Small Group Program

Small groups will consist of 3-5 students only. Groups will meet once a week for 3 months at an agreed upon location. Small group demands self-accountability, educational and personal responsibility from each student. PFD has an amazing way of exposing every student’s strengths and weaknesses. It is up to each student and their parents to not only recognize these attributes, but to acknowledge them. When weaknesses are identified, we put together a plan to make them stronger so weaknesses do not define the child. We take the strengths and show each student how to use their strengths to take them to unimaginable levels of achievement.
