We exist to form a partnership with parents to provide a strong spiritual foundation to children in a loving nurturing, Christ-centered environment of discovery and learning.
Palm Beach Christian Academy is a ministry of the First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach. We share a common philosophy based upon an understanding of the needs of children. Children learn best through exploration, play and discovery. As children pass through stages of development which occur in a predictable sequence, we believe it is our responsibility to recognize these stages and to plan experiences that will nurture and facilitate maximum growth. These experiences are designed to meet the needs of the total child, to promote intellectual social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth.
Palm Beach Christian Academy offers an enriched learning environment for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, elementary and homeschoolers with developmentally appropriate curriculum for ages 6 weeks old through elementary. Our curriculum is a comprehensive curriculum utilizing multiple sources: ACSI, The Creative Curriculum, A Beka, Pearson, McGraw Hill, Zaner-Bloser, Apologia and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Our qualified staff provides a caring and nurturing atmosphere with two teachers in each classroom. The classroom teachers work together with parents to develop a unique network of support in understanding and meeting the distinctive needs of each child. Each classroom includes the following center: art, blocks, dramatic play, manipulatives, library, science and discovery. Also offered is Chapel, Music and Movement, Spanish, Physical Education, and a Media Lab equipped with computers. Our facility has three different developmentally appropriate playgrounds, one for infants and toddlers, one for preschool, and one for elementary.
