Portsmouth is a very good school and the teachers are so nice! If you are interested in acting, singing, playing an instrument, or if you’re athletic, this is the school for you! The teachers are amazing and are very knowledgeable about what they’re teaching. Some of them even have their PhD’s! I’m so glad that I’m going to this school and I can’t wait to graduate here and pursue my great future thanks to PCA! They’ve taught me so many new things I didn’t even know was possible and the administration will know all of you by name which is really nice because it makes me feel like I’m known and people care. Here, they really do care about you and how your doing no matter what grade you have in their class nor if you’re a good or bad student. I hope you choose PCA!

The decision to send our children (elementary school & high school) to PCA was the best decision we ever made! Our family has been a part of the PCA community for 5 years now. We are incredibly happy with every aspect of the school--a Christ-centered environment, challenging academics, a wide variety of extra-curricular activities for all grades, a healthy social environment, and compassionate teachers & administrators who are highly qualified and act as exemplary role models.
Safe, friendly and loving! This school has changed our lives. Education takes more than just great teachers (which PCA has), it takes community and a culture. PCA is just that, a community that has a culture of learning, teaching and giving. I am in awe regularly with how lucky we are to have found this school. I know that it is the best money I could ever spend in my life, ensuring a better future for my children.
