I now have 2 children attending PCA (this is our 6th year). The teachers are nurturing, passionate and knowledgeable. My children are challenged (in a good way) academically and retain the information they learn. The small class sizes help with individual attention when needed and the teachers are flexible when it comes to different learning styles/needs. There is a lot of parental involvement (it's not required but because of the family feel to the school, people just want to be involved/help out)

I had a wonderful experience as a student at PCA. The faculty truly cares about students' spiritual and academic well-being. I also deeply value the life-long friendships I was able to form, as well as the education that prepared me to excel at the college level. As a teacher now myself, I can better appreciate how "above and beyond" PCA teachers go for their students.

i've had 3 kids graduate from pca. two more to go! it's been a great school for my family. love the small class sizes - makes so much difference! some people think that if your student attends a small school, it reduces their chances for getting into good colleges. false. i've got a U of M (AA) grad, a Hope College and Liberty Univ grad, and another still in college. really thankful we invested all these years.

My family has been at PCA since 2002 .. my daughter graduated in 2013 .. I have a son who is an 8th grade who is actually a before lifer at PCA (I was pregnant with him when I registered him for preschool) ... we love PCA .. the academics and sports are wonderful .. the teachers love their students and they love what they teach ... the staff is awesome .. they take the time to care about not only your student but you the parents with love and prayers .. it's family kind of school .. we care about your students academics, their sports ability but we want to see them grow in their love for God and His Son Jesus .. for us that is key
