PAR EXCELLENCE ACADEMY
Par Excellence Academy is the most diverse Elementary School in Licking County. We strive to create a family environment and celebrate each child’s unique gifts. Our school culture of Health, Harmony and Service is practiced on a daily basis with our “Success for All” curriculum called “Getting Along Together.” Traditional family values attract most of our students by including all ages from 5 to 78. We have a wide range of ages and life experiences with our Foster Grandmothers and our AARP Seniors. Our Foster grandparents come to school every day and serve as educational aides and office support. Their experience, wisdom and patience help create our family focused environment. Our student ethnic diversity is 60% Caucasian, 10% African American and 30% multicultural. We serve both urban and rural families from the 5 different school districts of which we have students attending Par Excellence Academy. The Academy is a Title 1 school which means we have over 85% of our students receiving free and reduced cost lunch. This year, due to our high poverty rate, all of our students receive both free breakfast and lunch.
PAR EXCELLENCE PRESCHOOL
Preparations are currently underway for the establishment of Par Excellence Preschool, a learning initiative directed and preschool age children and their families in Licking County. Sharing the same core values as Par Excellence Academy, the Par Excellence preschool will concentrate of Pre-K students, identifying obstacles to learning and developing innovative personalized solutions that will encourage academic and social growth.
ADULT EDUCATION INITIATIVE
Plans for the Adult Education Initiative are currently under development. Visit us again soon for more developments on this initiative.
Funds raised through this campaign will be utilized to pay off or otherwise eliminate the $2 million mortgage on the “Charles & Nora Noble Learning Center” Building. Securing this funding will allow Par Excellence to concentrate its efforts more effectively towards ensuring building safety and maximizing the available space to accommodate the planned and developing phases of the Par Excellence vision.
