Plaza Heights Christian Academy Photo #1
Our primary focus at Plaza Heights Christian Academy is developing godly character in future generations by teaching Biblical principles.
We all know that education starts at birth and is a life-long process.
Children need their education to be consistent. Consistency - not conflict - between home, school, and church is very important.
One goal we have at Plaza Heights Christian Academy is to have the Bible be the integrating factor in all that we do. We are committed to teaching students Biblical principles that reinforce what is taught in the home.

Great school! Good academics and many opportunities for athletics, art, music etc. This has been a great alternative to the huge public schools for our kids.

Plaza Heights has been everything I wished for my child and more. The leadership TRULY cares about the school's vision and goals they set forth for the school. The leadership are visible and interact with parents as well, which is really nice. We are a working family so before and after care is crucial for us. This school offers both of these at a great price. If you are wanting to find a solid biblical foundation for your child this is definitely a great place to send your little one. The class size is just right as well. In speaking with friends who teach at public schools it appears the teachers (at public schools) are super stressed, pulled in different directions and can't keep up with every child's demands....but how can you with 20+ kids in a classroom?! The class size for our daughter's class is around 13 kiddos. Lastly, we participate in the MOST program where I have money taken out of my paycheck (tax free) which goes into the MOST savings plan. I then take this money out (twice per year) to have it sent directly to this school. During tax time I noticed my refund amount go up after I entered this MOST deduction. All in all it's a win win for our fam.

Our children attended Plaza from preschool up into their high school years (until we moved out of state). We were extremely devastated to have to leave. The staff and teachers truly cared for my kids and our family. The school strives to have many different opportunities for kids to grow and develop educationally, spiritually, and characteristically. They offer many sports, a great music program, theater, arts, and much more. Our children participated in many activities and loved them all. If they struggled educationally the teachers were willing to help them outside of the classroom as well as in it. This is a great well rounded school for a Christian Education.

Where else can you get a quality private school education taught through a Christian Worldview for approximately $5,000 per year? In addition, the school is a safe "family like" environment small enough that everyone has an opportunity to partipate in all desired extra curricular activities..
