Petra Christian Academy offers quality education with comparatively low tuition.
We are a private, independent, non-profit ministry depending on contributions and tuition to fund our operations. Jesus said “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them.” The uncommon, and often sacrificial commitment of our staff and supporters to the ideals of classical Christian education makes our low cost structure and the uncommon quality of our program possible. Our school serves families who want a challenging, Christian-based education in the classical tradition of excellence.
Unlike charter, public, or magnet schools, we get no public money.
We also refuse money from government programs offered to private schools with strings attached. This allows us to be truly “free.” We are free to discuss all truth, regardless of its Christian or political nature. This is vitally important in a classical Christian school where truth is centered on Christ. We are also free from state ISAT testing and staff certification– functions that add bureaucracy to schools without adding quality. In fact, we recruit more engaging Christian teachers who contagiously love learning because of our independence.
This said, private education is a financial commitment. Our stated goal is to remain affordable for families. We offer discounts for multiple children.
