Now under the name of Prairie Christian Academy, Prairie General Education has been operating since 1938 as a ministry of Prairie College. Back then, Prairie’s founder, J. Fergus Kirk was concerned that his children and others in the community had a Christ centered education. Growing from the original class of 11, PCA now has approximately 350 students in its pre Kindergarten to Grade 12 programs. Students have come from all over the world to study in these halls and graduate into hundreds of vocations and careers.
In September 2003 steps were made to form Prairie Christian Academy, an alternate school under the Golden Hills School District. This decision not only increased resources for our educational system, but also gave the primary stakeholders – the parents – more of a governing position in their children’s education. The distinctive of Biblically based teaching and discipleship is still the cornerstone of Prairie Christian Academy. We embrace the godly heritage that is ours, and look forward to the future of continuing to provide quality education that is fully integrated with God’s word and Christian principles.
