PRCA School Board 2019-20



The purpose of the Pusch Ridge Christian Academy School Board is to assist the families of our school and the greater Tucson evangelical community in their God-ordained responsibility to raise their children in the fullness of Christian discipleship by providing a Biblical education with a classical curricula emphasis in Kindergarten through 12th grade. In pursuit of this purpose, Pusch Ridge Christian Academy does not seek to replace or duplicate the unique roles and responsibilities of the family or the church, but rather to partner covenantally with them, offering a challenging academic, college-preparatory courses of learning whereby the succeeding generations will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, character, will, and biblical worldview to meet the complex challenges of our ever-changing world.

We thank our Board all of their hard work!  They are pictured here in front of the future Building 3 and Student Plaza.
Dear PRCA Community,

It has always been an honor serving on the PRCA school board, however as I come back on the board after a year away it is especially rewarding right now. There are many exciting events taking place at PRCA. Last year we completed our re-accreditation process through ACSI and AdvancED. Both of these accreditation organizations had great things to say about the PRCA culture, leadership, and the education we are providing.

On the heels of a highly successful capital campaign where God has delivered over $8 million in contributions and commitments to support PRCA’s development and growth, we are in the process of making many capital improvements to the school in both locations. There will be a significant change to the face of both campuses over the next year. We thank you for your patience as we go through this process.

In addition to the exciting building efforts going on this year, we are also taking on the important task of long-term strategic planning for our school. As we engage in this strategic planning process we will remain true to the mission of PRCA “to teach our students to become like Christ, through a classical Christian education, in a covenantal community.” Remaining mission true is of the utmost importance to us. We are not looking to change our mission. We are looking to deepen our mission. We are also not looking to define a vision of what we want for PRCA. We are looking to find what God’s vision is for PRCA, so that we may follow it.

Thank you for your faithful support of PRCA.
