ExPlore 2017

By: Webmaster|Date: Mar 31, 2017|Tags: School News


ExPlore 2017 is in the record books and we want to thank every teacher, staff member, PCA parent, and friend for all that they did to make this week possible. They took their time to share their expertise and pour into the lives of PCA high school students. Our prayer is that these experiences leave a lasting impact on hearts, providing direction or opening up a new area of study for our students. Special thanks to Matt Rossi, PCA Bible Teacher, for providing a powerful devotional throughout the week. Thank you Matt for your inspiring reminder that God is interested in seeing us “Explore” His creation and that as Christians, we are part of the tremendous story of God’s kingdom.

The following are the classes, field trips, and experiences that were available this year for 9th & 11th students and the remaining 10th and 12th grade students who did not travel to Washington D.C. and Costa Rica. On Thursday, the 8th grade departed for a trip to the Creation Museum, and all remaining 8th graders joined ExPlore.
