Lower School - K Through Fourth Grade

LEARNING LAB, LOWER SCHOOL TEACHER


The PCA Lower School academic support program for students with learning differences requires separate enrollment. The PCA Lower School staff uses multi-sensory, creative tools and methods to re-teach and reinforce concepts or skills through small groups. Partnering with the classroom teachers and parents, student progress is closely monitored, documented, and reported. Our goal is that the review of content and skills practiced in the PCA Learning Lab setting will transfer to improved classroom performance.
