Ms. J. Ayoung: "It’s a blessing to be working here at PCA! Being able to incorporate God in my daily lessons and sing His praises is amazing. 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."

Mr. P. Baidya: "Teaching Preschoolers about the wonders of Jesus and all that He has done for us is of the utmost importance. Instilling the "God concept" at this young age is essential for creating deep and strong roots of faith. 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."

Miss. S. Bhaskar: "I am so thankful to be able to work at PCA.  I love working here because I can share Jesus' love with these amazing preschoolers that I have the opportunity to lead and guide.  It has been such a blessing becoming part of the PCA community and getting to interact with a group of people dedicated to displaying Christ's love in all they do.  I feel honoured that Jesus has brought me here and I'm so excited to see all that He does with the students and the school."

Ms. S. Hau: "I am so grateful that I am given the opportunity to team up with God and other staff here at PCA to make a difference to the next generation.
I truly believe that it is important for us to tell them about Jesus' love and start equipping them while they are young.
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!"

Early Learning Centre staff, RECE

Mrs. J. Kim : "I believe that educators are the first stepping stone in helping children become successful individuals in their life journey.  I am truly blessed to be able to work here at PCA to be a stepping stone in God's special purpose. His provision and amazing love drives each day to be as successful as possible in a safe and fun place here at the ELC. I am very happy to have the priviledge to witness our preschoolers grow and most importantly, to be able to teach a Christian based education to our wonderful children."

Mrs. P. McLachlan: "This is not just a job. This is a ministry and an opportunity to share the gospel and the love of Jesus Christ to the children and the entire family. Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Proverbs 22:6 “Train a child in the way he should go. When he is old, he will not turn away from it.”"

Mrs. G. Ng: "After teaching in many different venues and interacting with so many children it is a privilege to come to a place where we are free to share the love of Jesus on a daily basis with everyone we encounter. 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!"

A. To

Early Learning Centre staff, RECE

Miss. A. To: "It is a true blessing to be able to serve the students and families who enter PCA. It brings me so much joy to share my faith with the students daily and to have the opportunity of sharing the gospel with them. As an educator, I strive to demonstrate God's love through teaching and caring for them."

A. Yan

Early Learning Centre staff, RECE

Miss. A. Yan: "It is such an honour to be able to work here at PCA and to serve the children and families that come through the doors. Working here is such a blessing and I am so glad I get to play a small part in their lives. I am so excited to share the love of Jesus Christ and incorporate His teachings into the teachings here. I look forward to seeing the seeds grow and to see Jesus work in their lives."
  • We moved schools from Toronto to Markham on the great testimony from good friends who have children in PCA. We are so incredibly thankful that we did. PCA has been a daily blessing to our family. One of our children has graduated from ELC to JK, and we currently have another enrolled in ELC. Not only are the staff kind and caring (which is a hope you have in all daycares), the ELC supersede expectations by also coming alongside parents in the building up of children in the Lord. They do this with a spirit of accountability that you rarely see in any other academic institutions; the staff nurture and love, teach, correct, and encourage - and we are constantly amazed at the level of care they provide. PCA feels like an extension of our church family; we feel like that is the case because the of the culture of "living together as a church family" that comes from the leadership of the school.
    If you are considering PCA, know that your children will grow here: physically (my picky 3 year old eats so well here!), mentally (Montessori-like learning) emotionally and spiritually. Enrolling our children at PCA has been one of the best decisions we have ever made, and we would recommend it to any parent in a heartbeat.

  • For four years of my life I had the privilege of being part of an academic institution that unashamedly instills the message of Christ and His principles in every student that enters through its doors. This school is called Peoples Christian Academy and these four years of high school were undoubtedly four crucial years in the grand scheme of my life. Having been raised in a Christian home and a frequent church attendee, I was saturated in the ways of Christ throughout my childhood. From kindergarten to Grade 8, I was enrolled in a local public school that although academically prepared me for the next stage of life, did not create a positive atmosphere for my faith to flourish and it slowly began to diminish. I can whole heartedly declare to you that I if I was not enrolled into Peoples Christian Academy in my grade 9 year, I would not be serving God today. Throughout my four years at PCA I was motivated to rediscover my true identity in Christ. Godly principles were woven into each course and I found myself not only challenged academically but spiritually as well. Each teacher relentlessly invested in my academic and spiritual well-being and I found myself thriving in more ways than one. PCA prepared me for the next stage of life: My foundation in Christ was strengthened and my relationship with Him built-on and nourished. There are not too many Christian institutions out there that have not watered down the gospel for the sake of increased enrollment and political correctness. PCA has unapologetically stood firm on its Christian convictions since 1971 and continues to in 2011. I was honoured to be a part of this wonderful academy and hope and pray that it will be around for many more years to come. -Curtis Legiehn PCA Grad 04'

  • PCA has been my home away from home for the last 14 years. Being in one place for so long during the most influential period of my life had a lot of impact on who I am. In Grade 1, my teacher read books to us from a series called Nate the Great. This is actually what sparked my great love for reading…just ask my teachers. My teacher not only inspired my love of literature, but she also led me to Christ. I believe in Christian education not only because I’ve gone through it, but because I see the difference having a Christian education makes. Growing up at PCA, I’ve heard Bible stories all my life and have memorized Bible verses since before I could understand them. Being older now, I’ve taught Sunday school at my church, and I’ve come to realize that church doesn’t teach children as much as PCA does. In Grade 6, we memorized a pamphlet titled “Share What You Believe” which was a basic guide to sharing what Christians believe, including Bible verses and references, and a prayer that we could teach to people who wished to become Christians. We also had to recite it in front of the class; Bible verses and all. This gave us a chance to actually practice sharing with one another. In various years of my PCA education, I have also had to write my testimony. This further helped me to learn how to share my faith with others. In Grade 10 and 11, my teacher taught us about apologetics (how to defend Christianity). This was material I had never been taught at church. I have church friends who cannot explain what they believe, much less attempt to defend it. Because of the teaching of all my Bible teachers, I have gained a firm foundation that I will take with me when I leave this year. As for the students, I met both of my best friends at PCA when we were in elementary school. The friendships I’ve built at PCA are ones that I will hopefully have for the rest of my life.
