Campus Culture

  • A positive school culture is very important to the success of a school.  At Person Early College, we are interested in all of our students' success.  Learning will be a cooperative effort delivered through caring relationships.

    Culture Characteristics:

    A personalized and caring learning environment where administration and staff communicate weekly regarding student concerns, needs and progression in our program.  The school year begins with an integrated bridge program that helps students transition into their college environment, initialize the positive relationships with staff and each other through team building activities, as well as some fun learning activities along the way.  Positive relationships are cultivated in order to foster success in the Early College academic program, success in future academic pursuits and success in life.  Relationships do matter!  It is through these positive relationships that we are able to help encourage and motivate our students to AIM High! To Always Imagine More!, which is our school motto.

    collaboration between Person County Schools and Piedmont Community College that provides a seamless transition from high school to college and/or career.


    Team Work

    small learning community where administration, staff, and students know each other.  Students learn in a cohort of 20 -25 students per class.

    unique learning experience with a curricular focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and rigorous accelerated learning opportunities.  There are no athletic, chorus or art programs for students to participate in, however, there are clubs and other organizations that students may join throughout their matriculation. Students may also participate in Person High School pep band.  There are no bells and no traditional daily schedule.  A Blended learning instructional model is used that incorporates project based learning and linked learning in all courses. As a result, there are opportunities for mentorships with community business partners, field trips to businesses and colleges, service learning projects (local, regional, national and international)  and activities. Leadership is encouraged through service learning, student council, competitive events, student led conferences, SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) and a character/leadership curriculum. Many of these opportunities take place during the Flex periods and/or  Flex Fridays.
