Regent Board | Plymouth Christian Academy
The Regent Board at Plymouth Christian Academy has the responsibility and authority for the establishment, function, and maintenance of PCA’s programs and fiscal matters. They are guided by the Deacon Board of Calvary Baptist Church as they establish formal policies for the well-being of PCA.
The Regent Board at PCA is comprised of mature Christians, two-thirds of which are Calvary Baptist Church members and one-third who attend other churches. Each Regent Board member has a passion for the mission of Plymouth Christian Academy and is dedicated to their service to PCA for God’s glory.
Regents are not involved in the day-to-day activities of the school but instead are charged with ensuring that the PCA Superintendent is delivering on Regent Board expectations while remaining compliant with Regent Board policies.
Each year, the Regent Board reviews and updates a rolling 5-year strategic plan that we refer to as the PCA “20:20 Vision” (at present it encompasses key strategies for the 5-year timeframe for school years starting 2017-2021).
