Admissions for K-12 Program
Pamlico Christian Academy admits students of any race to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to all students. Pamlico Christian Academy practices a biblical philosophy of admissions, not discriminating on the basis of race, sex, color, or national origin in the administration of its policies, admissions, scholarships, athletic, and other school-directed programs.
Pamlico Christian Academy is, in essence, an expression of the commitment of a body of parents to provide the best possible training and instruction for their children. Our mission is to instill in each student a love for truth, wisdom, discernment and learning through the use of excellent materials, in an orderly setting, founded on a growing personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Students seeking admission are evaluated on the basis of their report card, references, Application for Admission, interview, and potential to perform satisfactorily at Pamlico Christian Academy. Students who seek admission directly following suspension, expulsion, or behavior problems from another school will not be accepted until they prove themselves elsewhere. The first quarter is considered a trial period for all new students.
- Kindergarten students must be five (5) years of age on or before August 31 unless evaluated for readiness.
- A new student entering First grade must have reached the age of six (6) years by October 15th of the Fall in which he would enter PCA.
- The child should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to the school. Therefore, he is subject to the instruction and discipline of the teachers and Principal in their prescribed roles at PCA.
- New applications are accepted beginning in late January. Registration is open first to returning students and their siblings, then to the public. An application fee must accompany the Application for Admission.
- Screening/testing of applicants is scheduled on an as-needed basis.
- Interviews with applicants and families are scheduled after an Application for Admission is received.
