The Philadelphia Youth Organization is partnering with Major League Baseball, The Philadelphia Phillies, and the Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation in an effort to bring a year-round baseball and academic training center to Philadelphia.  The Academy, which will be located at the Marian Anderson Recreation Center in South Philadelphia, will include an indoor baseball training facility, a tournament-quality field, and a state-of-the-art education center.

The sole purpose of the Academy will be to produce college graduates with outstanding character.  This will be achieved through constant academic assessment, monitoring, support and enrichment, along with programs designed to build character, moral values, life management skills, and a strong work ethic.  This comprehensive program is designed to prepare each student academically, athletically, socially, emotionally, and mentally to succeed in college and life.

The Academy is expected to be completed by December 2011.
