ABOUT PUNGO CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Welcome to the Pungo Christian Academy website. I appreciate your interest in our school. If you have any unanswered questions after viewing our website or would like to schedule a visit, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 252-943-2678. I believe you will discover that Pungo Christian Academy is a unique place where educating our students in a safe and challenging learning environment is our main focus.
PCA strives to meet the intellectual, academic, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of each student. We believe that helping each student reach his full learning potential can only be made possible by meeting all of these needs.
It is our policy to promote children’s achievements in all areas of growth and to be the positive Christian role models students seek to find. The staff and I would love to meet with your family to discuss how Pungo Christian Academy can meet your academic needs as well as your social and spiritual needs. Again, thank you for your interest in Pungo Christian Academy.
Marcy S. Sasnett
Head of School
It is the philosophy of Pungo Christian Academy that each student should receive a comprehensive preparation for life. Enrollment in Pungo Christian Academy is open to all children without discrimination as to race, color, creed or national origin.
Pungo Christian Academy provides an education which inspires the pursuit of knowledge and which develops in each student an understanding of him/herself and the world. The school promotes an atmosphere in which students learn both to value and to seek excellence in intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual achievement. It also provides the best possible opportunities for encouraging capacity performance from each student.
Statement of Faith
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by God and are of Supreme and final authority in faith, life, and standards of education. The Scriptures teach:
That there is one God, Creator of Heaven and earth;
God eternally exists in three persons:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
That Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and was born of the Virgin Mary,
That He came to earth and died on the cross for our sins;
That He was buried and resurrected on the third day:
That in none other is there salvation, only through Jesus Christ
That the most important thing in life
is for each individual person to know God
And to have a right relationship with Him.
1. The Academy is a Christian School but not sponsored by a church. Since we have children from many denominations enrolled in our school, our Bible classes offered Pre-K through 12th grade, focus on Bible history and facts, not doctrine. Christian habits and attitudes are reinforced by the examples set by our faculty and staff. There will also be Daily Devotions in grades Pre-K through 12th.
2. The Academy sponsors several fund raising projects throughout the year. Participating in these projects is not a requirement but is strongly encouraged since the tuition pays only a portion of the total operational costs of the Academy.
3. The average teacher-student ratio in our class is 1-10.
4. The Academy has a strong academic curriculum. The A Beka Program is used in Grades K3-8. There is a heavy emphasis on preparation for college for students. At least 95 percent of our graduates (and often all of the graduates from a class) continue their education at one of our major colleges or universities.
5. We at the Academy emphasize parental involvement and encourage parents to volunteer in our classrooms. We have an active Academy Education Association composed of parents and faculty members. We also have an active Booster Club that not only administers the complete sports program of the Academy but also sponsors projects and activities for the elementary students.
6. Because of the small size of our student body and the fact that the school is housed in one building, there is a close relationship among the students of all ages. The older students serve as positive role models for the younger children.
7. The school was founded in 1968. This is our 52nd year of operation.
8. The Academy is on a six-weeks marking period with report cards going out at that time. In addition to regular report cards, students in the primary grades take home folders containing their homework, class work, and tests each week. All other students are given a progress report in each class three weeks after report cards.
9. Hot lunches are available every day through the cafeteria.
Fall: Volleyball, Cross Country, Soccer, Football
Winter: Cheerleading, Basketball, Shooting Team
Spring: Softball, Baseball, Golf
11. Clubs: Junior and Senior Beta, Future Farmers of America, Student Government, Battle of the Books, and Yearbook
