On behalf of the school board, faculty, staff, parents, and students, let me welcome you to Pusch Ridge Christian Academy!
PRCA is a vibrant, comprehensive, DK-12 Christian school. The entire leadership, faculty, and staff are called to equip the next generation so that they can impact their world in the name of Jesus. As such, PRCA strives to be distinctively Christian, instructionally classical, and fully covenantal, seeking to serve the families of faith across the Tucson basin. In the spirit of the ancient classical learning tradition, education at PRCA nurtures the heads, the hearts, and the hands of young men and women so they are prepared for educational and life success while being equipped to lead by engaging the world with a Christ-founded faith, biblical wisdom, compassion, and courage.
C.S. Lewis, Christian author and scholar, warns us, “Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man into a clever devil.” I believe a child will have more success by submitting to Jesus, cultivating honor, virtue, and a sense of beauty than seeking entrance to the most prestigious schools. What good is an advanced degree from an ivy league college if the person does not know God, honor his/her marriage vows, or guide his/her offspring towards a genuine walk with Jesus? As a scholar of literature, it was natural for C.S. Lewis to make the connection between a child’s character and the stories being taught in the home and school. Lewis comments, “Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have hearts of bravery and heroic courage.”
