". . .Parkridge Private School Spells Success. . ."
TRADITION OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE
Founded in 1987, Parkridge Private School has been in operation for more than 29 years. The Founders, Administrators, and Teachers have extensive experience in Education Alternatives, Curriculum Design, Instructional Delivery and Educational Administration.
INDEPENDENT STUDY WITH PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION
Independent study is education gained outside the walls of a traditional classroom setting. It provides an advantage in that the student can learn and work at times of the day that best suit their family life style, personality, and active learning times. Parkridge pairs this advantage with skilled instructors that utilize specialized methods of instruction and delivery that provide focused instruction undisturbed by the distractions of a classroom setting. As students receive timely feedback, the learning programs advance to more challenging levels, promoting mastery through a continuous one-on-one student teacher experience.
WHAT IS OFFERED AND HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
Parkridge specializes in a Distance Learning and Independent Study approaches to learning. K-12 instruction is delivered in a one-on-one setting under the direction of credentialed teachers and tutors. The curriculum is aligned to the California State and Common Core Standards with a special focus on experiential learning. Each week the student arrives with the prior week’s assignments completed. They review the previous week and receive instruction on the new assignments. Assignments are completed at home. We are neither the traditional “Brick and Mortar” school nor are we a fully Digital School, offering instruction exclusively through online delivery. Rather, we offer the best of both worlds: personal instruction with web-based resources. We focus on individual student needs, personal learning styles and future goals. All Final tests are proctored. Our textbooks are available in either traditional hardbound copy or on-line versions. Web-based tutorials and software are combined with a curriculum rich in content and personalized to the specific needs of every student. Students receive a state of the art home based education experience.
WHO BENEFITS FROM INDEPENDENT STUDY?
The flexibility of Parkridge courses appeals to students who are traveling, homebound, gifted, challenged, new to the American culture, or traditionally home-schooled, as well as to part-time students who wish to make up credits or accelerate their education. Thousands of students have graduated from Parkridge over the last 29 years and successfully advanced into the workplace, chosen vocation and/or college career path and fulfilled their dreams.
