Peer interaction and mentoring is an important part of the PRCA experience. Our older students mentor our younger students on a regular basis.
With the freedom from state-mandated standardized testing, our students have the freedom to experience fun, interactive lessons and enjoy special programs and presentations. Here our sixth grade students are having an English Tea after studying the Boston Tea Party.
Our student enjoy hands-on projects and group work. It is important to be able to work successfully independently and in a group.

Our daughter went to public school for a year and to say it was a difficult year is an understatement. She has been in "school" since she was 12 weeks old so this was not anything new for her. But the way she was treated was. A very good friend recommended Park Row Christian Academy when she heard of our trouble. We decided it would be best to give her a fresh start at a new school. I''m here to tell you that it has made all the difference in the world to her and our family. The Kindergarten team has been super and everyone is like family there. If I have questions I can call or email and they encourage parents to be as involved as they can be. The classes are not so big that the kids don't get the attention they need and deserve. If you''re looking for a school please take the time to check out Park Row. They helped our daughter love school again!

My son has attended Park Row Christian since Kindergarten and I would definitely recommend this school if you are looking for a school that has very experienced, loving, compassionate teachers as well as staff. The quality of time and effort is not often seen these days and their openness to allow the parents to be involved and know the curriculum is wonderful. They have a great teacher to student ratio as well as other 'teachers'' who assist the main teacher in providing education. A quality school for a reasonable tuition.

My oldest daughter attended this school from the age of 3 until 6th grade. She loved attending there and has transitioned easily to public Jr. High with no difficulty. My youngest started in PreK and is now in the 4th grade. I would recommend this school to anyone. The tuition is reasonable, the teachers are loving and competent, and the curriculum is excellent. I''m very glad I heard about the school at the right time to send my children there.

Changes to the Tax Code in late 2017 included the addition of saving for K-12 private school education to 529 plans. We take a look at what this means for families thinking about private school for their children.
