God has established Prestonwood Christian Academy for the purpose of impacting lives for eternity through biblically-based and Christ-centered education. This vision and mission statement articulates the purpose behind the school’s existence. When coupled with seven core values and a series of operating principles, this mission statement provides Prestonwood Christian Academy with an operating constitution that guides all of its policies, procedures, and practices.

Inclement Weather Information
It may be necessary to close or delay the start of school because of ice, snow or other inclement weather. Additionally, school may need to dismiss early due to inclement weather. It is important that you tune in to a local radio or TV station when there is a question regarding inclement weather or dangerous road conditions. We update the PCA website and Facebook page and notify most major area radio and television stations of any delays, closures or early dismissals. It is, however, the decision and responsibility of the area radio and television stations to air such notices.
