School-age Program/K-8th Grade

Downtown Campus and Lake Park Campus

Our goal at Palm Beach Christian Academy is to partner with parents to provide a strong spiritual foundation, create an atmosphere that emphasizes relationships with classmates, and offer a program that aligns or exceeds state and national standards. We believe the classical Christian model of education best supports these efforts.

PBCA takes pride in offering small class sizes which maximizes the personal attention each child receives. Our experienced teachers integrate a wide range of teaching methods which support personal learning styles and help children fulfill their academic potential. As a result of these efforts, 80% of our students score above grade level on the Terra Nova Standardized Test.

School-age students at our downtown campus participate in several programs throughout the year. They take part in a Christmas program as well as a spring concert. Other activities throughout the year include: Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Fall Festival, Character Parade, Thanksgiving Feast, Art Show, 100th Day of School Celebration, Earth Day, Career Day, Field Day, and Book Fair. Students may also enjoy other special activities that are specific to that student's grade level.

Community service and outreach opportunities are also provided throughout the school year, and after school clubs are offered to students who are interested in additional activities.

We utilize the following curriculum: Story of the World (History), BJU Press (Math, Science), Scientific Spelling (Spelling and Handwriting), Institute for Excellence in Writing (Writing, Grammar), and Reading Wonders (Reading, Phonics).
