The PCLA teaching staff is comprised of experienced professional educators or talented home-educating parents with experience in the given field of study. All teachers are carefully screened.
How much "outside work" is required?
PCLA students only spend 1-2 hours per week with the teacher in a group setting. The remainder of the coursework is to be completed in the home under the direction of the parent. At the elementary level, homework is limited. At the middle school level, courses are more academic, homework assignments are made, tests are required and grades are given. At the high school level, homework assignments and exams are required. Parents may use these course grades on the student’s transcript.
How are the textbooks chosen?
Texts are chosen jointly by the teacher and the director. Texts are chosen on the basis of their quality, cost, and availability.
PCLA classes meet at Salem United Methodist Church off of Salem Road in Covington. Classes are held once a week on Tuesday and some classes on Thursday.
What type of classes are offered?
Class offerings vary depending upon the availability of qualified teachers. Traditionally high school courses are college preparatory in nature. At the middle school level, classes are enrichment focused.
