In our first year, PCA has a fixed amount of space and will need to be quite selective on enrollment to ensure success. You are a good candidate for enrollment if you meet these criteria:
students should be committed to the mission and statement of faith before
enrolling. You are welcome to discuss any of these tenets with us to determine
if you are able to fully support this partnership.
PCA will generally enroll students who are average or above average in ability and achievement. If we believe we have the resources in staffing and facilities, we will do our best to accommodate special needs. Please be aware, however, that resources are limited, and if we cannot fully serve your child, we will recommend enrollment in another setting with necessary resources and staff.
An admissions exam and interview are required, along with reference checks, to determine a student's potential for success at PCA.
Pittsburgh Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its hiring policies, educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship, athletic, and other school-administered programs.
All PCA Students, staff, volunteers, parents, and guardians are expected to follow these principles:
- Be Present
- Be Respectful
- Be Kind
Conflicts should be resolved according to the principles outlined in Matthew 18: 15 – 18, with the appropriate help and disciplinary guidance of instructors and administrators.
All members of our community should show continual progress in the following characteristics:
PCA is a Christ-centered school. We seek to know Jesus, be led by His Word and Spirit, and be shaped by the Gospel.
We are distinguished by Christ’s redemptive discipleship. A disciple imitates and shares the mindset of the Savior (2 Cor. 3:16). Our teachers exemplify the Christ-centered life, teaching all subjects within the authority and context of Christ as preeminent and transforming all Creation, including our lives. We foster prayer for and with one another as we draw closer to Christ and our PCA family.
Jesus sets the standards for excellence and with Him as our example, we offer distinctive academic programs from a Biblical perspective. Students learn to think critically and creatively, to communicate ideas, and to cooperate with one another within a biblical worldview.
We are a relational community in which every member is known and loved. We endeavor to form purposeful partnerships with teachers, students, our families, and local churches. These relationships nurture and encourage our students through Biblical teaching and Christ-like examples. Our goal is to see students become servants of Christ in the school, the church, the community, and the world.
