagh, K-12th Restorative Counselor, Vance Watson; Spanish Teacher, Tiffany Hansen; High School Science, Shannon Knight; Technology Teacher, Susan Ruotolo, Art Teacher, Lisa Swiggard; High School Math Teacher, Ahmed Hamed; and new to the facility team, Drew Beck. Also joining the staff this year is High School and Middle School English Language Arts Teacher, Anna Schenkel who is delighted to be part of the RA faculty. “I have been impressed with the amount of teacher support I’ve experienced so far at the school. It is clear that RA works as a team to ensure the success of its students.”

RA has some fun events coming up in September. We will be holding our 2nd annual Welcome Back Food Truck Night on Friday, September 15th, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. There will be a variety of delicious food available for purchase, as well as a DJ and entertainment by “Grandpa Bubbles”. The event is open to all RA families. To learn more and register for this fun night, please visit the event page located under the “Calendar” tab on our web site.

Another exciting event on September 22nd entails the RA High School Band combining with the Phoenixville High School Marching Band to provide great music during the Phoenixville High School football game. The Phoenixville Area High School stadium is located at 1200 Gay St, Phoenixville, PA.

Lastly, as some may have notice, RA’s long-anticipated playground in currently being erected on campus. The Renaissance castle is now in place (pictured) with more apparatus to follow. We will be so thrilled to see our little Knights soon at play in this new play kingdom.

The RA staff and Board of Trustees are pleased to welcome back the RA community and, as always, appreciate their continued support.
