Philippa Hackett – After School Director (pjhackett@brevardacademy.school)
Originally from London, England where I studied my Post Graduate Degree in Education, I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively and teach in different parts of the world including Hong Kong and Brunei. I came to Brevard several years ago as the Assistant Director of one of the Summer Camps in town. I liked this part of the world so much I stayed, and have remained an active member of the community. I have always enjoyed working with children and watching and helping them grow into responsible adults. I am thrilled to be a part of Brevard Academy and have the opportunity to work with the children, parents and staff of our wonderful school.

After School Testimonials

My kids have been going to after school since it began and they love it! If I pick them up earlier than expected, they’re always disappointed. They love the friends they get to make from different grades, the games they play, and all the fun legos there are to build with. As a mom, I love that their homework is almost always completely finished when I pick them up and that they’ve had a snack.
Ms. Hackett is always so present and available to the kids. She notices when my kids have an “off” day and while she doesn’t allow any nonsense or disrespect, she meets them where they are and is a compassionate presence, even when they are being difficult. All the other staff that have been there follow her lead and do a wonderful job of encouraging and motivating my kids.
I’m so grateful for this program at Brevard Academy. It makes my days simpler and my kids happier.

After-school  has been a godsend for us, as we can rarely get to the Academy by 3:00, and it’s great not to have to transport our child from one place to another in the middle of a workday. I appreciate that snacks are provided and that kids have both an opportunity to exercise and time and space to complete homework. I also appreciate that all age levels are together: this has been invaluable social experience for my son, who is an only child. The teachers are loving and responsible, and my son has really enjoyed playing games and building Lego structures with new friends.

My daughter is in first has attended the after school program since it began last year. Her favorite part about the after school program is that she gets to know children that are not in her class or in her grade. She has made several friends through this program and looks forward to seeing them each day after school.  As a parent, I appreciate and recommend the after school program because I know my daughter is in a familiar, safe, and caring environment, she gets a head start on homework, and she has free time outside or in the gym.
