Prunedale Christian Academy


” But just as you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness, and in your love for us – see that you excel also in this grace of giving.” (2 Corinthians 8:7)

Why Give?
Generous contributions from people just like you have made it possible for PCA to continue and impact our community.

Given from a desire for quality Christian education, and to further the Kingdom of God, your gifts can help provide not only improved academic programs and facilities, but also give the school a margin of excellence.

PCA’s current tuition is less than half of the national average of $15,000—the cost to educate one child per year. Thus, financial gifts are used to bridge this gap in the operating budget as well as enhance academic programs, curriculum, teacher development and facilities. Combined with gifts from generous others, your gifts will help to make PCA the premier private school in the Monterey County area.

Not only can you derive a degree of satisfaction from giving to affect future generations, you can also benefit from our tax-exempt 501(c) 3 organization status in the form of income tax deductions.

Your Private Gifts Support:

  • Students—scholarships and program/curriculum enhancements
  • Faculty—funds to hire and retain dedicated and gifted teachers, as well as staff training and development
  • Facilities—gifts primarily pay for the renovation and construction of buildings, furnishings and equipment, science labs and technology that bring those buildings to life
  • Academic Programs and Initiatives—new course offerings to keep pace with the ever-changing demands and enlarging world-view of our culture
  • Extracurricular and Fine Arts Programs—programs that enhance the development of well-rounded students
  • General Support—on-going programs and critical needs that arise throughout the year

All Gifts Make a Difference! All levels of gifts and donations have a positive and lasting impact on PCA.
