Mission Statement

Bennett Pearson Academy (BPA) is a miniature replica of the global society, bringing real-life experiences into the classroom. Hands-on activities, student-initiated ventures, and traditional coursework combine to encourage student investment in the learning process, engage diverse needs, and ensure high academic standards.

Description

Bennett Pearson Academy, Inc is a proposed charter school, applying to Salem-Keizer School District for sponsorship. Our curriculum blends traditional teaching methods with the innovative MicroSociety Program, which guides students as they design and implement their own society. Students operate agencies such as a legislature, tax and police departments along with 'ventures' or businesses of their own choosing. Administrators, teachers, parent volunteers, and the community come together to teach students what they need to become successful in their own society, as well as what they need to become constructive members of society at large. MicroSociety has been working in 200 schools in 40 states for more than 20 years. Ours would be the first school of this kind in Oregon.
