The teachers at this school are phenomenal and truly care about the students! It is an excellent school academically and, yet, the faculty understands that each student is unique and doesn't learn in a cookie-cutter manner. The campus is gorgeous with walking trails through conservation land and a private dock on the Bellamy River. And there are always school activities which help you feel part of the PCA family. LOVE this school! HIGHLY recommend!

I've heard a lot of people say that PCA feels like a big family, and I've found that to be true! Teachers know each child personally. Older students give younger students high-fives in the hallway. Parents are involved and connected to the school. I love the way that teachers see children as made in the image of God... they see the strengths in every child and demonstrate the fruits of the Spirit in the classroom. I love that children have an appreciation for Fine Arts and Foreign Language at the Lower School. I love that the Upper School students are challenged to maximize their potential as they prepare for college. PCA's mission is clear in from the classroom to the athletic field. It's a great community to be a part of!
My son has been at PCA for five years, from preschool to 3rd grade. He is absolutely thriving. PCA supports him and challenges him in the best way. The teachers at PCA are amazing - they completely surpass my expectations. The entire school culture is a positive environment in which students can grow and develop. They serve students holistically, nuturing academic, social, and emotional development. I highly recommend PCA!
