PURSUING HIS CALL ALWAYSPlaza Heights Christian Academy
At PHCA we are committed to quality care and instruction from the earliest years. Considerable thought and attention have been given to identify the foundational elements needed in order to give elementary children the best possible educational start.
Our faculty provides excellent research-based early literacy instruction with faith-based Bob Jones University curriculum as the basis from which the day’s activities are planned. Our teachers and Elementary Principal work together to implement research-based, best practices for our literacy program, which helps develop a love of reading and a foundation for academic success in our students.
Utilizing standards-based practices, we’ve designed our classroom schedules and activities to complement how young children learn and experience the world. Through multisensory learning centers, hands-on manipulatives, role-playing, and the best practices for learning strategies, our students enjoy a stimulating learning environment both inside and outdoors.
What sets our elementary school apart is how our experienced staff views each child through the lens of God’s Word and intentionally strives to instill a love for the Lord and each other in all that we do inside and outside of the classroom.
Our desire is to
- Grow joyful learners
- Engage learners through play and hands-on discovery
- Develop emerging readers and writers
- Disciple young hearts – daily Bible stories and Scripture memory
- Build social and emotional well-being – problem solving and self-expression
- Become responsible digital citizens
