Welcome to ExPlore 2019! Now in its 5th year, ExPlore Week has become part of the culture at Plymouth Christian Academy for our 9th-12th grade students. We are grateful for the staff, teachers, and volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the years to make this amazing week possible for our students. Are you wondering what this week is all about?

During ExPlore, PCA offers a variety of classes to help students discover new interests, test their creativity through classes held both on campus and around the community and grow in their faith. It’s a week to experiment, create, grow and explore. This year, students are registering online to make the selection process easier than it has ever been. The 2019 classes range from Forensic Science with Dr. Muse to the Basics of Sound Engineering with Mr. Rich. Stay tuned to PCA’s social media to see this exciting week in action from March 25-29.
Sophomore & Senior Trips
It is during this week, that PCA Sophomores and Seniors have the opportunity to experience both educational and mission trips. They learn about culture first hand, visiting museums, viewing amazing architecture and absorbing current culture.
10th grade students have the unforgettable opportunity to experience our nation’s rich history and Capitol, first hand. Students experience the entire Smithsonian Museum Complex as well as Mt. Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, the U.S. Capitol Building and the Gettysburg Battlefield.
Seniors have the unique opportunity to visit the country of Costa Rica. The trip is coordinated through Joshua Expeditions, a non-profit Christian organization founded for the purpose of assisting schools and churches in bringing the world to young people and bringing the Gospel to the world. During this trip, students have many opportunities, including white water rafting, zip-lining, enjoying a catamaran cruise, viewing a magnificent waterfall, volcano and visiting natural hot springs. The mission work on this trip is truly a highlight of their senior year, as they have life-changing experiences whether they spend quality time with orphans and school-age children or help local churches with their facility. This trip allows our seniors to learn and experience the people, places, and significance of this beautiful country. Learn more about Joshua Expeditions HERE.

By now we know you’re thinking that you’d like to go back to high school for ExPlore Week and sign up for a few of these courses and experiences! We understand completely. But we’re sorry, these great opportunities are only available for PCA high school students. You can ask them about it though! I’m sure they’ll be willing to share what they learn.
