PCF provides less advantaged youth with an educational outlet that inspires and rewards creative expression through an interactive curriculum designed to develop artistic abilities, build future leaders, and strengthen the community. Our academic incentive program motivates students by rewarding successful academic achievement, leadership and outstanding behavior.
1 in 4 students who start high school won’t finish on time or not at all. The figure is more than 40% for students in minority groups who will soon be a majority of our public school students. Many of the students who do graduate are not prepared to do college work and have no vocational skills.
At our Schools we offer an unique afterschool program, middle school students benefit from hands-on work with an aspiring teacher, and college students will benefit as well from valuable time spent in the classroom and assistance with the financial burden of tuition.
