Because of the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19 across our nation, we canceled the 2020 Principals Clinic event. While we were unable to provide this clinic in person, Abeka has added resources for principals and administrators on our website: We are also planning to hold a Virtual Summer Seminar event later this summer. You can find out more about that event at

If there is anything further we can do to assist you, please let us know. We look forward to offering future webinar and other events to help educators grow their schools and meet the needs of their students!

Come observe a thriving Christian school and discover new ideas for your ministry.

Office Management


*Tracks should be attended consecutively based upon the number of years you have attended Principals Clinic, since each builds upon the previous year. Valuable materials are given that are distinctive to each year's track and available only to delegates in that track.

I’ve enjoyed my time here. I have taken away many helpful resources that will improve my school.


Sessions begin at 2:30 p.m.
on Monday, March 23.

Last session ends at 2:30 p.m.,

What to Expect

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

  • How teachers handle discipline
  • 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
The classes we observed were excellent. The students serving as our hosts/hostesses were polite, friendly, mature, knowledgeable and overall delightful.

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 2020.
