Welcome to Pantego Christian Academy's Arlington Elementary Campus!
This is Pantego Christian Academy's 57th year ministering in the Pantego/Arlington area. We are excited about the great things the Lord has done in and through our school in the past, and we look forward to what He plans to accomplish in the coming years! Our campus has an ECA (Early Childhood Academy) for 1 to 3 year olds, a Preschool and Transition program for 4 and 5 year olds and our Elementary program begins with Kindergarten and goes through 5th grade. Our programing includes Art, STEM, Music, PE, Library, Spanish and Technology classes. We also offer special services for the gifted and talented students through our AIM (Activating Inquisitive Minds) program for 4th and 5th grade students and our CIA (Creative Individual Academics) and Learning Lab programs for our students who have learning differences in the area of dyslexia and the dyslexia family.
As part of our curriculum, we offer individualized instruction to address the academic needs of all our students. Accelerated Reader (AR) is for students in grades Pre-K through 5th grade. AR is an individual reading comprehension-based program that challenges the strong readers and encourages growth in the struggling reader. Mathletics is for our Kindergarten-5th grade scholars and is also a computer based program that is a complement to our Math curriculum. It helps identify areas of needed improvement and individualizes instruction to strengthen those areas. Technology is an important part of our instruction, and we have Smart Boards in K-5th grade classrooms and Chrome book stations in each of our elementary classrooms.
Chapel is also an important part of every student's week here at PCA. Chapel takes place on Thursday mornings and students participate in praise and worship while learning about God's Word.
We hope that you will prayerfully consider joining our family! We would be blessed to partner with you in the development of your scholar as they grow spiritually, academically, emotionally and socially at PCA. For more information please contact us at 817-460-3315.
