His provision and amazing love drives each day to be as successful as possible in a safe and fun place here at the ELC.

Mr. A. Atkinson: "Peoples Christian Academy has the immense privilege of being able to offer Christian education in today’s broken world. As parents, teachers and educators we must take advantage of this opportunity in order to bring about radical change and healing, not only personally, but also societally and globally. At PCA there are incredibly unique opportunities to build into and support students as they grow in their faith and develop their relationship with Jesus each day.

At PCA I can see the genuine love and care that the teaching, administration and support staff have for each student. They go above and beyond what is expected, inspired by the joy and hope that only He gives."

The world we live in today seems to be turning away from God, the Bible and the Truth. It is comforting knowing that I am planting the seeds of God’s love and the Gospel in the lives of the next generation! It is also a blessing to watch these seeds grow in their lives. PCA give this world hope and I’m grateful to be a part of that."

Working at PCA is extremely important to me, in that I KNOW God is using me to arm and equip the young minds of today so that they may become ambassadors for God tomorrow."

Ms. M. Cerna: "Teaching at PCA is an incredible opportunity. Proverbs 22:6 resonates when teaching at PCA: Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. I am excited to teach French and show students the importance of bilingualism in today’s diverse world and how fun it could be to learn languages!
At PCA, students get a well-rounded mix of academic and faith:  Dedication (academic) and Determination (faith) which together are super effective when learning!"

Mrs. J. Chan: ""Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6)  I strongly believe that other than parents, the teacher plays an important role in raising Godly children, and teaching at PCA has given me the opportunity to do so.  Also, being able to take part in God's ministry by working with a team of loving and caring staff at PCA, who share the same vision in Christian education, has been a blessing to me, not to mention seeing growth in all those wonderful children too!"

In over two decades of teaching music, it is here at PCA where I find this truth is realized to its fullest. It is for this reason that I am blessed to be able to teach at PCA and share the joy of making music, giving glory and honor to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ."

Ms. E. Flach: "Teaching at PCA is a joy to my heart. First of all because I find pleasure in inspiring students with creative ideas and teaching them artistic skills, which result in many beautiful pieces of art being produced. Most importantly, I love having the freedom to open their eyes to the wonders of the great Creator, whose marvelous works we celebrate through the arts. I further enjoy teaching the History of Western Art in order to give the students the ability to discern which direction society is going since "Art is the mirror of society"."

Teaching at Peoples Christian Academy gives me the opportunity to spread that good news, while also helping young people achieve their God given goals in life. I cherish the opportunity to help young people achieve God's purpose for their lives because I know it makes my work eternally significant. I also cherish the opportunity to teach in a community of believers who also want their work to be eternally significant."

Miss J. Guy: "I love my job!   I have been teaching at PCA for over 20 years and now am the Vice Principal of the Junior Division. When I was in Grade 5, I was a student at PCA and I prayed to ask Jesus into my heart following a Chapel service. I will never forget the teacher who knelt beside me as I prayed to receive Christ as my Saviour. It was a moment I cherish. She later became a missionary in France and we still keep in touch. Today, it is a privilege for me to pray with students, parents and colleagues, and is one of the many reasons why PCA is a wonderful school and why I love my job."

It has been such a blessing to serve alongside teachers that once taught me. PCA is a tight-knit community, where teachers strive to not only teach through Christian education, but also live it out. Students that come into PCA come from a variety of backgrounds. I have the privilege and honour to serve the youth of our school moulding and stretching them to be sent out as the men and women that God has created them to be."

Mrs. E. Moller: "I consider it a privilege to teach at Peoples Christian Academy, an environment where my primary mandate is to share Christ’s love with my students. A great opportunity exists: educating children using a Biblical worldview as a foundation. It is a goal of mine to show my students, by my words and by my actions, that faith and reason are not independent of one another. It is a huge encouragement that as a Christian school, we do not rely on our strength alone to bring about spiritual formation in the students we come in contact with. As teachers we partner with students’ parents and our Heavenly Father in order to train up these children in the ways of the Lord. This is why working at PCA is so important to me."

To know that we are planting seeds that will be sown in God’s time is a blessing that humbles me. PCA has seen so many alumni pass through that have dedicated their lives to serving Christ and to somehow be a small part of that is an honour that cannot be compared!"

It is a tremendous privilege to work with the highly motivated and respectful students we have here. The reason I became a science and biology teacher is to help students grow in appreciation for their Creator through learning about His creation. This vision is fulfilled here at PCA."

It is a place where you feel loved, encouraged, challenged and safe. There is nothing greater than teaching a concept in class, with passion, and seeing your students' eyes light up and the “light bulb” moments happen. It is truly a blessing to teach here and help our students academically, socially and most importantly spiritually. There have been many times when my students have taught me important lessons about life and our Lord, and for that I am truly grateful."

Dr. A. Philip: "Working at PCA is important to me because young Christians are not to allow others to look down on them for their youth. Rather young Christians are to be the examples to other Christians in how they speak, how they conduct themselves, how they love one another and how they pursue purity. Only a Christian education, such as that offered PCA, will actively seek to foster this kind of purity in the heart and mind of a young man or woman."

E. Philip

Mrs. E. Philip: "Working at PCA is so important to me, because the lives of our young people are so precious and the task of raising Godly children in today's society is increasingly daunting.  Most children will spend more waking hours a day at school than at home.  It is so critical that we are entrusting our children during this time to people who love the Lord and who will faithfully impart to them Biblical truths and values. It is such a privilege to be part of a ministry that seeks to do just that.

I personally see the fruit of PCA's ministry as my own children come home from PCA with worship songs and Bible stories on their lips.  I know that what they are learning at home is being daily reinforced in a loving, Christian environment that will provide a solid foundation for life."

Being able to contribute in God's work and witnessing how He works in the hearts of the little ones & families every day is such an amazing yet humbling experience!"

Children are the future and I believe wholeheartedly that we must instill in them a sense of purpose, love and hope. The most important element of teaching children is providing a safe environment for them to grow and learn, an environment in which they feel free to develop and contribute to their own learning. PCA provides a learning environment intended to foster the development and growth of the whole person (body, spirit, and mind), equipping future generations to reach the whole world for Christ. I am privileged to be part of this amazing mission."

  • I certainly did benefit from my years at PCA. The opportunity to be involved with student council, sports teams, musicals, and a singing ensemble that ministered in various Toronto churches combined with weekly chapel services and great courses taught by dedicated teachers all combined for a great high school experience. I serve as the Pastor of Church Networking at Peoples Church where I work with church planters and pastors to support their churches with training and volunteers to advance their outreach in Toronto. I'm also a regional mobilizer with C2C network (www.c2cnetwork.ca) which is a national church planting network.

  • I am a PCA lifer (I went to this school from K-12)! Not only has this school taught me about following Jesus, it has also given me several opportunities to practically live out following Jesus.  I had opportunities to serve my local community and also go abroad on short-term mission trips to Senegal, Africa, Chiang Mai, Thailand, and Tijuana, Mexico.  These experiences let me see what missionaries do on the field and inspired me to follow suit.  One of my favourite things about PCA, however, is the teachers who invested in me, mentored me, and walked with me.  I would not be who I am without them, so to those teachers who have also become my friends, thank you for seeing potential in me, being patient with me, and never being short of encouragement for me.

  • Both of our children attended the Peoples School many years ago and we are forever thankful for the positive influence the teachers and staff had in their lives.  Thank you.
