The Orchard Academy sees our countryside setting and incredible campus as one of the greatest assets that we have to offer to our families and students.  Located on over 25 rolling acres in the Watchung Mountains of Warren Township (Somerset County), we are positioned less than three miles from I-78 and still have the feel of a true country day school.  Voted the #6 Best Place to Live in the US by Money Magazine in 2009 and recently named the #3 safest town in New Jersey by SafeWise in 2014, Warren Township plays the perfect host for our students to grow into their true selves.

While we share our campus with Camp Harmony, the three main buildings utilized by The Orchard Academy are the Main Lodge, Farmhouse and Gym.

The Lodge consists of our Valley View Child Care Center, Nurse’s Office, full commercial kitchen and our state-of-the-art multimedia dining room which, with its 4 LCD TVs, drop down 16 foot screen, projector and top-of-the-line sound system, is a great spot for shows and performances!  Our Farmhouse includes all of our classroom space, various enrichment areas including our art, music technology centers as well as our main offices.  Finally, our one-of-a-kind Gym is carpeted (yes carpeted!) with a ProGym floor to provide a safe environment for play while also providing a great, comfortable space for assemblies and other special programs.  Included in our Gym building are our gymnastics and dance/yoga rooms as well.  Each building has multiple bathrooms and hand-washing facilities and all are air-conditioned and heated.

Our greater 25 acre campus includes incredible outdoor amenities that we take advantage of whenever the weather permits!  Outdoor play and physical education utilize our two tennis courts including our lower court with arena-style seating, 3 baseball fields, a soccer field, and a sand-filled beach volleyball court, an outdoor fully-boarded Hockey Rink and 9-hole Miniature Golf Course.

If there’s one thing we love, it’s PLAY!  Besides our organized sports and recreation activities, Our grounds also feature four Playgrounds, each with traditional equipment, like slides, bridges, and climbing apparatus, but each also with its own special elements: castles, a pirate ship, a giant wooden train and a 30 ft. high US Space Shuttle complex which is only one of three in North America!  These areas provide an unparalleled opportunity for our students to experiment with new tactile sensations and experience new moments of adventure.

All outdoor play structures, including playgrounds, are inspected on a weekly basis by our trained maintenance staff and have passed inspection by the NJ Department of Health as well as the American Camp Association.
