In the Classroom

   What do we offer?


Grades K-5th

Low Student to Teacher ratios

Widespread technology use by utilizing computers to familiarize and play educational games on websites such as Starfall, Funbrain, and PBS Kids. We also use educational videos from Discovery and National Geographic Kids.

Centers with hands-on learning experiences in Math, Language, and Science

One-on-one reading instruction to boost individual reading levels

We utilize the A BEKA curriculum as a base for all students and supplemental materials based on the individual needs of each child. This curriculum takes a Christian based approach. It has been thoroughly researched and tested for over 55 years in the classrooms at Pensacola Christian Academy.

Reading, Phonics, and math are emphasized most often in the a beka curriculum. We add supplemental materials to increase student achievement on an individual level. Low ratios provide an excellent opportunity for one-on-one instruction.
