We believe in the effectiveness and positive impact of experiential education. Experiential learning is a process of making generalizations and conclusions about your own direct experiences. Essentially, PMA provides a context for learning and growth emerging out of a well defined set of core beliefs.
- A belief in the value of personal confidence based upon individual success.
- A belief in the reality of human inter-dependency. A belief that the human interaction which grows out of group responsibility and group accomplishment, is useful and healthy.
- A belief that much can be learned when problems are presented, rather than answers given.
- A belief that maturity involves, among other things, having had real experiences with a wide range of natural human reactions — fear, joy, fatigue, respect, hunger, laughter, pain and love.
- A belief in the value of an intensive confrontation with fundamental natural forces.
- A belief that real growth and personal development occurs most often during times of challenge and not during times of comfort.
