college in Pensacola, Florida, USA, founded in 1974 by Arlin Horton.
In 1974, the Hortons opened Pensacola Christian College to further their vision of "Education from a Christian Perspective." Pensacola Theological Seminary, an extension of PCC's graduate school, was founded in 1998.
The school's 4,000+ undergraduate students represent all 50 states and over 60 nations.
The school is an active proponent of traditional, Christian education; their in-house publisher, A Beka Book (named after Horton's wife, Beka), provides a K-12 curriculum that is used by some traditional Christian schools and homeschooling families.
It has become one of the largest Christian textbook publishers in America.
In 2005 more than 3,500 delegates attended practical clinics and seminars sponsored by the college.
