The Providence Creek Academy PTO is organized to support the educational activities and facilities at PCA. All parents/guardians of PCA students, as well as teachers and staff of the school are automatically members of the organization. We encourage all members to participate in the PTO activities and events; there is truly something for everyone. The PTO hosts various family, social, and educational events to help foster a sense of community within the school. We also hold various fundraising events to help financially support the school, students, and teachers. None of this is possible with out the support of members like you! The PTO holds general membership meetings approximately once a month and encourages attendance at these meetings. All meetings run approximately 45 minutes. Please see our calendar for meeting dates.

Joseph Lightcap - Teacher Representative (Upper School)
I am a 2013 graduate of Wesley College, where I received my Bachelors of Science in Physical Education K-12. I found a passion for working with children through coaching and playing sports on the high school and collegiate level, which led me to my studies in education in college. This is my 4th year at PCA and I’m excited to continue my efforts in teaching your children healthy components and physical wellness concepts, as well as being able to move into teaching strength and conditioning as an elective. In my free time, I enjoy traveling the country playing competitive men’s slow pitch softball, spending time with my loving family, and coaching football at Middletown High School.
