Mission, Vision & Values

Mission: In pursuit of educational excellence in assisting the community, the mission of PCAplus is:

To extend Kingdom education, by using the digital learning environment, to assist Christian parents by helping equip students to embrace biblical truth, strive for academic excellence and model Christ-like leadership to influence their homes, churches and communities for Christ.

Vision & Values

Vision: The PCAplus vision is to offer assistance to all learners by providing virtual educational resources and/or classes of excellence through Kingdom education so that the generations to come will know the truth of God’s Word and not forget His works, nor be taken captive by the vain philosophies of their day.

Core Values: In order to successfully fulfill the mission, Prestonwood Christian Academy will give priority to seven core values. Each core value must have operating principles that will allow PCAplus to put these core values into everyday practice in every aspect of its educational program.

Our Core Values

The Bible

The Bible is the inerrant Word of God that gives direction to every aspect of life. - 2 Timothy 3:16

PCA will encourage board members, administration, faculty, students and parents to be active in a Bible-believing local church and to use the Bible as a tool to implement spiritual development into their everyday lives.

This means PCA governs itself according to biblical principles in...

  • all aspects of school life.
  • our use of financial resources.
  • developing all academic curriculum.

Christ-likeness

Whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Jesus did. -I John 2:6

PCA will employ or appoint board members, administrative staff, and faculty whose actions and attitudes model Christ. Discipline and behavior standards will be based on biblical principles that lead to Christ-likeness in students' lives.

This means PCA will...

  • encourage students to apply the qualities of Christ in their own lives.
  • train students on how to communicate their faith to others.
  • challenge parents to demonstrate Christ-like character in their lives, before their children and to the community.

Christian Family

The Christian family is God’s training ground for preparing future generations to know and serve Jesus Christ. - Deuteronomy 6:6-9

PCA will develop policies and procedures that honor Christian families.

PCA will also provide...

  • training and resources to help parents build a Christ-honoring home.
  • a Kingdom education that is accessible to like-minded families.
  • programs for children with different learning styles and abilities.

Church

The church has been and always will be the instrument of God to fulfill God’s purposes here on earth. The church is the expression of God’s kingdom to the world. - Acts 2:42-47

PCA will recognize its existence as a ministry of Prestonwood Baptist Church.

This means PCA will...

  • operate under the authority of the Church.
  • strengthen the church as one of its main goals.
  • demonstrate honoring the church through its policies, procedures and practices.

Excellence in Education

Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth. -Psalm 86:11

PCA will develop an entire educational program that is based on the truths of God’s Word and the preeminence of Jesus Christ.

PCA will be a safe and comfortable learning environment where students are actively engaged and challenged in their learning.

This means PCA will...

  • employ and develop teachers who model godly wisdom and Christian virtues in their lives.
  • challenge students to develop a biblical worldview.
  • provide an education that combines formal methods of teaching with a biblical emphasis.

Service

Whoever wants to become great among us must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave – just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many. - Matthew 20: 26-28

PCA will encourage students to follow Christ’s example of leadership through servanthood.

This means PCA will...

  • involve students in activities that require them to serve others.
  • teach students the value and joy of service before self.
  • train students to glorify God through service in their local school, Church and community.



Stewardship

But we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will give thanks to you forever; from generation to generation we will recount your praise. -Psalm 79:13

PCA will provide students with the best possible education that will develop the whole child (spiritually, mentally, physically and socially). Every aspect of the educational program must be considered a stewardship responsibility from God.

This means PCA will...

  • develop and operate a budget that reflects biblical principles of stewardship.
  • maintain all facilities in a way that honor the Lord and meet the needs of students.
  • partner with families to assist them in providing their children with a quality Christian education.

PCAplus has played an integral part in my son’s education. He has been able to take classes online and in the classroom. The teachers at PCA are top-notch — excellent skills at teaching the subject matter and extremely nurturing to the student. Cole has always felt that the teacher was “cheering him on” to succeed. The PCAplus staff has been a God-send for our family. They have tried every year to work with our needs, they treat our family as individuals and not a number, and their communication with me, as a parent, and my son is simply amazing. PCAplus is an excellent choice, and I am so glad we have been with the program three years and will graduate with them.

Code of Honor

The PCAplus Code of Honor exists for one purpose, Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, which means: To the Greater Glory of God.

It is our desire to glorify God that unifies us in both perspective and purpose. The Code of Honor serves as a standard of excellence by which we must all conduct ourselves in order to be a light to the world.

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam produces an authentic school pride and cultivates an environment of self-governance that transcends rules and regulations. We respectfully rally around Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam and view our individual duty and commitment as “iron sharpening iron.” (Proverbs 27:17)

Code of Honor Tenets

Perspective

Every member of the PCA community is challenged to focus on an eternal perspective rather than a temporary mindset at all times. Maintaining an eternal mindset encourages our students to put the needs of others ahead of their own and to possess a constant attitude of gratefulness.

Purpose

Every member of the PCA community is challenged to understand and commit to the school’s Mission Statement: "To assist Christian parents by teaching students to embrace biblical truth, strive for academic excellence and model Christ-like leadership." By adhering to the mission statement members of the PCA community understand striving for academic excellence requires honesty, integrity and rigor.

People

Every member of the PCA community understands that all people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. Everyone has value and our focus should be on serving others. This begins by respecting them and accepting them unconditionally.

Programs

Every member of the PCA community is encouraged to actively participate in the life and culture of the school's programs. We are ambassadors for the King and understand that our out-of-classroom experiences during school hours will be supported with respect.

Property

The environment, and in particular, the school’s facilities and equipment, are to be maintained with the utmost care and respect. This means PCA property is treated with respect and we refrain from participating in activities that could potentially leave damage to its grounds, facilities or contents therein.
