PERSPECTIVES PREPARATORY ACADEMY
Meeting students exactly where they are educationally--
Our mission is to create a program that engages every single student. We strive to help students accomplish challenges and exceed their goals in a caring and supportive environment. One of the most important ways that we enrich our students educational experience is by staying involved with our Joplin community. Get in touch to learn more about Perspectives Preparatory Academy.
PPA prides ourselves on three pillars: Strength-Based Learning, Inclusion, and Advocacy. We meet students exactly where they are educationally and build on their current skill sets.
At Perspectives Preparatory Academy, students receive so much more than an ordinary education. We pride ourselves on creating a unique, exciting environment that embraces all types of learners and promotes growth both academically and personally. Students and families are also welcomed into a dynamic and supportive community.
PPA holds a standard of inclusion that encourages growth in all students. We serve a very diverse community. Currently, PPA maintains a 50/50 inclusion model: 50% of our students have a differing ability and 50% are neurotypical. Approximately 20% of our students are gifted or twice exceptional.
Since Perspectives Preparatory Academy opened, our goal is to serve our community inside and outside of our building to ensure that we are advocating for change in education that encourages student and family growth. We want to support our families in our communities as well as self-advocacy for our students.
