Welcome!

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Piedmont Christian Academy. We are delighted that you are considering Piedmont Christian Homeschool Association for your child's educational needs. We hope that we will be able to give you a complete overview of our program that will enable you to make one of the most important decisions you will make; the educational program for your child.

With your enrollment, PCHA offers record keeping of the student's progress through the years. The following are a few of the reports available to you as a parent. A Supervisor's Progress Report shows that PACE progress of the student at any given time during the school year. A Progress Towards Graduation shows the number of Paces necessary to complete the graduation process. A Transcript shows all of the credits that have been completed towards graduation, or at completing of graduation. Upon graduation, the student receives the diploma that he/she has been working toward.

Curriculum

We use the A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education) Curriculum. This curriculum takes your child from the fundamentals of kindergarten through high school college level courses. The curriculum is a pace program using 12 PACES (Packets of Accelerated Christian Education) in each subject to complete a year of learning. Piedmont Christian Academy offers 6 subjects per year which include the mandatory Math, English & Composition, Social Studies, Science, and Word Building and Literature. We have found that this curriculum well equips that student for future learning at the college of their choice.
