School Notes

  • Pusch Ridge Christian Academy strives for excellence across the curriculum, teaching from a Biblical worldview, so that each student is prepared to engage the world with the truth of the Gospel. PRCA`s model of classical education provides a strong academic foundation to equip students for the future. Classical education is a systematic method of training students to become critical thinkers so they have the tools for pursuing knowledge, wisdom, and virtue, with the Truth of Christ as the standard.  As a result, a life-long love of learning is cultivated, and students are able to think logically and to reason persuasively about the world around them.  PRCA's mission involves partnering with parents in the Christian education of students and, as a result, families agree to support and cooperate with PRCA in the philosophy and standards taught at school.
  • Besides the standard subjects of learning, PRCA incorporates foreign language, music, art and physical education. High school sports teams compete in the 3A division.

I have three children who have been attending Pusch Ridge for many years. I am so grateful that my boy and girls have been challenged academically, encouraged by loving teachers and stretched to work hard and give their best on the fields, on the courts and in the classrooms. The community of families are second to none, and I am so grateful to have these families and teachers helping us raise our three kids. Tax credits make a private Christian education accessible to anyone.

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.
