K-6 Elementary Private School Program | Plymouth Christian Academy
Plymouth Christian Academy, a K-6 elementary private school, provides students an education that can impact them for eternity. Our well-balanced program for grades K-6 allows our students to gain a sophisticated understanding of the central disciplines of Bible, math, science, history, and language arts.
Additional courses enrich our curriculum by the incorporation of music, fine arts, world language, physical education, and technology. We maintain a high standard of academics with many hands-on, innovative ways of reaching academic achievement.
Our desire is to achieve the highest level of knowledge, skill, and character development in order to serve God and others. Weekly chapels reinforce biblical truths that are a part of our daily lives and determine the manner in which we behave and the choices we make.
Through our Character Counts Program, six essential character traits are emphasized in the student’s day-to-day activities. These traits include:
The year-long Character Counts Program concludes with an award ceremony in which each student is recognized for exhibiting the six essential character traits. Plymouth Christian Academy is an environment that prepares young people academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally in a positive environment that affirms the value of each child.
Our hope is that all students will come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior during their time at PCA.
“And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.” Colossians 1:10.
May God bless you and your family as you seek His will for your children’s education.
Elementary Curriculum | Plymouth Christian Academy
Plymouth Christian Academy Elementary features a small classroom environment with an average of 20 students per teacher. This gives children an opportunity to experience more individual attention to their needs and learning styles.
The students at PCA receive daily instruction in mathematics, language arts, social studies, science, and Bible. In addition, special classes, such as music, art, physical education, computers, and world language also enhance student learning.
PCA aligns its instruction with state and national Common Core standards, all through a biblical worldview. In doing so, our students have the privilege of understanding the world in which they live from a meaningful and eternal perspective.

Elementary MAP Testing
During the school year, PCA students take an assessment called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®). We give the MAP assessments to determine instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year. This assessment is given multiple times each year in the areas of reading and math, with 3rd through 8th-grade students also being assessed in language arts and science. This assessment is also offered to homeschool students at the beginning of the year as a baseline and at the end of the year to measure growth.
MAP assessments are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. With MAP assessments, we can administer shorter assessments and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth.
A total of two and a half to three and a half hours will be the average time needed to complete these assessments. Following the September assessment period, you will receive a report showing your child’s baseline information. Future assessments will indicate the growth your student has made.
