New! High School Uniforms for 2017-2018 School Year
At Palmetto Christian Academy, our desire is to foster excellence and distinction in every area of our school as we work to honor God through all areas of our lives. We aspire for our external appearance to represent that standard as well. Therefore, we have decided to raise the standard of appearance by introducing required uniforms for high school students beginning in the fall of 2017. We believe this will have a positive impact on academic performance, attitude, and overall excellence.
We have selected Dennis School Uniforms as our exclusive vendor for PCA's high school uniforms. Dennis School Uniforms is a respected manufacturer and supplier of school uniforms across the country. As we researched uniform companies, we found Dennis Uniforms is known for excellent customer service and high quality uniforms. We hope your student is excited to showcase our school unity and pride throughout the community.
