TECHNOLOGY

One of our goals is to provide students with the skills that they need to serve the Lord in education and in the workplace. In order to meet that objective, we begin to teach our students to use technology in kindergarten. Students in Kindergarten through grade two learn the fundamentals of computers and typing, creating simple projects like cards and bookmarks.

In grades three through five, students learn more complex technology skills in Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher, and PowerPoint. During their weekly technology class and through class assignments that require them to use these programs, students develop a proficiency with technology that is required for higher level course work.

In Middle School, students are introduced to coding, design, and building through a program entitled Empow.me. Students earn “badges” for completing various projects using applications such as TinkerCAD, Minecraft, Lego, Scratch, and Stykz. At the high school level, students are expected to be comfortable with the technology necessary to complete their work, including internet research, presentation programs, Excel, Word, Publisher, graphing calculators, and more.

ROBOTICS

An after-school Robotics program, offered to students from grades four through twelve, is administered by experienced parent volunteers. Students are able to participate in three different levels of Robotics programs depending on their age and ability levels:  FIRST Lego League, Parallax Robots, and FIRST Tech Challenge. Students will be exposed to electronic circuit theory, design, prototyping, and soldering, using platforms such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi.  Additionally, students participating in the Robotics program will have the opportunity to design and print on the 3-D printer.

CHAPEL

Elementary, middle, and high school students meet weekly for chapel, which focuses on incorporating the PVCA core values, fostering a personal relationship with Christ, and living according to the Word of God. Students are engaged in corporate worship, prayer, and times of personal reflection and application of biblical principles.

Chapel committees comprised of faculty and students work together in planning and conducting the weekly chapel services, as well as special “all-school” chapels throughout the year.

COMMUNITY

A Christ-centered community committed to developing students’ individual strengths, helping them to achieve their highest potential.
