Peoples Christian Academy (PCA) administration, faculty and staff are chosen for their ability to reflect the principles and values as outlined in our Philosophy of Education. These Christian faculty members are highly qualified and dedicated teachers who see their career choice as a ministry to impart Christian values to the next generation of leaders. Faculty and administrative staff participate in devotions and seek to be examples and mentors for the students. A code of conduct for staff is outlined in the appropriate manuals and handbooks. There is a strong partnership with parents to reinforce Christian and family values in the students’ lives. Some of our faculty members are even PCA alumni.

Mrs. S. Kim (Choi): “I became an educator because I love working with young people, empowering them to think critically about their learning and to apply this in living humbly, loving mercy, and doing justice in their contexts. PCA offers the unique opportunity to truly teach the whole child—mind, body, and spirit. Having previously worked mainly in the public sector, I am grateful for this gift. I love PCA’s vision of training young people to live out their callings and to follow Jesus in the transformative work of loving our neighbours both locally and globally.

Additionally, the PCA community must be experienced to be believed. There is such a strong culture of love, respect, and excellence. I am privileged to work among colleagues who have become brothers and sisters and who daily live out the principles we teach.”

Miss S. Cho: “What joy to work at a school where everything we do remembers God’s underlying redemptive purpose and seeks to model a life of 3-fold fruit: achievement and progress, loving others and ourselves, and worshiping God. I am so thankful to be part of a team that equips students’ minds, encourages their hearts, nurtures their souls, and roots them in God’s Word and Grace so that they are blessed and can go out into the world to be a blessing. It’s an inexpressible privilege to participate in GOD’s workmanship and help students grow in all manners of Christ-likeness and excellence, while encouraging them to shine His Light, share His love, extend His reconciliation, and intercede in prayer! All that while sharing life, laughter, and pizza.”

Miss D. Lau: “I am truly thankful that God has given me the opportunity to serve Him here at PCA. By His grace I have been saved through faith and by His grace I am able to partake in His mighty deeds! I believe that through the sharing of God’s Word and the Holy Spirit working amongst us, children’s lives are continually transformed as they learn and experience the gracious love of God. In partnership with families, we can work together to provide a safe environment in which children can explore and create meaning from the world God has created for us to enjoy. “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”” (Matthew 19:14, ESV). To God be all glory, honour, and praise!
