Competency-Based Education 


“There’s a lot of opportunities at this school. You don’t graduate until you actually LEARN the work. I talk to my grandma about it all the time. At other schools it would just be “no child left behind” but here you have to earn the benchmarks.”

– Semaj B. | CBCS Student 


C.B. Community Schools is a private school licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to deliver both regular education and special education services to our amazing students.

Our model is competency-based and maps backwards from the Common Core and the Pennsylvania Standards. Competency-based education is transparent. In our model, students know what they need to learn and how they will get there. For our students who have been traumatized, knowing where they are going and being able to see and record their own mastery of benchmarks allows them to trust the process of learning.
