PMCA is committed in all matters of faith and life to the Bible as the inerrant and infallible word of God.
PMCA subscribes to the Reformed system of doctrine as contained in the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Confession of Faith (Philadelphia Baptist Confession). Accordingly, PMCA acknowledges Christ as the Creator and Sustainer of all things, the Sovereign Ruler over all of life, and the Redeemer of sinful mankind.
The Bible gives primary responsibility to parents to bring up their children in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). PMCA does not operate in the parents’ place; rather, it functions as the parental agent, with authority to act in the parents’ absence and in voluntary cooperation with them. PMCA expects parents to assume responsibility for the behavior of their children. (A Christian family will be defined as a family with a profession of faith from at least one parent/guardian).
God commands that His children develop fully in every part of their lives (Genesis 1:26-28). They should become biblically responsible citizens within their cultures and lead those cultures into deeper awareness and understanding of Jesus Christ as the Lord of culture. PMCA produces students who demonstrate godliness, think biblically, and are ready to respond to God’s calling.
Students are prepared to articulate a Christian world-and-life view in the university setting or wherever God may call them. PMCA focuses on preparing students for college using classic liberal arts curricula.
PMCA upholds high standards of academic integrity. Students are expected to perform to the best of their God-given abilities.
PMCA supports the faculty in their carrying out the school’s vision by providing the necessary tools for such an endeavor, including effective leadership, appropriate organizational systems, and opportunities for professional and spiritual development. The faculty demonstrate a mastery of their academic discipline, a knowledge of educational methodology, and spiritual maturity in their interaction with students and families.
PMCA upholds biblical standards of respect and behavior, which should be reflected in the lives of students, parents, faculty, staff, and board.
The atmosphere of PMCA is characterized by loving relationships in recognition of and in response to God’s grace in individual lives and in His sustaining of the school.
PMCA serves Christian families within the Philadelphia and southeastern Montgomery County community, acknowledging and supporting its demographic diversity.
Co-curricular programs enrich the students’ education and are delivered in a high quality and effective manner.
All students are expected to participate in service opportunities as an integral part of the student experience.
