Impact Statement

Prew Academy is a small, non-denominational private school for grades 6 through 12. At Prew, we celebrate neurodiversity, recognizing that students are individuals with different learning styles, skill sets, and interests. We do not expect each student to master the same standards in the same manner or at the same pace. Instead, we facilitate individualized instruction through small class sizes to ensure that each students understands and is able to apply new knowledge and skills – in her or her own way and hat his or her own pace. The Prew program is a proven success: Historically, over 85% of Prew graduates matriculate to institutions of higher learning.

Needs Statement
Faculty and staff at Prew have learned to accomplish a lot with a little. Despite our commitment to keeping tuition rates low (in line with McKay funds), we have a number of scholarship students who come from socio-economically deprived families. In a community where private school tuition for neurotypical students ranges from $15,000 to over $20,000/year, Prew has comparatively few resources to help address our challenging academic goals. Funding is needed to enhance student programs, provide teachers with professional development opportunities, make technology upgrades, and improve the current facilities.
Some current teacher requests: 
1. Chromebooks $800
2. Microscopes $1000
3. New Textbooks $3,200
4. Raspberry Pi's and accessories $1000

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Programs
Description Prew Academy strives to provide students who have different learning styles with a flexible curriculum in a warm, nurturing, “family” setting. Prew is founded on the belief that each student has dignity, worth, and the potential to learn. Many of our students have neurodiversities such as dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, processing disorders, anxiety and other differences that make learning in a standard classroom difficult. Prew faculty use a hands-on approach to teach these extraordinary students. We are committed to scheduling all students heterogeneously to facilitate self-acceptance, self-confidence, enthusiasm for knowledge, academic success, and a commitment to lifelong learning.

Short Term Success Many, if not most, Prew students have experienced bullying, teasing, and other unpleasant situations in traditional educational settings. Thus, they come to Prew with negative associations with school and learning, and many have lost faith in their own capacities as students. By the end of a nine week grading period, 90% of Prew students will report a higher self-esteem and greater enjoyment with school and learning.
Long Term Success At least 85% of students who graduate at Prew after at least one full year of attendance will move on to higher education, military service, or a cognitively-appropriate program of continued studies. Of the other 15% of Prew graduates, most will successfully enter the workforce.
Program Success Monitoring
As an educational institution, Prew Academy is in the habit of providing regular evaluations of student progress. Informal comparisons to student performance prior to their admittance to Prew indicates significant and measurable improvements in passing scores in academic and elective courses. Student graduation and pass rates are summative assessments of the success of the Prew program. Teachers regularly perform formative assessments throughout the school year to measure student progress toward subject-area mastery. Regular faculty meetings allow teachers to compare observation notes in order to catch problems before they become intractable. Frequent parent meetings provide critical feedback necessary to both teachers and students.
Program Success Examples 85% of the students who graduate from Prew Academy attend a college or some form of higher education. Prew graduates include (list successful degree earners, successful careers, etc.).
