Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy of education reflects in every way a Christian philosophy of life. We are God-centered. We honor God as the physical Enabler and spiritual Motivator for pursuing knowledge. We recognize that it is God and His world, which is the object of our learning.
† It is our goal that each child will develop their own unique God-given personality, have a positive awareness of their place in the world around them and an appreciation for their environment through a multi-sensory approach.
† It is our intention to provide opportunities for the whole child to develop spiritually, physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually through a literate, interactive environment.
† We espouse the developmental point of view that the physical, social and intellectual aspects of development depend on and support each other. The Developmental point of view appreciates and anticipates that readiness for any task has its roots in the biological/maturational level of the child. Therefore we cannot produce, speed up or ignore maturational readiness.
† We strive to recognize and meet the challenges of responding to each child’s level of development appropriately and with initiative.
Furthermore, the founding directors of PCA desired to establish a program where children could learn of God’s love, be taught by committed Christians, and do so in a peaceful loving and kind environment. Today those desires remain a constant in the learning plan."
