Christian schools have been around for a long time. In America this goes all the way back to the pilgrims, who wanted to make sure their kids could read the Bible. In fact, education as we know it started in the Christian Church literally! The small community would build a church that most of the time doubled as the school until the town could afford to build a separate building. Prayer and Bible study were a part of American Education for over 200 years. Only within the last 30 years have we excluded God from our childrenâ€™s education. This has forced Christians to start all over again.
We have been serving our students and community with quality education since 1972. Our founders desired there to be an alternate educational resource in this area to counteract the liberal agenda within our state educational system. Out of that desire Prunedale Christian Schools emerged and is still partially funded through private resources in order to make this the most economical private school in the area. In essence every child is given a scholarship to PCA because we do not have to charge the full cost of what it actually takes per student to educate them.
