What is Putnam City Academy??

Putnam City Academy is an alternative junior high and high school for students in grades 6-12, and PCA night school is for students grades 6-12, at risk of not graduating  due to academic, social, or emotional barriers.  We believe each student has the responsibility to develop his/her potential to the fullest.
