By participating in clubs, students continue to “maximize their God-given intellectual, artistic, physical and spiritual potential.”
Students in this club will represent our school to guests and to prospective PCA students and families. Members should be well spoken and excited to share what PCA has to offer. Student ambassadors are trained to welcome visitors, give tours, serve as a host for a visiting student, and assist our admissions department. Members must be available on some evenings for information meetings and/or child care.
Once a quarter we will come together and enjoy the sights, sounds, and food of Spanish, French, Korean and Chinese culture. There is a $5 fee per year for members.
