Lower School Teacher and Students

Admissions Welcome

Welcome to Palmetto Christian Academy.  PCA is a college preparatory, covenant Christian school.  PCA serves students in Preschool through 12th grade and has a current enrollment of more than 600 students.  PCA was founded in 1992 with the goal of creating lifelong learners who do all things with excellence as they think critically and biblically. We offer a rigorous course of study.  In lower school, students begin with fundamentals, then middle school students develop logic and argumentation skills.  In high school, students master rhetorical skills and have the option to take core classes at College Preparatory, Honors and Advanced Placement levels, in addition to earning dual credits. PCA graduated the first senior class in 2009 with a population of 16 seniors.  Since that time, our senior class has grown to 31 students in the class of 2017.

The Admissions season kicks off with an Open House each January.  We offer a comprehensive tour and an opportunity to meet the faculty, staff, and Administrators one on one. Beyond our Open House, you may join us for a group tour on each Monday or Thursday at 10am from January – April.  We accept applications beginning November 15 of each year for the upcoming fall school year.  We have a rolling admissions process and accept applications as long as we continue to have space available within each grade.

It is our desire to learn more about you and your family. We seek to impact the hearts and minds of all of our students who are entrusted into our care as they learn to become Christ-followers and servant leaders in the classroom, on the courts or on the stage. In turn, we are seeking students who want to integrate and fully invest in the school with their time and talent to obtain the most out of their PCA experience. As a parent, you will experience an involved community life and a true partnership with us in the educational goals for your child.

I invite and encourage you to explore our website for additional information regarding our admissions policy and process.  I look forward to meeting you and sharing more about Palmetto Christian Academy.

In Christ,
