ENRICHING AND INDIVIDUALIZED LEARNING:
In a traditional school, students typically experience a passive learning environment. At PRTA, our students are immersed into an amazing educational experience that stimulates the senses. Research shows that true learning takes place when stimulated neurons fire at many locations at the same time. Our students learn through visual, auditory, and tactile multimedia experiences. They enjoy a social environment with their peers that facilitates positive thoughts and emotions. Students have the ability to excel when they are ready to advance or get extra help, if needed. Classes are tailored around the students’ needs and interests.
ANYWHERE HOME EDUCATION:
Students work from home, our computer lab, or from just about anywhere else in the world. We have had students travel and attend live classes as if they were in the same room as the teacher and other students. Parents that travel for work have found that PRTA provides them with the quality family time that they desire. Imagine the flexibility that this brings to families!
REAL WORLD APPLICATION:
Students often complain that school is boring or that they cannot relate to what they are asked to learn. Our classes are designed to teach students all of the important standards, but using projects and instructional strategies that make learning fun and relevant. Our students are able to choose topics and projects that important to them.
PRTA prepares students with the skills and knowledge necessary to be informed and productive citizens in the 21st century. Our students are accepted into a wide variety of public and private universities and colleges. Some students choose a technical or vocational school to prepare them for their career choice.
SAFETY AND SECURITY:
PRTA parents have access to their students work from home (or anywhere else), giving parents peace of mind knowing that their child is doing well. Our school has very high standards for student behavior and communication. Additionally, the staff works hard to create a caring, family-friendly environment.
From our incredible virtual classroom environment to our amazing variety of Advanced Placement, Dual Credit and Distance Learning coursework; we work hard to find, implement, and create the best technologies available for students. Everyday, teachers and students meet in their virtual classrooms and use these tools to truly provide students with the best possible education.
ENGAGING FIELD TRIPS:
One of the obvious benefits to a home education is the flexibility to actually experience what is learned in the classroom. Those experiences enirch the child’s education and motivates them to dig deeper. Field trips are organized all year long, throughout our communities. Although attendance is optional, we encourage all of the students to bring their parents and siblings whenever possible.
SMALL CLASS SIZES:
In contrast to the large, crowded classrooms found at almost every other school; RAI class sizes are never more than 25 students (and often even smaller). Teachers have the time to work one on one with students and ensure that all students are learning to their full potential.
CARING, QUALIFIED TEACHERS:
Plain and simple… our teachers are the best in their field! They are all Highly Qualified and fully credentialed in their content areas. They have extensive training in technology, instructional strategies, and the content standards. Our teachers are extremely caring and provide a warm, family-friendly classroom environment.
FUN, LIVE ONLINE CLASSES:
Our school is designed to fully engage students into their education. Children love video games because they appeal to the senses and immerse them into the environment. Our online classes, and many of our blended classes operate on a premise of making learning fun and motivating students to succeed. Students enjoy the social aspect of working together learning interesting, relevant topics in their classes with their teachers.
HIGHER GRADES AND SCORES:
One of our core values is that as students are motivated to effectively learn the core knowledge and standards, then they are more confident and successful at the next level. Students succeed in a positive upward cycle of higher motivation and greater success.
Whether your child wants to graduate early, make up missing credits, or just excel; our classes offer the flexibility to make it possible! Please let us know your goals, and we can work out an individualized plan to make it happen.
CHOICES AND FLEXIBILITY:
We understand that families have different needs and unique schedules. We can individualize schedules and classes that meet your needs. Please visit us to discuss the needs and choices for your child.
