Application
PCA students use hands-on manipulatives in discovery learning.

PCA students use hands-on manipulatives in discovery learning.

PCA works to infuse faith into all subjects while promoting differentiation, 21st-century skills, and a Christ-centered education. It strives to incorporate curricula and enrichment to nurture the diverse needs of the whole student within a family atmosphere. Beyond curricula, students have a range of opportunities through a resource program for struggling students, dyslexia intervention, and gifted classes for high-ability students.

PCA incorporates 21st century learning through hands-on technology in a digitally-integrated environment, student collaboration, critical thinking, and creative problem solving through the design thinking process within the classroom and in PCA's IDEA Lab; a cross-curricular STEM environment that allows students to extend classroom lessons by providing multi-sensory learning. Students in K3-seventh grade are challenged to build curiosity and solve problems for themselves, classmates, and the community.

PCA is committed to growing Christian leaders. Students are encouraged to develop servant leadership skills through class projects, enrichment opportunities, and days set aside to serve others through PCA's spiritual emphasis initiatives. Instruction in core academics, Bible classes, devotional periods, and extracurricular activities, such as athletics, honor societies, and clubs provide opportunities for developing life readiness skills that prepare students for service beyond PCA's campus.

PCA is "Driven Beyond This Life" to prepare students through continuous improvement in partnership with faculty members, administrators, and families.
