Prisma is on a mission to provide a holistic, flexible, challenging, interest-driven education for all young people. We recognize that each learner is unique, and that disability status or prior access to high-quality education does not predict a child’s potential or ability to learn. Because Prisma supports learners in moving at their own pace, making choices about their learning, and structuring their schedule however is best for them, our academic program is customizable for learners with a wide range of ability levels and learning needs. Each learner, regardless of disability status, develops an individualized learning plan along with their Learning Coach and family. When this plan is developed, special attention will be paid to how to best support each learner’s unique needs.
Supports that Prisma may incorporate into an individual learning plan include:
For learners who require more intensive academic or behavioral support, the Prisma team will review individual needs as part of the application process. If you have questions about whether Prisma could be the right fit for your child, we encourage you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to set each learner up for success, so we will turn away learners only if we feel we are not yet able to offer them the learning experience they need. Although we may not be able to accept every child with different learning needs into our founding cohorts, we are striving to increase our capacity to do so in future cohorts.
