Academic Instruction

The Academic Program at the Palisades Regional Academy is designed to meet the IEP goals of our students so that they can fulfill their districts’ credit and graduation requirements. All of our subjects are designed to meet the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards.

Planning, on the part of the instructional staff, not only takes into consideration the need to meet core curriculum standard requirements, but also to motivate students to go beyond expected norms. Students’ active involvement in learning makes for excitement. Creative writing follows the study of classical literature. Matching current events to historical trends makes the significance of history meaningful. Seeing the relevance of math in everyday living gives it life. Working on individual art projects connects the meaning of art to the creative spirit of the artist. In all that we teach, the concept of taking responsibility, sharing information, and assisting one another is central to the learning process.
