​STUDENT LIFE

Athletics


Because of our small school size, we don't have our own athletics teams, however several of our students are able to affiliate with other on-island schools to play the sport of their choice.

Students choose the school with which they would like to affiliate for sports at the beginning of the school year, or at the beginning of the season for the sport they desire to play. Students then contact the principal, athletic director, or coach of the affiliate school and ask to tryout for the team.  Affiliate schools each have their own procedure for affiliate enrollment; students are encouraged to contact their prospective affiliate schools as early as possible in order to complete all required documentation before the sport begins.

Students must have an annual physical as well as be academically eligible to play sports. At PICA academic eligibility requires a minimum of two completed PACEs per week (average) for the six weeks leading up to the beginning of the sport for sports beginning in second, third, or fourth quarters, and two completed PACEs per week throughout the sport to maintain eligibility. Should a student fail to maintain their academic eligibility, the affiliate school will be contacted and the student removed from the list of eligible players.

Dance

PICA students enjoy worshipping the Lord and performing through dance. Being a visual expression of our love for the Lord, we use dance to show our gratefulness for how He blesses us.

Dance is also a form of exercise. Students on the dance team are encouraged to learn ballet technique as the basis for all of dance and for strength training. Students spend one day a week learning dance technique and one day a week learning choreography.

Classes available are contemporary jazz and ballet technique training.

Students perform for school functions, at church events, and for video presentations.

We are pleased to present individual, in-person piano lesons with Mrs Chips Zacarias..

Students learn the basics of music theory as well as reading music and progress to being able to perform piano recitals or play piano accompaniment as part of our dramatic video presentations.

Students may also be involved in our PICA Choir and Rhythm Choir.

Senior Project

 

Each year, beginning in SY 2019/2020, the Senior group has chosen a Senior Project to give their time. From feeding the homeless, to clean-up projects, to serving a local organization, these projects have helped minister to the community of Guam as well as given the senior class an opportunity to work and grow together as ministers of the Gospel of Christ.

Ministering the Gospel of Christ

In February of 2020, just before the pandemic affected life as we know it on Guam, Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Crusade came to Guam.

Ten students from PICA went through training to be counselors at the event. Each of the students was able to pray with individuals who were seeking Christ or who just needed prayer and encouragement.

 

This enriching event helped our students gain confidence ministering to others as they realized the need to share the gospel of Christ with the world. 

In 2020, during the pandemic, our dance team participated in a combined youth choir to encourage and bless the youth of Guam. It can be viewed here.
