Seminar speakers are skilled professionals with years of experience on
Pensacola Christian’s faculty and staff. Their invaluable knowledge, proven techniques, and helpful

I loved how the teachers stressed the importance of a walk with God and adding biblical principles

Currently, Christian schools across the nation are finding themselves in a unique
educational environment. Now more than ever, teachers and administrators need the support and
encouragement to keep students learning—and learning well.
For your health and safety, Abeka will host the first-ever Virtual Summer Seminar. You’ll build upon what you already know, take your skills higher, and gain valuable COVID-19 teaching and leadership strategies.
You’ll receive in-depth training on materials and methods and learn practical skills to use every
day in your school and classroom. Teachers and administrators will show you the methods that have worked exceptionally at Pensacola Christian Academy for over 65 years.
You can also connect with other teachers and administrators from across the country. Share goals with them, discuss ideas, and build on each other’s experiences and knowledge.
