    "Penn Christian Academy is a dual accredited, highly academic institution. Small class size combined with excellent curriculum and loving, creative teachers yields a joyful learning environment! The ethnically diverse school community is known for its family feel. Meeting individual needs of students and offering many opportunities for academic advancement are signature features. Curriculum includes reading, language arts, math, social studies, science, Bible, Spanish, library, computer science, art, music, and physical education. Students are presented with a biblical worldview and guided spiritually to develop characters that reflect Christ. Spelling Bee, Math Olympics, Science Fair, Speech Meet, music presentations, and International Month Study and Celebration Night are highlights. We are blessed to see PCA s impact on the academic careers and spiritual lives of our two children. Both benefited from advancement at PCA and were then eligible to continue advancement in high school, accrue many college credits in high school, and earn hefty college scholarships. Our family highly recommends PCA to other Christian families looking for an exceptional, affordable education!"

    "Penn Christian Academy has been an excellent school for our son. The academics are a cut above all the other schools we looked into to, and have prepared our son for high school at a level much higher than what a typical 9th grader would start out at. Family oriented surroundings and christian based education as well as the excellent staff and teachers have been what drives Penn Christian Academy for the last 46 years. Our son attended from 3 year old program to 8th grade and I was amazed at how the children respect and love each other from the small ones to the oldest ones. Penn Christian has all the specials programs, music,art,library,gym as well as many after school programs that your child will continue to learn even after the school day has finished. The school also offers a summer camp program that allowed our son to learn and play during the summer. Best decision we made as parents was sending our son to Penn Christian Academy!"

    "Our school provides a caring environment that teaches the whole child. Our children are highly motivated to set goals for themselves and work hard to accomplish them. As such, the students do very well academically, but also know that there is more to school than just getting good grades. They learn to be peaceful, loving, and kind to others."

    "As a graduate of Penn Christian Academy, I can truly say that the education I received there was worth every penny! I was really well prepared for high school and was ready to excel in the highest level classes. The Biblical worldview and foundation that I learned at PCA will also stick with me forever. Thanks to all the teachers and staff who serve there; it is evident how much everyone cares!"

    "Years ago, we enrolled our son at Penn Christian Academy (PCA). He had completed first grade in the local public school, but had serious reading problems, which were not addressed by his school. His public school was planning to place him into grade two, although they could not tell us how they would address the reading problem. PCA accepted him, although they wanted him to repeat first grade. We agreed. His first grade teacher, as well as some "outside" remediation slowly improved his reading skills. We believe that the positive educational environment at PCA (as opposed to the ongoing classroom turmoil in his public school) greatly contributed to his success, as well. Our son continued his education through high school at a Christian school, followed by undergraduate college at a highly-regarded Christian college. Currently, he is a candidate for his PhD in the science field. We believe that his educational foundation was solidified at PCA, through the work of the teachers and the positive atmosphere of the school. PCA gets our thanks and our highest recommendation."
