PCA is proud to offer its students a technology rich environment with Promethean Boards, iPads, and Chromebooks in each classroom. Our low teacher to student ratio allows for small group and individualized learning to take place throughout every day.
We also believe in teaching the child holistically, and, therefore, include several trips outside our community into each grade level. This year, our students have performed at Ravinia and the University of Chicago (as a part of Cantare Chicago). They have also travelled to County Line Orchard, Northerly Island, Iron Oaks and White Pines Ranch for outdoor education. Additionally, we take advantage of the many opportunities available in Chicago, such as the Brookfield zoo, Field Museum, Sky Deck at Willis Tower, 826 Chi, Chicago Fire, Chicago Wolves, and Chicago Sky.
In addition to our phenomenal academic program, PCA also boasts an extensive after school program that includes drumline, soccer, poetry, hip-hop dance, Indian dance, K-2 dance, radio broadcasting, photography, cooking with Common Threads, gardening, and basketball.
