Pamela Holz, co-founder of Puzzle Box Academy (PBA), has brought comprehensive, individualized, science-based education to children with autism and other developmental delays. To better support the needs of the more than 200 families served, Holz has provided more than $500,000 in scholarships to needy families.
As a parent of a child with a disability and a true visionary, Holz has made PBA the first kindergarten through 8th grade school in Florida to provide the Morningside Academy Curriculum and teaching style, which is rooted in the heavily researched approaches of Precision Teaching and Direct Instruction. The Morningside Model of Generative Instruction combines well-designed instructional materials, fast-paced classroom presentation and focused practice to build fluency. The results are expert and confident learners.
Holz is excited to announce Puzzle Box Academy will be partnering with Liberty University. As part of the partnership with Liberty University’s Online Academy (LUOA), students will be provided:
• A fully accredited curriculum — 6th-12th grade
• Certified teachers/clinicians to support day-to-day academic processes
• More than 60 dual enrollment courses that grant both high school and college credit
• The opportunity to receive an Associate of Arts degree upon high school graduation
• SAT and ACT Prep
By building a company that best meets the needs of students with disabilities, Holz has also enriched and diversified the community through well-paying jobs that have drawn professionals from across the United States. As a result, she was just named Female Small Business Owner of the Year for 2018 by weVenture.
