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.
