Phoenix Charter Academy supports parents in the home-based, personalized instruction of their children.
PCA gives parents more choices and involvement in the education of their children. We partner with parents by providing blended learning options, individualized learning plans, state-subsidized academic programs, and supportive oversight. With PCA, parents have access to high-quality curriculums, materials, and teachers.
PCA parents have access to Acellus, a web-based learning system that facilitates individualized instruction. Acellus equips students to progress at their own pace and feel successful as they grasp concepts. Acellus operates on the philosophy that every student can succeed in learning.
As part of PCA’s partnership with parents, we produce a newsletter to keep PCA parents informed about current news, events, and information that pertain to the education of their children. Parents can access newsletter archives here.
PCA provides parents with the resources for testing students according to California’s requirements. PCA participates in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) and the EdPerformance test.
The advisory council is made up of PCA staff, teachers, parents, and students, and is designed to gather input on school improvements, policies, concerns, and events from the various vested members of the PCA school community. Advisory council meetings are open to the public.
Parents can sign up their students for PCA field trips, which are offered throughout the year. These trips provide students with opportunities to observe the world outside the classroom and engage in experiential learning experiences.
PCA provides a matrix to help parents and students determine the credits and courses necessary to meet California requirements for high school graduation or for entrance into a state university. Review sample schedules here.
