"Eagles Exceeding Expectations"
Palmetto Youth Academy Services
Program Summary:

Palmetto Youth Academy (PYA) is a Public Chartered School which operates on a year-round schedule from 7:30am-5:30pm with free academic-based after school program and 180+ instructional days. PYA uses several different instructional strategies and curricula to meet the individual learning styles and abilities of students. One of the most effective instructional methods used is “ability grouping.” This method allows students to be grouped with peers performing on or near the same academic level in reading and math versus actual grade level placements. PYA students are taught the same SC standards (Common Core).

PYA also offers an enrichment program for students who exhibit above average abilities. Classroom sizes are limited to approximately 15 students per class, which allows teachers to identify any academic deficiency and the opportunity to work more closely with that student.

Additional services include:
  • Resource
  • Speech
  • Occupational Therapy

In addition, PYA schedules several educational and fun field trips throughout the school year. 

Students are required to wear uniforms (strongly enforced) and parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer a minimum of 20 hours per school year.

Extra- curricular activities include: 

Drum Line
Praise Dance
Flag Team
Step Team
Writing Club
Art Club
Girl Scouts
