AIM Academy is excited to announce that this year's commencement speaker for our June 7th Graduation will be Daniel Joseph, a Principle Special Effects and Illusion Designer at Walt Disney Imagineering.

Conshohocken, PA - This year, AIM Academy’s 142 high school students were welcomed back to school into an entirely new space for learning, the Upper School Collaborative, a 10,000 square-foot dynamic space constructed this summer on the third floor of the Conshohocken school’s historic main building.
Elected officials, AIM trustees and representatives from architects Blackney Hayes Architects and contractor Wohlsen Construction, joined students, faculty, staff and guests at a ribbon cutting for the new space on September 4th. Construction of this transformed space began in June and was funded in part by a $500,000 state RACP grant.
During the ceremony, Nedia Ralston, Gov. Tom Wolf’s Philadelphia Representative, state Rep. Mary Jo Daley, and state Sen. Vincent Hughes’ chief of staff Marcella Daniels both shared their excitement at seeing the changes at AIM and of the strides AIM is making to improving outcomes for all children.
