About Personalized, Competency Based Learning (PCBL)

Personalized, competency-based learning is an educational approach that is designed to make learning flexible and focused on individual needs and abilities. PCBL prioritizes the following ideas:
 
  • Personalized: All students follow an individualized plan for learning by making informed decisions on what, how, and when to interact with course concepts.
  • Self-Paced: Students move through content at a pace that matches their own needs. The journey is about gaining true understanding before rushing to new material. Students can move at an accelerated pace or take additional time to master concepts.
  • Competency-Based: Assessment is a meaningful, empowering, positive process for learning that focuses on mastering specific skills. Students progress when competency is proven through demonstration of skill.
  • Mentorship: Teachers are available to mentor through timely feedback, customized support, and guidance. Each student has a personalized coach for their learning process.
  • Authenticity: Students engage in project-based learning and practical application of skill to demonstrate understanding.
This opportunity allows students to apply knowledge in authentic contexts in preparation for lifelong success.
