Frequently Asked Questions

Does Positive Expectations Academy follow the public school year calendar?

We follow the same school year calendar as the St. Lucie County Public Schools, and we close for the same holidays. However, we have an Extended Care Program that offers care during some of the school holidays. Please see the Calendar and check with our Admissions office (772-466-0051) for availability and cost of extended care.

Does Positive Expectations Academy have a dress code or require uniforms?

We do not require uniforms, but we do expect each child to be dressed in clean, well-fitting shorts or pants, and polo shirts or tee shirts. There are to be no inappropriate words or pictures on the clothing, and no over-sized or baggy clothing. Belts are required if pants fall below the waist. Shoes must be closed-toe loafer or tennis style with laces tied.
