Palm Beach Christian Academy is aware of safety concerns a parent has when leaving their child in the care of others. We employ a security officer who is posted at our Academy during hours of operation. You will see officers checking rooms, playgrounds, and the rest of the facility on a frequent basis. Security and Maintenance staff from both PBCA and Family Church undergo a thorough background check and screening before employment.
