With this individualized approach, the responsibility of learning is placed on the student while teachers and parents work together to help motivate and support them. As students learn how to set and complete daily, weekly, and yearly goals, they are gaining an important skill, especially when it comes time to pursue post-secondary education!
Lastly, the individualized curriculum emphasizes the student's uniqueness and encourages parental involvement which, in turn, produces academic excellence.
Students at PCA must achieve a minimum test score of 80% in order to proceed to their new unit in each subject. This standard is achievable by nearly all students, as they have the necessary time to master each concept and are not pushed ahead until they are ready. Having this high standard establishes a pursuit of excellence which is highly sought after in the workforce.
