Throughout the elementary years, PCA students improve their reading comprehension and vocabulary knowledge as they learn and review the fundamentals of phonics. Using an exceptional reading program, teachers encourage your child not only to learn to read, but also to enjoy it! Reading skills are practiced and strengthened through activity time for lower elementary grades and through science, history, and health for grades 3 and above. Critical thinking is also emphasized in practical subjects such as math, language arts, and Bible.
At PCA, your child will also grow socially through participation in extracurricular activities including art, physical education, music, and library time. In upper elementary, children study art techniques and apply them to their own creative art projects. Students in grades 5 and 6 practice teamwork and personal discipline while also seeing firsthand the importance of fitness through softball, volleyball, soccer, basketball, and other sports. Academics and character development are reinforced in a group setting as students enjoy learning patriotic, traditional, and fun songs in class.
Dedicated teachers model a love for God's Word and a desire to do right. Students develop spiritual awareness through memorizing Scripture, listening to Bible stories, and singing traditional hymns and modern choruses. As your children grow, they will be encouraged to think critically and influence the world around them by applying Bible principles to every subject.
Kindergarten and Secondary education programs are also available.
