At PAA we work hard to provide classes that our students both need and want. We survey our students before making the schedule to ensure we are providing a broad range of classes in areas that our students are interested. We are a small school doing great things!

PE 10/20/30 - Mr. Ndekezi and Mr. Loxdale
Physical Education is about developing the skills, attitudes, and knowledge to become lifelong lovers of movement. Through team sports, individual activities, and research, students will learn that exercise is not simply something that is done for a few minutes here and there but can be a way of life that allows them to become all that God made them to be.
PE 10 is required for high school graduation and needs to be completed at some point during your high school career. It is recommended to complete it in your 10th grade year. PE 20/30 is optional.
French 10/20/30 - Mr. Ruzindana
Even if you have never spoken a word of French, through French as a second language you will use French to speak in simple terms about familiar things and to carry out simple conversations that reflect life experiences, such as buying an item or making a hotel reservation. They will explore Francophone cultures and understand the interaction patterns used by French-language speakers.
Creative Writing - Mr. MacDonald
Creative Writing is designed to be a fun, survey course where the students can explore their creative sides in the language arts. The course is designed for students to assess samples of quality writing, take appealing elements and apply them in a creative manner, as well as examine various authors and the opportunities available for publishing written work. Various types of writing are explored: short stories, novellas, screenplays and scripts, poetry, speeches, and specialties (practicing different types of genres). It is a course that complements the traditional English courses, helping students to build and transfer writing skills to other aspects of their academic and personal lives
