Juniors Explore Options With Fall College Tour

main image

For this year's Fall College Tour, the junior class embarked on a three-day trip that covered the following campuses: Clemson, Anderson, Furman, Wofford and The University of South Carolina. Our first stop was Bob Jones University where the students attended a performance of Shakespeare’s "Richard III". Students also attended an RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) worship service at Clemson University and enjoyed dinner with PCA alumni who attend college in the upstate.

The purpose of the annual Fall College Tour is to introduce our students to three different types of colleges--a large state university, a liberal arts college, and a Christian university. Catalogs and mail outs from various schools are an introduction to college life but there’s nothing quite like setting foot on the campus and walking the grounds yourself. A campus tour gives you a much more personal sense of the college and how you see yourself (or not) spending years there. The students also gained valuable information such as what questions to ask about a campus, the cost of a degree program, and academic majors and minors.

When asked what he enjoyed most about the trip, Blaise Sorensen said, “It was really fun to tour the schools together.”

Bella De Los Reyes enjoyed the Richard III performance at Bob Jones, "It was cool to see the play especially after reading it in class. I enjoyed the quality of the actors, especially John Michael Cox who played Richard III."

This year's Merry Mart was an incredible success! Shoppers and vendors enjoyed a joyful afternoon browsing through the merriest mart in town! More than 50 vendors, including some of our very own alumni and current Eagles, joyfully presented a vast array of incredible products and gifts! A festive crowd of students, parents, alumni families, and local vendors enjoyed fellowship, shopping, and a fun cake walk on the campus of Palmetto Christian Academy. It was a huge success and a wonderful beginning to the holiday season. Thank you to our talented vendors and to our many shoppers who joined us this year! A special thanks to Brantli McMillan, Margaret O'Hanley, PTF, and their team of extraordinary volunteers for a fabulous 6th Annual Merry Mart!
