PBIA offers a full-time, challenging curriculum for K-12 students seeking personalized and academic instruction. We are a year-round, college preparatory program with a diverse and fascinating international student body using accredited courses from a wide variety of exemplary academic institutions.
We have always ascribed to the notion of keeping our student population and our group classes relatively small while utilizing distance learning and online programs with our students. This allows students to accelerate when they can, remediate when they need to, and discover and explore their strengths and passions.
Whether athletic commitments, artistic pursuits, or personal choices require students to dedicate their time outside of a traditional school setting, we are able to develop course loads and curricula that fulfill their academic endeavors.
Our team of educators and administrators work to design, develop, and track the best Academic Plan with each student. Whether choosing tutors and classes or articulating college and life dreams, each student is treated as a unique individual deserving the best we have to offer.
Schedules are designed around people’s activities and lifestyles, yet are organized and structured. Students may study at one of our South Florida Centers, or at our remote locations, as well as with live, on-line and in-person instructors while at home, traveling, or living abroad.
We offer small groups and personalized academic plans presented through the elementary years, and throughout their middle school and high school levels, students have the option of staying in small groups or switching to one-on-one tutorials.
Classes are fun, challenging, interactive, and cross-disciplinary, incorporating mind-brain science, and project-based learning, while teaching vital study skills and executive functions. Reading and study specialists, as well as SAT/ACT classes and college counselors are also available, as we are able to accommodate most learning differences.
Students work with educators who are passionate about their topics and understanding of their students’ needs incorporating the social-emotional learning aspect of teaching that is vital to help mold a full human being in today’s world.
Honors, A.P. and dual credit classes are offered, while many courses are self-paced. Our full-time students receive an internationally accredited high school diploma and transcript, which is NCAA approved and accepted by all universities.

Understanding and designing best practices for on-line and distance learning programs over the years has given us the experience and insight into the world of on-line learning.

In keeping with our concept of self-paced, individualized instruction, we wanted to offer our type of education to elementary-level students. We accomplished this by keeping our groups small and by using different programs for each student.
We provide a 9-month project-based elementary program for full-time students, and year-round tutorials and summer camp both in-person and virtually for all students.
When at our centers, students spend a full day interacting, learning and playing with each other.
Online, our students spend their time live with their tutors, having the afternoons to pursue other interests away from the computer.
Reading and learning specialists are available for one-on-one pull-outs and extra help.
Three or five day programs are available for this program.
We also work with seasonal students and their schools so that students stay current with their programs, while being in a social and active environment.

“PBIA has allowed our daughter the flexibility to study a rigorous college preparatory academic course load, curated with AP classes and college level courses with educators, top in their fields, while navigating the intensity of specializing in a sport. Choosing PBIA's East Boca Raton’s location for our daughter's high school education was hands down the best decision. Truly a wonderful experience!"
