School Notes

  • Plymouth Christian Academy is a nondenominational Christian School located on a beautiful 45 acre campus in Canton, MI. Our program is more than academics, providing a well-rounded education designed to meet the needs of each student. A strong college preparatory program including AP classes, Dual Enrollment, athletics and fine arts are all taught in a nurturing and challenging environment. It is our desire that our students achieve the highest level of knowledge, skill and character development in order to serve God and others. Parents choose PCA for its biblical worldview, academic excellence, and the individual attention each student receives made possible by our small class size.

Choosing to send our daughter to PCA was the best decision we ever made. She received a great education with teachers who took the time to help and nurture her. She received lifelong friendships and experiences, and most importantly grew closer to God and stronger in her faith. I would highly recommend PCA. It was worth every penny!

This is our first year at PCA and I could not be more pleased with our decision to bring our son there. The smaller classes lend themselves to a high level of academic achievement. The communication from the superintendent all the way down to the classroom teacher has been spectacular. The facilities are beautiful and well-maintained. As a parent, there is no better feeling after you drop your child off for school, breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they are in a school that truly puts the students first, that they are loved, cared about and prayed for on a daily basis.

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.

We are so blessed to have Plymouth Christain! We feel our children are excelling in academics and love the focus and attention on each individual student. Every staff member knows every child and is passionate about caring for them and teaching them. It's a wonderful school!!!

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.
