Check out what parents/students say about PCA

“Our daughter when to Praise Christian Academy from pre-K through 8th grade. What started off as an alternative to public school turned into the best decision we ever made. PCA was more than just a school. We made lifelong friends that we consider family. The curriculum was much more advanced than public schools and the teachers and staff are terrific! PCA's values laid the foundation for the faith based high school, college girl, and now woman she is today."

Tim & Jody B.


"My son attended Praise Christian Academy from 1st through 8th grade. We found the school through recommendations from parents at his previous kindergarten. Everything we had heard or read reinforced what those parents had said. From the first day, the school felt warm and welcoming. This feeling remained throughout our time there. Between family activities and participation in the Parent Teacher Fellowship, I was able to experience all of the facets of the school's environment. Had Praise offered high school grades as well, we would have remained at the school. Academically, my son left Praise at least one full grade level higher than the same grade level students at the next and other schools. I can recommend PCA without reservation."

Throughout my younger years, I attended Praise Christian Academy. I absolutely loved the experience and all of the life long friendships I made just from attending PCA. In my opinion, it was the best school I could've gone to. I learned about morals, Jesus, respect, kindness, compassion and many more attributes. The teachers at PCA are so loving and welcoming. I loved every single one of my teachers. They honestly made going to school feel like home. The teachers and staff are like family to us students. I had the best years of my life at this school. PCA taught me how to be closer to God. I absolutely loved the experiences and almost failed 8th grade on purpose just so I could get one more year there! Ha ha! But in all honesty, every one I know that has attended PCA, has grown to be amazing humans, very respectful, kind, and loving people. I am so thankful and grateful for being able to go to school there and I'm so thankful my mom decided to send me there."

"I am the parent of a child who went to Praise Christian Academy for 8 years. I love this school and the people who work there. When you come into the school and you walk the halls, you can tell the students are being taught in a loving environment. The way the teachers interact with the students is amazing. PCA has always been there for our family and continues to check in on us now that he has moved on to high school. I thank God every day that we found this school because my son would not be who he is today without the love and support of PCA."

Melissa S.


"My husband and I were praying for the right fit for our daughter. We wanted a smaller school setting with Godly values, and a strong academic foundation and one that was affordable. "Praise" was a perfect fit. We loved how much the teachers cared, and how it felt like a family. The students were so welcoming to my daughter when she came to the school. When she finally graduated from the school, they went above and beyond to make her last year so very memorable. We were so glad to have found this hidden gem."

"I attended PCA from pre-K through 8th grade. I graduated from PCA in 2016, and have carried all that I have learned there with me; whether being lifelong friends, good memories, or my relationship with God. Going to chapel every Wednesday and worshiping, praying, and hearing a message helped me build a strong foundation in my faith that has only helped me as the years go by. PCA gave me a family to go to if I ever needed anything, and some of the best years of my life. I still, to this day, talk with friends about how much PCA has shaped us into the Chrisitan's we are today. Aside from the spiritual point of view, PCA was an academic challenge in the best way. Going into high school I was put in honors classes because the normal classes weren't challenging enough. Academics, relationships, faith, and an overall great environment made Praise Christian Academy an experience that I am forever grateful for."



"The Right Foundation! Our journey with Praise Christian Academy began in 2014 when I was not too happy regarding some information I had received about my son's learning abilities from another Christian school. After much deliberation with friends and family, and prayers, I decided it was time to change schools. We were referred to PCA by his then piano teacher, Mrs. Kelly. Once I met the principal, Mrs. Jacobs, I knew that PCA woulds be a great fit for him. She spoke with such grace, compassion, knowledge and above all, unwavering faith. I knew my children would thrive in this environment and I was right. My son began in 4th grade and my daughter in 1st grade. I thank God every day that the first teacher my son had was Mrs. Klipa! You would never understand what it means to teach with a balance of both firmness and love until you visit her classroom. This goes for all the teachers my children were privileged to have at PCA. Both children graduated with honors in 8th grade, and my son is now in college while my daughter is in 10th grade at another Christian school. Both children continue to thrive in their education, and whenever they are complimented on how well they're doing academically, I always say they had the right academic and spiritual foundation at Praise Christian Academy."
