At the William C. Bryant Promise Academy, we believe that all children can achieve and succeed. We work in partnership with parents, universities, and the larger community to develop students that have the skill set, civic awareness, and work ethic necessary to succeed in higher education and beyond. We have several points of pride: Philadelphia Eagles Youth Partnership, Cobbs Creek Environmental Program, Instrumental Music, Literacy through the Arts Program, Eagles Eye Mobile Partnership, and piano music studio (made possible by a generous grant from the MAGID Foundation).

Inherent in any quality instructional program, is a rigorous curriculum. At Bryant Promise Academy, we implement the School District of Philadelphia’s curriculum with fidelity. Our goal is to help students make real-world, authentic connections; thus, making learning meaningful and memorable. The teachers and staff at Bryant Promise Academy take pride in being child-centered and determined in our mission to help all of our students succeed academically and socially.

Our Mission

Our mission is to establish a student-centered instructional program that enables all children to develop academic, social, and cultural skills. We are committed to accommodating all students using common proficiency standards as delineated in the School District of Philadelphia’s Core Curriculum. We believe our mission is best accomplished by shared accountability and active home, school, and community partnerships.

The Playground of Hope: A Partnership with the Philadelphia Eagles

William C. Bryant Promise Academy is pleased to announce that we have had an Eagles make over!  Our new Playground of Hope is completed and ready for the children to enjoy.

Everyone from the Philadelphia Eagles organization was in attendance for the actual building of our new playground. Eagle’s Owners Jeff Laurie and his wife, as well as all of the players arrived at 1:00 and all participated in the building of the playground.  The children of Bryant pitched in and helped to paint the building along-side the players and Eagles staff.

The new playground includes such features as a Sprint turf, play structure, stamped concrete with custom mosaic tables for playing chess and checkers.  There also is new mural artwork both outside and inside the building created by Bryant students in conjunction with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program (MAP).

Events included a live DJ, Bryant Praise Dancers, painting and landscaping. The facelift is wonderful.  Photos and a video can be viewed on the Eagles website under the Eagles Youth Partnership link.
