Pantego Christian Academy
Are you looking to explore another school for your child? Pantego Christian Academy’s mission includes developing students spiritually, emotionally and socially. This covenant school gives your child the opportunity to be a guest for a day where he or she will be paired with a “buddy” in the same grade. Your student can experience what it is like to attend PCA before you sign up! “Buddy Days” are available for 1st through 12th graders and can be scheduled any day of the week.

After School Programs
