K-12 Programs

Educational Services

At PBIA, we design programs for each and every student. From student athletes needing full-time programs, to K-12 students needing extra help, we are here to assist everyone who wishes to learn. We match the specific needs of the student with appropriate programs, courses, and educators. We more than enroll students; we ensure that their educators will match their emotional and educational needs.

Our educators treat each student as an individual and work with every student’s learning style. This allows for our students to accelerate through classwork when possible and remediate when necessary. Not all students work at the same pace, and we encourage in depth learning. Our instructional method allows for each student to gain self-confidence and a deep understanding of subject matter.

We utilize the latest technology when students travel or need to be away from our centers. We believe that travel and life experiences are essentials to the learning process and always work around student schedules. 

Elementary Program

PBIA offers a full-time and seasonal elementary program for students in grades K-5. We work with seasonal students and their schools so that students stay current with their programs, while being in a social and active environment.  We also provide a year-round project-based elementary program for full-time students.

  • Small class size with a student/teacher ratio of no more than 5 to 1.
  • Teachers work one-on-one with each student while in a group environment.
  • Extracurricular academics are available.

College Counseling

Applying for college can seem a daunting task. Our expert staff of certified college counselors is here to assist you and your student through every step of the process.

We are an independent college admissions counseling practice committed to helping students gain acceptance to the colleges and universities that best fit their goals, expectations and dreams. To accomplish this, we counsel our students in selecting appropriate schools and coach them on writing powerful applications.

Learning how to interview, building a resume, presenting themselves on paper, and organizing a large-scale, multi-faceted project are just some of the skills that students take away from this process for future endeavors. Based in Palm Beach County, FL, PBIA College Counseling works with students throughout the United States and online. Since not all families are able to take advantage of face-to-face sessions, we also counsel students by phone, e-mail and Skype. PBIA is an institutional member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC).

TEST PREP

We offer test prep for the SSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, GMAT and more. Our instructors are well-trained in the strategies behind standardized test-taking and can work one-on-one or in small groups.

 

One-on-One Learning

Over the past 25 years, we have been blending distance learning programs with a traditional ‘brick and mortar’ center, giving students and families the flexibility of self-paced, individualized instruction within a social and structured environment.

Developed by and for our students, PBIA partners with highly recognized accredited programs around the United States to offer an exceptional customized program for each individual student.

Whether through a hands on science experiment, multimedia demonstration or a spirited conversation, our tutors bring the subject matter to life. At PBIA, our priority is to educate students while catering to the individualized learning needs and goals of each student. We have the advantage over virtual school in that students are interacting with peers while taking online courses.

We offer a gap year after high school graduation for those students who choose this route. University at PBIA is also a wonderful way to pursue college courses and diplomas.

The possibilities are endless.
