Explore – Engage – Transform
One thing that makes our school special is our desire to teach beyond the book, beyond the test, and beyond the classroom.
It is our goal to help our students explore the world, engage positively with others, and transform their characters and walks with Christ.
BeyondPAA is the name we give to the many opportunities that strengthen a student’s character and walk with Christ. It includes events like global and local mission trips, service experiences, class wilderness excursions & leadership challenges, Bible camp, music tours, and many spiritual events led by both students and adults.
This school year, we are excited to offer students two educational tours, five mission trips, and multiple music trips!

I love chapel, week of prayer and our vespers programs. It’s been really inspiring to me and thought provoking. I love singing worship songs in chapel and vespers. And Bible camp was awesome!

The Hurricane Sandy mission trip opened a new door for me. I learned it’s not just about material things- it’s not about the clothes and food. It’s about those people knowing we are willing to help them and hear them.

Bible camp, agape feast and mission trips... Without those opportunities my walk with God wouldn’t be as strong.

Vespers is personal and intimate. It’s a place to share yourself and discuss important stuff. The best part is that you feel listened to and not judged.
