Welcome! PCA’s Upper School is an exciting time for students in grades 8-12. Students continue to learn through a more rigorous academic program during their high school career, begin to participate in athletics on a more competitive level, and start to explore their personal and career interests. At PCA, it is our desire for students not only to learn the academics they will need in the future, but we also strive to develop Christian leadership skills to empower them as they progress in their educational studies. “Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” Proverbs 22:6
PCA’s curriculum is challenging, and all of our classes prepare students for college if they choose to further their formal education beyond high school. We offer various honors classes and partner with Troy University to offer Dual Enrollment courses for college credit while still enrolled in high school. PCA also provides an award-winning Engineering Academy and Health Academy where students can dive deeper into these industries as desired. These academies and all classes are blessed with versatile, Christian teachers committed to teaching, coaching, and leading our students well. Even though I have only been part of the PCA family for a short time, I am impressed with how willing our faculty members are to go the extra mile for their students.
PCA also offers a wide variety of sports and extracurricular opportunities to give our students additional areas to excel in. Whether it’s sports teams, band, art, theater, or other clubs, we encourage our students to get involved beyond academics. These activities help create a sense of community as everyone works together to achieve a common goal.
It is my prayer that our students grow “in wisdom, stature, and in favor with God and man.” (Luke 2:52), and it is my privilege to partner with you in this endeavor.
May your family have a blessed year! Go Panthers!
