7th–12th grade

PCA’s liberal arts college preparatory program lays a solid foundation of core subjects along with honors courses and electives. Challenging yet manageable coursework produces above-average state and national standardized test scores. Also, before they enter college, secondary students gain an edge from training in leadership, time management, and critical thinking skills through participation in organizations and clubs.

Technology is integrated in the classroom to enhance engagement, convenience, and the overall learning experience. Students apply real-world science and math principles through technology, a practice that adds to college and career preparation. Digital textbooks are available to grades 7–12.

College Preparation
Subjects and daily schedules in grades 7–8 aid a smooth transition from elementary to high school. Students experience the flexibility of personalizing their schedule around individual interests and the variety of teachers who specialize within their fields. In grades 9–12, the liberal arts college preparatory program prepares students for post-secondary education by focusing on core subjects, practical electives, and honors-level courses. All this combined provides a taste of the academic rigor seen on the college level.

Each fall, sophomores and juniors have the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT reasoning skills assessment on campus. This prepares them for efficient college admission. Seniors take a nationally recognized college readiness assessment prior to graduation. Data from the ACT—the most common assessment taken by PCA students—indicates that PCA’s most recent graduates scored well above the state and national averages in each of the four areas tested. PCA students who choose to enter college or a career after high school are equipped with the broad knowledge base and communication skills needed for achievement.

We have been proud to see our alumni involved in fields such as business, education, engineering, medicine, military, ministry, and law, as well as various trades.
