We exist to form a partnership with parents and provide a strong spiritual foundation to children in a loving, nurturing, and Christ-centered environment of discovery and learning.
Palm Beach Christian Academy is a ministry of Family Church that serves families at our downtown West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Jupiter Farms campuses. We share a common philosophy based upon an understanding of the needs of children. To elaborate, 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 child, and to promote intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth.
Palm Beach Christian Academy offers an enriched learning environment for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary schoolers. Furthermore, we provide developmentally appropriate curriculum for ages six weeks old through elementary. This includes a comprehensive curriculum utilizing multiple sources: ACSI, The Creative Curriculum, BJU Press, A Beka, Pearson, McGraw Hill, Zaner-Bloser, Apologia, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Our qualified staff ensures that there is a caring and nurturing atmosphere by keeping two teachers in each classroom. The classroom teachers work together with parents to develop a unique network of support to understand and meet 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.
