Pythagoras Children s Academy (PCA) is an extension of our family, it's a place where my children are loved and nurtured and encouraged to explore the potential that God has given them. PCA is also a place where we have become part of their family, where friendships are formed not only with classmates, but between parents and teachers. It's a place where, beginning in preschool, my children have been challenged to reach their full potential, are held accountable for their actions, and have developed a deep love of learning! As a result my children have left PCA s preschool program extremely well prepared, spiritually, academically and socially for Kindergarten. PCA by far, has been the best investment we ve made in our children so far!

PCA has given my children an amazing foundation. There are so many things to love here. Not only do students get a top-notch education, but it's an education in so much more. When PCA says they educate the "whole child," they really mean it. From religious education and opportunities to live the faith; to learning another language (of which studies show leads to academic success as well as tolerance of other cultures); to being instilled with pride in heritage; to reinforcing the family values we teach at home; to the family environment where teachers don't just teach, they love and nurture our kids; there's so much to love here. It's truly a family, and along with the priests, the teachers, everyone, we all work together to build foundations for these kids. Kids feel safe and comfortable here. They are empowered with confidence, self-esteem, and so much more. The friendships they make here will last a lifetime. I will be sad when our children move on from PCA. This is the only school like this around here, and I'm so glad we are able to be a part of it. Check it out.

Pythagoras Children's Academy (PCS) has provided both of my girls an excellent education rooted in our rich Hellenic heritage and Orthodox faith. My oldest is currently in the 3rd grade at PCA and my youngest in K and are both excelling!! I attribute this to the very low student-to-teacher ratio and the amazing and dedicated teachers PCA employs. If you are interested in a small private school with a lot of heart and Orthodox Christian values, check PCA out. You will not be dissapointed.

It is amazing how much our children are thriving every day at PCA. PCA offers a perfect combination of great academics, caring teachers, loving priests and a strong moral foundation. PCA students consistently score in the top 15% nationally on standardized tests and the classrooms are limited to a maximum of 14 students. Individualized attention is so important to us. Our children are coming home with so much happiness and a strong desire to learn and grow. What more can we as parents ask for?

Our children love going to school here! They come home so happy every day and talk about their school friends all day long. The teachers and priests are excellent and truly care for all of the children. The academic programs are challenging with customized instruction due to the small class sizes. PCA is a religious private institution which provides a strong moral foundation upon which is built confidence, good self-esteem and strong academic roots that pave the way for the challenging middle school years. We truly love feel this type of safe and nurturing environment is best for our children during their critical early years of learning.

My children are receiving a top notch education at PCA. My 3rd grader is performing 2-3 grade levels above her own on standardized tests. My Kindergartener was reading small books in Pre-K. They have quality teachers and caring priests who make my children love school! The students begin learning greek and religion in pre-school. I truly love this school.

Incredible school!!!! My daughter is thriving, she's a first grader performing at third grade level in all subjects, including math!!! The tuition is fairly priced. I'm not planning on returning next year simply due to finances but it's a struggle to leave because of the quality of education we're receiving. I'm afraid the quality won't be the same in the public school.

Pythagoras Children's Academy (PCA)is a wonderful private school located in St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church. I have two students there, and both are receiving a top notch education. Children thrive in PCA's small classrooms, with teachers and staff who care about each child. PCA has an excellent preschool and full-day Kindergarten program, where both my kids had the opportunity to learn from an advanced curriculum. PCA offers Greek language classes to all studens three times per week, and also offers religious education (Greek Orthodox) from the parish's priest. He is friendly and loving to all the students, and his daily influcence is a wonderful addition to the environment. PCA builds an excellent foundation for the students' spiritual and educational endeavors as they eventually mainstream into public schools. I have been very satisfied with my experience there these past 4 years.
