Pusch Ridge Christian Academy has begun the 2020-2021 school year!
Thank you for your patience & support during these unprecedented and challenging times. Below are listed the four foundational principles that have guided and will continue to steer our decision-making not only in preparing for opening, but also throughout the year.
- To advance PRCA’s mission, ensuring the provision of excellent classical Christian education primarily on-campus, with special contingencies for at-home schooling.
- To maximize the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff, while simultaneously minimizing the risk to our community of contracting the virus.
- To navigate as surely and reliably a course forward as is possible given the very uncertain and shifting circumstances of our times. Factors we will carefully weigh are: a) government and state agency issued guidelines and executive orders (CDC, ADHS, etc.), b) community confidence in health & safety measures and the way they are enforced, and c) the financial strength and institutional sustainability of PRCA.
- To call upon our Lord and God to: a) illuminate our path forward with wisdom and love, b) to keep the peace and unity of our community, c) to bless and protect our students, their families, faculty and staff – all for the glory and honor of our Lord and His Kingdom.
Our downloadable COVID-19 Handbook
to the right addresses the modifications and adaptations that PRCA is making to press on with our educational mission as safely and securely as possible for our students, faculty and staff. As modifications are made, they will promptly be integrated into the Handbook; note that the cover page will reflect the date of the most recent change. Updates will also be listed separately by date below the Handbook.
Although nothing replaces on-campus, in-person Christian learning, we fully recognize that many of our families must, for safety’s sake, keep their children at home for the present time. For these students, we have created the Lions Online Learning Program, with separate downloadable plans for the Grammar School
(grades DK-5) and for the Upper School
(grades 6-12). Students opting for the online option remain enrolled at PRCA.
We ask that you pray for PRCA and be flexible as we begin the new school year and continue to provide the amazing Christian education you expect!
