Through events like assemblies, recitals, concerts, and STEM fairs, students showcase their skills in music, science, and public speaking.
In addition to what students learn in Bible class, they also receive spiritual nourishment through chapel. Assemblies give them the opportunity to perform speech, music, and drama in front of peers and parents.
In chapel, students unite spiritually as they come together to sing, hear Bible-based teaching and preaching, and listen to special music. These chapel services help students focus on developing a genuine personal walk with God.
Monthly elementary assemblies highlight student achievement and provide a platform for student performance. Elementary children experience the energy created as they sing fun songs together as a student body, and individual students are recognized for noteworthy achievements accomplished since the previous assembly.
During regular high school assemblies, student music groups enjoy presenting a mixture of fun, patriotic, and sacred songs. Individual students with special academic, athletic, and musical achievements receive recognition during these assemblies. Additionally, students have the opportunity to advance their public speaking skills as they perform speech and drama selections.
Students taking private lessons perform in front of family and friends at a recital at the end of the year. During private lessons, students work closely with their instructor to choose and perfect challenging yet fun pieces that highlight their personal progress. The recital, a semi-formal occasion, allows music students the opportunity to build confidence, receive appropriate recognition, and encourage one another. At the end of the recital, awards are given for achievement and faithful participation. Recitals are open to the public.
Elementary and high school performing groups showcase their achievements at a Christmas concert and a spring awards concert. The Christmas concert strengthens students᾿ abilities to perform together as a group and celebrates the holiday, and the spring awards concert allows these performing groups to present selections highlighting their skills. Awards are presented at this concert to individual students who have excelled and played a key role within their group. These concerts are free and open to the public.
Students discover a love for science as they experience the thrill of creating their own hands-on STEM project.
Each year, students in grades 9–11 immerse themselves in the world of science as they compete in the PCA STEM Fair. Students select a category ranging from microbiology to engineering and then a specific topic within their chosen category. Carefully following the scientific method they have learned in class, students develop a hypothesis, design an experiment, analyze and interpret their data, and effectively present their findings.
Students from each class are recognized for demonstrating a solid grasp of scientific concepts and exceptional experimental design, and their projects are displayed in the school gymnasium for the public to view. Local STEM professionals then judge the displays, presenting awards for the best projects in each category. Top winners also earn a special school-day trip to a unique scientific venue.
