Note from the President

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 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.

Troy A. Shoemaker, Ed.D.
