“Lunchtime” Online Payment System

Philadelphia Academy Charter School offers the secure, convenient and easy online LunchTime pre- payment web service. Using this program allows you to monitor your student’s lunch purchases, set up an automatic account replenishment and email notification (if you choose to do so) and to set up student purchase or meal limits. If you wish to try the online demo, please visit LunchTime Software.

LunchTime is a computerized debit system allowing you to pay in advance for meals. The system works with a personal identification number (PIN) pad located at the end of the serving line. The student enters their PIN and their purchase amount is deducted from the funded debit account. We encourage you to take advantage of funding your student’s account through one of the payment options. As the account is used, purchases are automatically deducted. There is no limit on the amount of money that can be deposited, but the minimum deposit is $10.
