Admissions

We chose PRCA because of its excellent academic education and Christian world-view, but we have stayed all of these years because of the commitment of the faculty and staff to the betterment of our children, the small class sizes, the fabulous friendships our kids have made, the greater school community, and the wonderful enrichment and extracurricular activities they have all been able to be a part of.

Welcome To Pusch Ridge Christian Academy!

PRCA is a community of 880 students in DK-12. We partner with families seeking a faith-based education, supporting students in discovering their unique, God-given purpose and gifts.

2022-2023 School Year

We are still accepting applications for the 2022 – 2023 school year for Kindergarten and 1st grade at our dual-language South campus. 

Applications for the 2023-2024 school year are now open for Upper School, Grammar School and PRCA South. When applying, please ensure you select the correct year and campus location. 

Our Admissions Process

  • Inquire Online - This online form tells us about your child and why you are interested in PRCA, along with your desired next step in pursuing admission.
  • Come for a Campus Tour - We invite you to schedule an appointment with an Admissions representative for a campus tour, and if interested, discuss financial aid and scholarship options. 
  • Apply - Using our Lions Den portal, you will have access to the admissions process and be notified of the next steps.
  • Testing ($140 fee) - All students entering grades 6-12 must email Admissions to obtain a testing link and register for an on-campus online assessment test. 
  • Family Interview - This is the final step for applicants in good standing and with completed files.
Qualified students remaining in the wait pool in August may have an opportunity to enroll during the school year should an opening occur.
