PCA Faces the "New Normal" Year #2 !
Last year, about this time, we were anxious, to say the least!
So many pressing questions needed to be answered with clarity and soon! Terms like blended learning, online learning, modality, modules, learning management system, reliable internet providers, and so many other terms became by words . Webinars were attended here and there! There were modifications in the structures of the school facilities to give way to teachers' new classroom, the ONLINE CLASSES!
Students also were complaining about almost everything. The new normal scared most of them and the idea was almost unimaginable if not incomprehensible! They needed to change some areas of their house to fit a study area conducive enough for them to join a 'classroom in cyberspace' without being distracted. The idea that they will not see each other 'face to face' was almost an unacceptable reality they needed to face.
With all the challenges mentioned above and more unforeseen, PCA joined hands with parents and homes to continue to uplift the cause of the children, the future of our country, citizens preparing for heaven.
After one year another set of changes, 'fine tuning' as it is referred, needs to be made to serve students better. Plans are now being made to make better class activities, integration of subject requirements, access, monitoring and follow up on students.
A more significant change this year is the parent's access to the classroom. They will be given access via passkey and class codes to each of their child's online classes. The aim is to empower the parents to monitor academic requirements and allow them to remind and follow-up on their children's academic activities and requirements.
Also this year, we are going to use academic sites and applications, whether online or offline in the learning activities of classes.
God willing, this school year 2021-2022, will be a better, more promising, more productive, more engaging and happier year for PCAians!
Glory to God..

Pasay City Academy
Pasay City Academy traces its early beginnings as a church school in 1949 under Pasay Tagalog Church. The first teachers Ms. A. Ordonez and Ms. Lucia Ferrer. It was registered in the Ministry of Education as "Rizal City Adventist School". The first students remember the school housed at the Pasay Tagalog Church at D. Reyes Street along Libertad Street. Sometime in 1950-51, the school was moved to 217A San Juan Street.
PCA was founded as a multi-grade, Elementary School in 1952, jointly sponsored by the Pasay English Church and the Pasay Tagalog Church, after the school moved from San Juan Street to the "Quonset Hut" behind the Pasay English Church. In 1954 the school was moved to the newly constructed, two-story wooden building where it stood for 22 years. During this time it also became a Junior Academy and was renamed Pasay City SDA Elementary School. Ms. Rizalina Tigno-Supit was the first principal when the school was moved to the new wooden building in 1954.
In 1958, the school was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as Pasay City Academy, and in May of that same year it was recognized by the Department of Education, Culture, and Sports (DECS).
The construction of a fifty-meter wide highway, which began in 1976 connecting Buendia Avenue to Roxas Boulevard affected the academy slicing 272 square meters from the original area. The old building was demolished and a new L-shaped, four-story concrete building was put up through the joint efforts of Pasay Adventist Church and Pasay Central Church. Pastor Alberto C. Regoso led and chaired the PCA Building Committee). Parents, teachers, alumni and friends helped put up PCA to SERVE the needs of the Adventist Youth in the area. This new concrete building was constructed over a period of several years. Portion of the school lot was owned by Pasay Central Church and their church is at the 4th floor of Pasay City Academy.
