Palmetto Christian Academy is a Preschool-12 co-educational, college preparatory day school.
Our academic program is rooted in the Christian faith and the classical tradition.
The lower school program of education focuses on a child’s development, incorporates hands-on learning experiences, and nurtures creativity and thinking skills.
Students gain knowledge that will be foundational for later learning- reading, writing, math, history, and science.
Our program includes daily Bible study, early language study, and strong music and art programs.
A Christ-centered program of study encourages students to embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ and to address the implications of their faith in all of life.
Weekly chapel services centered around a monthly character trait is geared to focus on Scripture and issues of faith to help students develop a heart that embraces God’s love and truth.

Could not be happier with the curriculum, educational challenges, and most of all the love and support from all the teachers and staff. This is an amazing Christian environment that reinforces scriptural teaching from our home.
