Pusch Ridge Christian Academy Photo #1 - Grammar School Students at DeGrazia Gallery
  • Pusch Ridge Christian Academy is for students in grades K-12. We offer a classical education in three stages of the trivium. Our Grammar School, grades K-5, is the grammar stage, Middle School, grades 6-8 is the logic stage and High School, grades 9-12, is the rhetoric stage. As a covenantal school, we enroll children from families with a clear commitment to rearing their children in the Christian faith.
  • As a classical school we have a strong emphasis on academic rigor (reflected in our high test scores) and exposing our children to the best in music, art, and literature.

Pusch has been a wonderful place for both our children. We love the covenantal community which works together to guide all students. I can't imagine their high school experiences being better anywhere else. The teachers care about their students and model Christ-like behaviors. My son received a scholarship to play college sports which was comprised of both academic and athletic awards We truly feel blessed to be a part of the Pusch Community.

My sons thrived at Pusch Ridge! They were challenged by rigorous classes and mentored by coaches who cared as much about character as they did performance. As a parent, I knew my sons were being taught by teachers who knew them well, called out their talents and abilities, and truly desired God's best for them. Each was well prepared for college academics. Most importantly, Pusch Ridge helped give my sons a truly biblical worldview, with living examples to emulate for the rest of their lives.

All of my children have gone or are currently going through Cornerstone Christian Academy. We are very impressed by its quality academic as well as grace-filled spiritual environment for our kids. The school's commitment to time-tested classical education from a biblical perspective is priceless.

We love Cornerstone Christian Academy! Their teachers are nurturing providing a small teacher-studio ratio, the school is well-run by the administration. CCA provides a classical education style combined with diverse extra-curricular activities, along with Christian values. Definitely worth checking out.

Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
