Everybody at PCA has a story…

“Sending two children to PCA was … the best investment we could have ever made… Both kids got full merit based scholarships to choice universities, one even got a fully funded graduate school education. Their professors often remarked how well prepared they were compared to their peers.” – CAPTAIN Karen Baetzel, USN (ret), Parent of 2 PCA alumni

“I love that PCA is personalized…that even though I’m in 5th grade, I get to be challenged with 6th grade math and advanced reading. PCA is a healthy, fun place to learn, and it’s setting me up to succeed when I get to junior high and high school.” Dominic, PCA Student, Grade 5

“I loved my teachers. Mr. Beal and Mr. Foley prepared me for college classes and the expectations that my professors have of me now. The experiences I had in PCA’s various clubs, especially missions, have stayed with me. After college I would like to work with a non-profit that addresses human trafficking.” – Gabrielle Martin, PCA Class of 2013

“I thank God often for guiding us to PCA…it’s making a big difference in our lives.” – Parent of Lower School Student
