Project-Based Learning

ABLE Maximizes Success

Utilizing Innovative Project Based curriculum, we help students to experience and engage in learning rather than just having them sit behind a desk. The creative concepts within the curriculum help ensure active learning. Students and teachers take ownership of the learning.


The idea is simple: Engage students by connecting to their interests and passions using a host of techniques and learning materials that are not bound by traditional classroom constraints. Whether collaborating with peers, engaging with the community,  or interacting with the latest technologies, the environment breeds active learning and produces a depth of knowledge.

The idea is simple: The educational program includes:


• Relationships, Relevance, and Rigor
• Standards Driven Program Accredited by Cognia
• Project-based, Interactive & Experiential Learning
• Instruction that Connects to the Real World
• Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.)
• Classroom, Online, and Community Learning
• Collaboration with Peers and Educators

• Career Exploration and Goal Setting

• Academic Support Based on Individual Needs

• Mentorships, Internships, & Dual-Enrollment

• Personalized Learning
• Edmentum Diagnostics and Individualized Learning Plans

Additional Student Services

Students often require additional support to maximize their potential and ensure life success.  Our school partners with various individuals and organizations to support the whole student and overall well-being. 

These services include, but are not limited to:

 • Counseling
• Psychological and Educational Assessments
• Tutoring
• Speech and Language
• Occupational Therapy


Research supports that many middle and high school students disengage because schools are using antiquated 20th century methods to teach 21st century students.

There is forty years of accumulated evidence that the instructional strategies and procedures that make up standards-focused Project Based Learning are effective in building deep content understanding, raising academic achievement and encouraging student motivation to learn. 



Why Teach Project Based Learning?

Thoughts on PBL


This model helps make learning relevant to students by establishing connections to life outside the classroom and by addressing real world issues. In the classroom, PBL gives teachers an opportunity to build relationships with students by acting as their coach, facilitator, and co-learner. John Dewey supported the "learning by doing" approach to education, which is the essential element of PBL.
