Welcome to the Better Together Blog!

At Portsmouth Christian Academy, we know that we are better when we’re together. We’re called to live in community with one another; to live, to learn, and to worship with one another in a way that brings glory to God. As a school, community is an important part of what we do. We recognize that educating children means partnering with parents, and the Better Together Blog is one way for us to partner with you. You’ll find this blog to be a resource for topics related to education, parenting, and more. Check in regularly to hear from PCA faculty, staff, and students, and to learn about the things that we value the most here at PCA.
