Penn Christian Academy seeks to provide a solid academic foundation, builds character to enrich society, and encourages a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
PCA provides an environment that is peaceful, loving, and kind.
 All subject matter is Biblically integrated, and teachers encourage growth of the "whole" child - body, soul, and spirit.
