Your first grader will build upon the foundation of age-appropriate and relevant: social, emotional, physical, and academic skills that they received in Kindergarten.

Palm Beach Christian Academy takes pride in offering first graders a small class size which maximizes the personal attention each child receives. Our experienced teachers integrate a wide range of teaching methods that support personal learning styles and focus on activities designed to help each student grow in all academic areas.

School begins at 9:00 AM. Phonics, Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Bible are vital elements of this full-day comprehensive program. A development plan incorporates ongoing assessments to track the progress of each child.

Our goal at PBCA is to partner with parents to provide a strong spiritual foundation, create an atmosphere that emphasizes building relationships with classmates and offers a program that aligns or exceeds state and national 1st Grade standards.

Extra-curricular activities include but are not limited to Chapel, gym time, music sessions, science/discovery classes, a second language program, and a Media Lab equipped with books, a Story Time Area, Listening Centers and Computers.
