That intersection is Upper Providence Twp., with a Collegeville zip code. The township boarders and zip code areas don't match up. The Collegeville zip code area covers 3 townships/boroughs ( parts of Upper Providence, parts of Lower Providence, and Collegevile). You could live within the Collegeville zip code and attend Perk Valley, Spring Ford or Methacton depending on your township.
