By staying current with the latest in educational and brain research, along with using current technology, PEG has developed a unique learning model for students in grades K-12. Students move from gaining knowledge and comprehension in their formative years to applying, analyzing and synthesizing information as they move into high school to help prepare them to be successful in college and in their lives beyond high school.
What parents are saying:
I can honestly say that my daughter learned more in this one history class then any history class she took while attending public high school. I actually watched some of the videos and read some of the texts from some of the lessons. I was impressed at the effort that it took from the student to "dig" for answers.

A personalized education program is student-centered - tailored to each student’s learning styles, interests, current skill levels, and personal goals.
Competency- and Mastery-Based
Learning is competency- and mastery-based, allowing for extra time and assistance to master concepts a student finds difficult, while also allowing the student to move quickly through previously-mastered material, and eliminating arbitrary limitations on student progress.
What’s the Target?
The world is in motion, and the information that is true or valuable today could be obsolete tomorrow. Governments rise and fall, old ideas are challenged, new technologies emerge - all impacting how the world does business. Students must be prepared with the ability to learn, critically evaluate, and apply new concepts that come their way.
Creativity and Critical Thinking
To adequately prepare students for a future that is difficult to even imagine, a personalized education program places the greatest value on creativity and the ability to engage in independent, critical thinking.
Self-Cognizant, Life-Long Learners
Students are guided to become self-cognizant, life-long learners prepared not just for today’s world but equipped to continue learning for whatever the future holds.
A personalized education program is student-driven; students take an active role in their education, from the development of their education plans to collaboration with course instructors. This takes student-centered education to the next level by putting students in the driver’s seat. Ultimately, if the goal is to create independent thinkers and doers, then we need to empower students to be part of their own education program. Younger students and those new to a personalized education program tend to need more guidance, but students increasingly take more responsibility in creating meaningful educational experiences that align with their goals and interests.
