PRINCETON — Princeton Christian Academy will officially open its 2014-15 registration for new students during the week of Feb. 24-28.

The school invites any families interested in PCA to visit classes, examine the curriculum and tour the facility at any time prior to or during that week to prepare for the registration process. The school is now open for viewing nearly every Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., although it is advised to call ahead to avoid any schedule conflicts.

Princeton Christian Academy offers classes for children in preschool through eighth grade with a full range of curriculum and activities. Besides the core subjects of math, science, language arts and history, the Academy also offers Bible, Spanish, computer, art, music, and speech/drama for all grade levels. Band is available for students in grades 5-8. Two plays a year are performed by the students, as well as several other concerts and presentations. Students compete in volleyball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, cheerleading and track, as well as in academic competitions of creative writing, spelling, speech, art, music and science.

Since the inception of Princeton Christian Academy in 1981, the curriculum used throughout most subjects and grade levels has been the highly acclaimed A Beka Book curriculum, which offers a strong phonics-based reading program and aggressive, Christian materials in all subject matter.

Besides high-level education, developing a Christian worldview and ethical, moral conduct in students is a high priority at Princeton Christian Academy. Students are inspired toward altruism and showing Christ’s love to the world by participating in various charitable activities and sponsoring a child from overseas throughout each school year. Caring, courteous and respectful attitudes are expected behavior within the walls of PCA. Parental involvement and open communication between parents and school staff are also priorities at PCA.

Princeton Christian Academy is located two and one-half miles northeast of Princeton on Route 34. Families are encouraged to view the school at any time, in preparation for registration on Feb. 24. Class sizes are limited to 15, and current students have been in the registration process since Jan. 27, so consequently classes may fill quickly.
