PCA Community
Welcome to the Parent Advisory Committee

Mission Statement

The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC), as part of the PCA community, exists to offer support and enrichment to the faculty, staff, parents and the programming of Peoples Christian Academy for the purpose of enhancing the growing and learning environment for God’s glory.

Parent Support Team

The primary purpose of the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is to function as a support team, to act as a communication channel between the parents and the school, and to assist the school’s administration in a variety of school-related events throughout the year.

As a volunteer, parent-run group, the PAC works for the benefit of the students and to strengthen PCA’s overall quality of education by:

  •  supporting the spiritual environment through prayer and through the organization of family spiritual support initiatives.
  •  communicating with the parents, school administration, faculty and staff;
  •  supporting educational programs through volunteer services;
  •  strengthening the school community through the organization and promotion of special events;
  •  providing suggestions and recommendations on broad base issues that affect parents’ and students’ welfare

Through the PAC, the teacher, administration and parent interaction serves to promote communication and the development of true community. PAC consists of parent representatives, both on recommended and volunteer basis.   Each year, PAC organizes prayer meetings, staff appreciation dinner, parenting seminar, used uniform and book sale and many other activities. Volunteers are always welcome.

Our parents share their stories:
  • Dear PCA,

    From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to sincerely thank each and every teacher, parent, student, and everyone else from PCA who gave us and continues to give us support and prayer through this difficult time. I am so grateful to have placed my children in a school where such strong relationships are built. I can sleep well knowing that I have made the right decision having my children go to a school that not only gives an excellent education, but great long-lasting friendships, and a solid Christian foundation. I know that the faculty and friends that my children meet at PCA will all influence them in some way for the future, and I am not worried. PCA is like family to me, and I am so thankful for each and every one of you.
    Sincerely, Kenneth Y. and Family
  • Passionate and caring spirit

    One day when my 7 year old daughter and I were on the road, we heard sirens from an ambulance. When I was looking for where the ambulance was coming from, I noticed my daughter was bowing down her head.  I asked, "Are you scared?" She said, "No, I am praying. Teacher said, "when we hear ambulance passing by, that means someone is in trouble. We shall pray for the people involved." I thank PCA for instilling a passionate and caring spirit in my child.

  • We travel over an hour in each direction

    Why does my family travel over an hour in each direction just to drive our kids to Peoples Christian Academy?

    Last year, my son was in a disastrous situation at a public school.  On a regular basis, he either had gotten off the school bus and was left alone looking for an unlocked door to get to his kindergarten classroom, or in the evenings, he would be left helpless at the playground unable to find his correct school bus. This had continued for 6 months, until an old bus driver alerted me of her observation--that it was the school's (not my son’s) fault that he was repeatedly left unattended – nobody cares!

    Furthermore, my son frequently returned home from his old school with art work celebrating Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and Bahá'í’s faith days or themes.  He countered my teachings on heaven with the curriculum-enforced concept of reincarnation, yet Christianity was never presented. Christmas was only about Frosty the Snowman or Santa and his reindeer.

    In the past half year at PCA, however, the tide has changed.  Now, he comes home with Bible verses and interesting materials that have helped him to learn about spiritual truths.  His reading has improved tremendously; he enjoys music instruction, and he feels safe on the school grounds. Everyone from the office to the after-school program staff show true Christian care.

  • Peoples Christian Academy is academically strong.

    It was in these classrooms that my three sons were challenged to reach high, trained to work hard and inspired to think ‘outside the box’.

    Gifted, well qualified and supportive teachers and staff greeted my boys each day. In this caring community, teachers often gave precious time and help beyond the call of duty to their students. Music, drama, tutoring, sports teams, community service and mission trips were all part of the ’extras’. Each of my ’boys’ (now men), greatly benefited from these additional helps, enabling them to become more confident, skilled and well rounded as individuals.

    To my sons as well as my husband and me, it is the long lasting friendships with both staff and fellow student’s that has made Peoples school that extra special place for each of us.

    As a distinctively Christian school, my sons were challenged and inspired to see life through biblical principles and to follow Jesus. Hence, PCA’s influence has formed the underpinning of ideas and values that now fuel my children’s future.

    My hope is to encourage you also to give your child a similar opportunity for growth and accomplishment, by sending them to Peoples Christian Academy. We are forever grateful for this school and it’s influence in all our lives.
