Note From the President

Pensacola Christian Academy has a rich heritage of over 60 years in Christian education. Over that time, through the vision of Dr. and Mrs. Arlin Horton, we have developed tried and true methods for successfully operating a vibrant Christian school ministry.

Principals Clinic is designed to inspire principals, administrators, and pastors to greater servant-leadership and effectiveness, while offering in-depth solutions for common administrative procedures. Our skilled, professional staff will share invaluable knowledge and proven techniques so you’ll be thoroughly prepared in a variety of key topics. And the Office Management track for secretaries and office staff will greatly benefit your personnel.

Make plans early to attend! We would count it a privilege to help you build a more effective Christian school ministry for the Lord.

Join us for Principals Clinic 2019.

Dr. Arlin R. Horton & Bekah Horton


In 1952, Arlin and Beka Horton came to Pensacola with a dream to start a Christian school.

Their dream came true when the school opened in 1954 with just 3 teachers and 35 students. The next year, there were 100 students.

Growth was steady.

Now, Pensacola Christian Academy (the school that started off so small) has 2,000 students every year. (That’s not counting the 40,000+ students who watch Pensacola Christian Academy teachers at home through the Abeka video program.)

Principals Clinic was started in 1969 to share with principals from all over the country—and even around the world—how they can build successful schools and most effectively use the Abeka curriculum.

What philosophy and methods have worked so well for us? You’ll find out at Principals Clinic, and you’ll be able to take that knowledge and apply it anywhere.

  • “The classes we observed were excellent. The students serving as our hosts/hostesses were polite, friendly, mature, knowledgeable and overall delightful.”

  • “The clinic is excellent—so well run and organized. The staff and speakers are very knowledgeable and convey information clearly. I’m so glad I got to experience it. I'm taking great instruction and wisdom home with me.”

  • “I’ve enjoyed my time here. I have taken away many helpful resources that will improve my school.”
