About Us

Wonder Academy helps students develop foundations for a lifelong love of God, learning, and people. Our school is made possible by a partnership with Water Street Mission, donors, and many generous businesses that give through EITC gifts. 

We offer affordable, full-day K-3, K-4 and kindergarten programs with a curriculum based on PA learning standards for early childhood education. We also focus on having a nurturing environment where we foster a love of God through Bible classes, prayer and worship, allowing the students to grow spiritually.
