We Love Reading!
At Pacific Christian Academy, reading literacy is important! Teachers foster a love for reading by encouraging students to read when they have time at school and also when home. Our library of over 7,200 books gives students a wide choice of books, and allows students to become familiar with a variety of different genres.
Increasing Literacy and Fostering Our Students' Appreciation for Reading
Our elementary library houses age-appropriate fiction covering Christian, classic, and popular literature. We have numerous non-fiction works in biography, history, world culture, and the sciences. Our collection represents the diversity of our students and enables each one to understand and appreciate the many cultures represented at PCA. Students especially enjoy our selections in science and technology.
Accelerated Reader (A.R.)
Accelerated Reader is a WORLD-WIDE computer-based program that PCA uses to monitor reading practice and progress. It helps teachers guide students to books that are on each learner’s individual reading level. Students take short quizzes after reading books to check their comprehension, so teachers can assess if they have understood and can recall detail.
