The History of Ponca City Christian Academy
In May 2000 in Ponca City, Oklahoma 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 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 a 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 lease was established, 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. From the beginning, PCCA worked hard toward the goal of accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ASCI). Accreditation was awarded in February of 2005.
A group of parents, teachers and community leaders rallied together… it was a God-sized task.
Following the 2017-18 school year, Ponca City Christian Academy relocated to the campus of the Marland Children’s Home in Ponca City, Oklahoma. The move was a wonderful blessing for the PCCA community.
