Reading Bible



Pleasant Ridge Christian Academy will assist parents in their God given mandate: 

"Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."

Ephesians 6:4

Likewise, we will assist students in their God given mandate:

"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "Honor your father and mother so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth."

Ephesians 6:1-3

The mission of PRCA is to partner with families who value and understand the responsibility that God has commanded of them for the training and instruction provided to their children. PRCA firmly believes that students will benefit from a strong relationship with the parents and the consistent message of God's sovereignty across home, church, and school.

Students are expected to work hard, each at their own level of aptitude. Students are encouraged to develop relationships with adults and peers on campus that will nurture and grow their spiritual walks. 

Biblical principles will be the foundation of everything that is taught at PRCA.
