At PCA there are a multitude of extracurricular activities and clubs for secondary students to take part in. Through these opportunities where they can explore their interests, they are able to grow their leadership skills and knowledge. We are grateful to the staff and parent mentors who make these activities and organizations possible!
The PCA Band Council exists as a means for students to take greater ownership over their ensemble(s) and music program. Students will pray and constructively share their thoughts as it pertains to the Band’s social events, recruitment, goal setting, camaraderie, spiritual development and more.
Positions include, but are not limited to, President, VP of Production, VP of Community, Chaplain, Sergeant at Arms, Historian, Secretary, Reporter, Librarian, Quartermaster, and Percussion Manager.
The German Club (Deutschklub) at PCA is to promote the study and enjoyment of the German culture and language. The club and its activities are open to all current and former students of German. Regular meetings take place once a month to plan special gatherings once a quarter. German Club activities include such events as dinner at a German restaurant, baking German Christmas goodies, and “game night” with German board games. Activities will afford current students an opportunity to practice their German in a low-stress, non-graded environment, and provides former students of German a way to stay connected with the culture and language.
