Note from the President

Great teachers make great students. As educators, you understand the value of teacher training and its transforming effects on the student experience.

With over 9,000 online participants in the last two years, the Abeka Online Summer Seminar gives teachers and administrators the support and training that makes a difference. You’ll discover new ideas, methods, and practical skills, along with valuable COVID-19 strategies to use every day in the classroom.

Christian education experts will show you the methods that have worked exceptionally at Pensacola Christian Academy for over 65 years—all from the comfort of your home.

Troy A. Shoemaker, Ed.D.
