High School

hs-p1

Pacific Christian Academy offers High School students a quality academic program with a Christian worldview. Many students follow the Advanced Placement track and attend four-year universities following graduation.

PCA offers Dual Enrollment courses to qualifying 10th – 12th grade student through Grand Canyon University.   Student may enroll in online AP courses as well through various online companies.

Students begin each year with a spiritual get-away called Advance. This time away provides the opportunity for them to draw closer to God, bond with classmates, and get to know their teachers on a more personal level.  Throughout the year, students attend daily Bible classes, weekly chapels, and participate in quarterly outreach opportunities in our community.

In addition to quarterly community outreach, students participate in activities such as job shadow opportunities, Honor Society, and Student Council. Teachers offer academic support and club participation during lunch.

Vocational Project

Once again, it is time for our high school students to be completing a vocational project. This project is a tool to help students thoughtfully study what type of career they want to pursue later in life and is a Washington state requirement.

Below you will find the vocational letter and individual grades for completing the project:

Part of our mission is training student leaders and servers. We believe that serving others is a vital part of living a Christian life. Community service offers students the opportunity to build their character, understand in a greater way their gifts and abilities as a person loved and created by God, and most importantly, grow their spiritual life.

10th Grade

As a 10th grader at Pacific Christian Academy, students develop socially, spiritually, and academically as expectations and responsibilities are increased inside and outside of the classroom. The 10th grade year is highlighted by the many experiments the students participate in during one of Mrs. Cho’s amazing science classes, as well as the critical thinking and debate that takes place in one of the Socratic Seminars during 10th grade English. Students have more opportunities in leadership positions, whether on the field, on the praise team, in the classroom, or as a student leader. Spiritually, the students are challenged to grow in their walk with Christ in Bible classes which are designed to disciple them and help them discover their individual God-given destiny.

11th Grade

PCA Juniors are given an opportunity to take a giant leap in their educational journey by enrolling in Advanced Placement courses. Depending on the chosen track, students may enroll in an English, history, or math AP course during the junior year. Whether students are on the AP track or not, academic rigor is of the high importance in each classroom. Our goal is for students to be fully prepared for higher education.

A major highlight of the junior year is the action-packed Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York trip. Students have the opportunity to visit Smithsonian museums, the courts, tour Philadelphia, and experience a Broadway show. In each of the cities, students have the opportunity to learn about and pay tribute to the important people, places, and events that have helped to shape so many facets of American history and our world.

12th Grade

Senior......the last leg of the high school journey! This is the year of putting the final touches on each student as they become a PCA graduate. Students are guided through the college and scholarship application process and each is discipled throughout the year to grow spiritually as the person God has created him/her to be. Each one is encouraged to finish the race strong.

At PCA, our vision is to develop students who are servant leaders, equipped with a biblical worldview, and a heart for all people. The year begins with an incredible life-changing mission trip to Dream Center in Los Angeles, CA. Through this trip, students grow in their personal relationship with Christ as well as their ability to reach out to all people with the love of Christ and a servant's heart.

The Senior year is finished with a special time of speaking blessings over each individual senior in a personalized and special awards and recognition ceremony as we launch them onto the next step in their journey as PCA Alumni.

Graduation is personal and memorable as each student leaves PCA to continue to fulfill the destiny God placed in their heart.
