Teachers share the truth of God’s Word not only through stories, songs, and verses in each morning’s Bible class, but also through every class taught from a biblical perspective.

With character-building content that reinforces Christian values and ethics, we place emphasis on developing the person that each student is growing to be.

Kindergarten (K4 & K5)

An exceptional start for lifelong learning

Traditional Phonics: Reading is the foundation of all learning, and PCA is known for producing phenomenal readers! Using traditional intensive phonics, children move from identifying letter sounds to reading words, sentences, and whole books. Students learn to read starting in K4, and each student is able to read by the end of K5.

Writing in Cursive: Students learn to form beautiful letters with smooth connections, improving their fine motor skills and their understanding of how letters work together.

Cross-subject Integration: What students learn in one subject is seamlessly reinforced in other subjects, helping students remember what they have learned and see its relevance.

Numbers: Kindergartners learn counting and writing numbers 1–100, addition, subtraction, problem solving, time, measure, and even the building blocks of multiplication, geometry, and fractions.

Life Skills: Students love learning about health and safety, doing arts and crafts, studying character traits, meeting community helpers, learning about the world God has created, and developing motor skills and social skills. Your home and car will be filled with the happy voice of your child enthusiastically reciting many poems, songs, and Bible verses learned at school.

Elementary (1st–6th grade)

Laying the foundation of knowing and doing

Solid Skills and Knowledge: Elementary is the time when students really begin to build their knowledge of the world around them. They prepare for success in the upper grades by forming superb skills in arithmetic and language arts and mastering their understanding of history and geography, science, health, and the Bible.

Spiral Approach: Teachers build on the concepts students already know and incorporate review and application into new concepts. Concepts are reinforced from subject to subject and from year to year.

Critical Thinking Skills: Students use their strong foundational knowledge to critically think, applying their knowledge to real-life questions and developing their creativity and analytic skills. Doing projects, writing reports, and giving presentations, students discover that learning isn’t just about answering questions on a test.
