Pacific Christian Academy provides the NILD (National Institute of Learning Development) program to support our student academic services program. Students benefit from this academy therapy sessions where students gain cognitive, academic, perceptual (visual and audio), and visual motor strengthening of the brain processes. These benefits provide the necessary support many students need.
VISION OF PCA STUDENT ACADEMIC SERVICES:
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.
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.
