What to Expect

Each day will offer four sessions in the morning, a session after lunch, and an optional hour of sessions after that.

The first session begins at 8:30, and you'll have some time between sessions to relax and get to know other educators.

Unique seminar scheduling provides for study or relaxation each afternoon. Track sessions end at approximately 2:30 p.m. daily. In the afternoon, you can choose from optional topics, such as
  • Bulletin Boards/Digital Art
  • Library Procedures
  • Using Technology Effectively

Principals can also use the afternoon to meet with their faculty and cover information related to the specific needs of their school.

Note From the President

As a teacher or administrator, you are the catalyst in a chain reaction. The better you are at your job, the more successful your students will be.

At Summer Seminar, come build upon what you already know and take your skills to a higher level. You will get in-depth training on materials and methods and learn practical skills you can use every day in your school and classroom.

You will hear from teachers and administrators who will show you the methods that have worked exceptionally at Pensacola Christian Academy for over 65 years.

You will be learning alongside other teachers and administrators from across the country. Share goals with them, discuss ideas, and build on each other’s experiences and knowledge.
