PCA is a ministry of Parkridge Church, reaching children 2yrs old through 8th grade. PCA seeks to meet students’ individual needs through excellent education while also placing an emphasis on equipping students with skills and knowledge to change the world for Christ. In Proverbs 22:6 it states “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” It is our desire to partner with parents in the development of students spiritually, academically, and socially, so that they will think from a biblical worldview as they launch into God’s plan and purpose for their lives.
Once again, we thank you for your interest in our program. We know it is a sacrifice to enable your children to attend private school, but we also know the amazing benefits of Christian education. With our recent acquisition of 10,000 square feet, Smart TV's in all K-8 classrooms, athletic programs, and newly resurfaced playground area, it is clear that the Lord’s favor has been upon us. It is our hope that we will provide the attention, information, and support that you need to make one of the most important decisions of a lifetime.
