By: Julie ToddDate: Oct 23, 2023 Tags: Academics, Uncategorized
At the end of last year, we celebrated several retirements, including teachers with almost 40 years experience! We are so thankful to their service to PCA. In addition, we have grown as a school and have been able to add sections and classes to our roster. As a result, we needed to hire TEN new full-time teachers to serve at PCA this year! This was a big undertaking in a tough market, but the Lord is in the details and has His hand on our school. If you see these teachers on campus, please welcome them! They have shared that they already feel at home at PCA and we look forward to many great years growing together.
