El movimiento Pedagogical Academy of learning

PreK-2nd grade Private schooling!

El Movimiento will now offer private schooling to assist with the challenges presented with virtual schooling of young children that will be attending school levels Kindergarten through Second Grade.

Welcome to E-PAL!

E-PAL is a private schooling program developed by our nonprofit organization El Movimiento to serve and meet the needs of our local community in an effort to meet the challenges presented by the Statewide/Regional Social Distancing mandate due to COVID-19 impact.

We understand the need and convenience of having children placed in a social learning environment where they will receive the attention needed to develop their learning abilities by an actual teacher. Our classes are modified to comply with the statewide social distancing measures set in place for schools to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment. We have implemented a block schedule format to meet both virtual and in-person learning recommendations set forth by local education and health field officials. There will be a maximum of FIVE students per class. Students will meet twice a week for 4 hours every other day. Academic subjects and lessons will be staggered during in-class schedule, and homework assignments given for virtual days. Block schedules are for the full class year and can not be altered (except for extreme circumstances (if slot is available)).

Here is what we offer:

  • Low cost tuition based private schooling for children entering grades PreK-2

  • Advanced learning curriculum that supersedes public school state requirements

  • Record keeping and progress reporting database

  • We have a "all children are reachable" philosophy to ensure all students succeed and excel above average

  • COVID-19 Social Distancing practices implemented in accordance with local and statewide mandate

  • We will provide all necessary classroom, and lesson material. Including laptop computer. (students will need to have access to an out of classroom computer/tablet to complete online assignment during virtual days.
