Admission to Post-secondary Schools

High school diplomas do not necessarily grant admission to post-secondary educational institutions. Students from Prairie Christian Academy seeking admission to any post-secondary institution should check the catalogue of the institution they wish to attend for admission requirements and then plan their program accordingly. Students from PCA have attended major universities and colleges throughout the world.
