What to Expect


Teachers, students, and parents come to you for answers. But sometimes you have questions too.

Principals Clinic will help you find the answers from within the scope of traditional education.

In classroom observations, you’ll see firsthand

  • Ways to cover the Abeka material while maintaining personal style
  • How to integrate technology
  • Effective patterns for high school scheduling
  • Methods to keep students engaged
When I attended my first Principals Clinic in 2018, I expected to gain valuable insight from a Christian perspective that would help as I endeavor to lead my Christian school. What I did not expect was the invaluable opportunity to fellowship with and learn from other Christian school administrators from around the world. Not only did I leave with valuable information gleaned from the sessions, but I left with an encouraged heart gained from the time spent with other Christian principals.

Attending Principals Clinic was one of the best decisions I made as a first-year principal. I received practical suggestions to use in the classroom, helpful tips in how to manage and lead my faculty and students, and biblical insights for developing myself and my team towards becoming leaders who reflect Christ. I left Principals Clinic refreshed, encouraged, and inspired to use what I learned to further grow our school.

Note from the President

Pensacola Christian Academy has a rich heritage of over 65 years in Christian education. Over that time, through the vision of Dr. and Mrs. Arlin Horton, we have developed tried-and-true methods for successfully operating a vibrant Christian school ministry.

Principals Clinic is designed to inspire principals, administrators, and pastors to greater servant-leadership and effectiveness, while offering in-depth solutions for common administrative procedures. Our skilled, professional staff will share invaluable knowledge and proven techniques so you’ll be thoroughly prepared in a variety of key topics. And the Office Management track for secretaries and office staff will greatly benefit your personnel.

Make plans early to attend! We would count it a privilege to help you build a more effective Christian school ministry for the Lord.

Join us for Principals Clinic 2023.
