I am a proud graduate of PCA from 1991. Even now, in my late 40's, I take time regularly to stop and thank my parents for sending me here for my High School years. Because I was the shy, nervous one in my family... I thought I would never make friends when I went to public school. But here, at PCA, from the very beginning, we were all one big family. And in good times, and not-so-good times too, we always had a listening friend to help us get through it all. And a wonderful body of learning that taught us about the Bible, the Christian life, and loving our fellow man. Amen! I will be thankful the rest of my life for all that PCA gave to my heart and soul. :)

My son has been attending PCA since kindergarten. He is currently 10 years old & now plays 4 instruments, all of which he learned through the music program at PCA! I love the small class size and how the teachers interact with all the children. I love the individual attention my son receives when he is learning something particularly stressing and all of his teachers make sure he can understand what he is learning. The teachers are very involved with their students and keep the parents involved in how their child is doing in class. I love the family environment that PCA has. My son isn`t just a student, he`s family. The teachers watch out for the children & are invested in their education & how the lucky grow up. I am a single parent & I don`t have a large income so I thought private school was going to be out of the question. I looked at the public & charter schools & was not impressed with their test scores or class sizes. I`m really happy to say I can afford PCA! Other private schools cost 2 X more than PCA for the same education programs & larger class sizes! And their test scores aren`t as high! My son is getting a Christian education. What I personally like about this is that my son is learning compassion. He`s learning how to believe in something and how to have faith in something. I`m not a spiritual person by any means, but I think I`m order to grow up and be a good person you need to have something to believe in. I`m investing in my son`s future by sending him to PCA. I just LOVE this school! If you are considering a private school for your child, this is the one!
