The History of PCCA

PCCA_2329In May 2000, a local, church-sponsored Christian school closed its doors. A group of parents, teachers, and community leaders rallied together with a common vision to create a new school. The school would be a parent-led, and not be affiliated with any one local church. The school would represent all the local churches in the Kay County area and provide a Bible-based education with outstanding curriculum and teachers.

In June 2000, the first school board for Ponca City Christian Academy was elected and a principal was hired. Quickly following, the staff was hired, commitments from parents for enrollment were made, a building to lease was found, and in August school began. It was a God-sized task.

By the end of the first year, PCCA had outgrown the building it was leasing and moved to Angela Hall on the grounds of the Marland Estate. Each year since 2000, PCCA has been working toward the goal of accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Accreditation was awarded in February of 2005.
