The Lower School of Palmetto Christian Academy offers students a program of academic excellence and opportunities for spiritual/character development within a nurturing, Christ-centered environment. Our curriculum is built upon national and state standards and is designed to foster the development of life-long learners.
Experienced and nurturing faculty provide students with rich learning experiences both in the core subject areas of Bible, ELA, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science as well as through a wide variety of enrichment activities including Physical Education, Music, Band/Choir, Art, Library, Spanish, Computer, field trips, service opportunities and weekly chapels.
Administered bi-annually in our Lower School Technology Lab, computerized adaptive assessments (Measures of Academic Progress®) provide teachers with detailed information necessary to target students’ individual learning needs. Measured progress and achievement assist both teacher and parent in understanding how their student is progressing and the skills necessary for grade level advancement.

"I count it a privilege to serve as the lower school principal here at PCA. As a lifetime educator, I have embraced the values of authenticity, excellence, meaningful work, spiritual formation, and a Biblical worldview. I seek to integrate those values into my leadership with the hope of impacting a student's heart so he/she can turn and impact their world. I look forward to partnering with you in the educational process and cultivating these values throughout the lower school."
