Our Mission

We believe that college education is a right rather than a privilege, and that every student deserves a chance to pass through that gateway to success in life. Everyday, our caring teachers enthusiastically promote each student as a significant member of the community, guiding them past any obstacles that could keep them from seizing academic, personal, and spiritual growth opportunities. When we believe in our youth, amazing things can happen. Hear the heartfelt testimonies of various members of our school community and why the believe in PMA!
