NILD Information

Welcome to the NILD Department, home of Discovery and Teach!

Pacific Christian Academy provides the NILD (National Institute of Learning Development) program to support our Student Academic Services (SAS) program. Students benefit from these academy therapy sessions where they gain cognitive, academic, perceptual (visual and audio), and visual-motor strengthening of the brain processes. This training provides the necessary support many students need.  Ask the Director of the SAS program for more information and for fees.



Our program endeavors to educate, equip, and empower our students to achieve their God-given destinies in line with the vision of our school. We purpose to provide programs to meet the needs of students with diagnosed needs.  Accommodations will be offered in the classroom to meet these needs, as PCA has the staff and ability.



According to Jeremiah 29:11, we believe that God has a plan and destiny for every child.  We believe that every student should be able to fulfill his/her God given destiny regardless of his or her learning modality.  




  • Each student with assessed needs will be assisted through an Assessment and Education Plan, which will include follow up and tracking of progress. Children needing academic adaptations will receive those that promote scholastic growth and self-directed learning skills, within the mainstream classroom.
  • Teachers, staff and parents will meet to discuss implementation of strategies.
  • Strategies and accommodations to help students meet educational standards will be developed.
  • We will strive to combine the “heart “of our calling to educate with the “head” of knowledge that must meet standards and criteria.


Students with a 504 plan or an existing IEP will be placed within the PCA SAS program once we determine our ability to serve them and they are officially accepted.  Students lacking an assessment can be assessed on the PCA campus by an NILD therapist or through Federal Way Public Schools. An Assessment and Education Plan will be determined by the staff of PCA.



*NILD is not a tutoring session.  It focuses on cognitive and perceptual weaknesses which will develop independent learning.  Parental involvement is necessary in order to ensure the best results. The sessions are individual and intense, three to five years is needed to see full results of the benefits of the program.   The program is available at an additional fee and according to staff available.
