Putting Our Faith into Action
Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Providence Christian Academy has been abundantly blessed with numerous accomplishments that we can point to with great pride. One of the areas where we have experienced the blessing of God’s provision is through generous gifts from our supporters. These gifts have allowed us to continuously enhance our facilities. In 2014, PCA made a significant addition to the campus adding more than 40,000 square feet.
As we move through the 2019-20 academic year, we are once again blessed to be experiencing significant growth. Over the past few years, enrollment has grown by more than 40% and we have added more than 250 new students to our school. Few schools across the country have grown at this rate. God is indeed abundantly blessing our school!
Our vision for the future is based on our mission and our desire for excellence. Our passion and commitment is to be the very best independent, Christian school we can possibly be. We are preparing our students to be leaders for the future and we must develop them in a way that speaks to excellence in every facet of PCA. This, of course, includes our facilities and the need for expansion is critical.
Our growth has outpaced our facilities and we are once again struggling to keep up with the demand for the unique Christian educational experience we provide. A master site planning committee has determined that our most immediate need is for additional Upper School classroom space and a new, larger gymnasium to be utilized for high school sports, physical education, and other needs.
Our plan is to add eight classrooms, two science labs, office space, and meeting space. The gymnasium will have a seating capacity for 1,000 visitors and will include a weight room, locker rooms, and much needed storage. In addition, we will add extensively to our parking capacity, relocate the Lower School playground, and widen the two entrances we have off of DeJarnette Lane. The total cost to complete this project is expected to be approximately $11.5 million.
While much of the funding for this new project has been committed, we still must raise additional resources to completely underwrite the funding for this project. The BUILDING EXCELLENCE campaign is our path to finish strong.
Our hope is that you will prayerfully consider how you can help PCA reach the goal of adding these much-needed facilities to our campus. Your generosity will have a significant impact on our ability to provide an amazing educational experience for our students.
Our mission is to teach students to seek God’s truth and to equip them with the tools for lifetime of learning. As we seek to achieve this, we know the stakes are high and we are confident that those who love this school and want us to thrive will come forward with the resources to ensure that we are living out this mission. Thank you for your generosity!
With deepest gratitude,
Julie Knox, Chair of the Board of Trustees
