Welcome to Peoples Christian Academy. Choosing the right school for your family is a significant undertaking and a critical decision. We have designed this site to provide you with important information about our school community as well as guidance through the admissions process.

Peoples Christian Academy is committed to maintaining the highest academic, personal and spiritual standards in the classroom and beyond, through formal instruction, extra-curricular activities, codes of conduct and partnerships with parents. It is possible to maintain such high standards because of the calibre of our fine, experienced Christian teachers, who act as role models and whose instructional integrity and qualifications are second to none.
