Senior School Extra-Curricular Activities

The total learning/growing experience in the Senior School incorporates both structured curricular programs and extra-curricular opportunities. Students enjoy a wide variety of such options through which they develop their skills, knowledge and talents as they grow in character. Under the leadership of coaches, students plan and organize events and assume leadership positions such as team captains, student council members and house captains.

The Arts

PCA Senior School Chorus – Fideles

The name Fideles originates from the French word, Fidèle, which means “faithful”. As a Christian school, our Senior School students dedicate weekly rehearsal times as a choir. Our choir meets regularly throughout the school year to practice for special occasions, such as Open Houses, Christmas Concerts, Christmas carolling, and Spring Concerts. Fideles consists of Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass voices. Our goal is to use the gifts that God has given to bless those around us, as well as glorifying our Heavenly Father.

PCA students also meet weekly for orchestra practice. PCA orchestra has at least two public concerts every year.

PCA drama club is a group of drama lovers who direct, act, design sets, and manage stage. The PCA community enjoys its annual performance each spring.

Other activities include Art Club, DECA, Reach for the Top competition, yearbook club.


PCA Senior School participates in several sports leagues including ACSI, TDCAA, SSAF and OFSAA. Students have choices to participate in basketball, volleyball, badminton, track and field, soccer, running club, softball and ultimate frisbee. Our coaches provide exceptional training in teamwork, physical skills, fitness disciplines and sportsmanship.

The PCA running club meets regularly in the fall and spring. Students participate in different races as suggested by the coach.
