Helping Each Student Discover their God Given Genius
PCA Partners with Mathnasium® to Help Students Better Understand and Appreciate Math
Christian Classical Education
Today, students need more than general knowledge. Petra Christian Academy is a traditional Christ-Centered Classical Christian School, teaching students wisdom, character, and hard work. Our mission is to enlighten young minds and to help them discover their God-given genius. We work hard to prepare each student for college, but more importantly, we strive to develop faithful Christians who know what they believe and why they believe it.
Our Academy incorporates recommendations of Association of Classical Christian Schools. We are a small school of approximately 40 students, gathering in a historic church building built in 1908, with an average class size of ten students. We have a close-knit home-like environment where students develop friendships with like-minded Christians that will last a lifetime. Besides traditional subjects, our students study Singapore Math, Bible, the Russian language, and character development.Learn More

Teacher Led Classes Online
The school year of 2020–2021 will be a year of new challenges and opportunities. Given the uncertainty of the worldwide pandemic, we are setting our students for maximum success by offering live teacher led classes online. Teachers and students will be able to continue to interact with each other. Live interaction will help to ensure that students can successfully progress through their rigorous curriculum and receive teacher assistance throughout their school day. It’s almost as though the student is in a physical classroom. For the first time in six years, Petra Christian Academy will be offering live classes to students outside Boise, Idaho. We are now accepting applications for students throughout the United States and the world. Fill out our student application to secure your space, as spots are limited.
