Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Pacific Christian Academy!

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Pacific Christian Academy is a unique community of parents, students, teachers, and staff who love God.  We believe the most inspiring, complete education comes when ALL aspects of each child – spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental – are addressed in a loving, encouraging, and engaging school environment.

In these uncertain times, we know finding the right school and the right program for your child(ren) can be a daunting responsibility. We know the importance of your decision, so we welcome you to visit our campus and talk to our staff about PCA options.  On campus, there is a sense of freedom and confidence between our students and staff that creates an atmosphere that is alive and vibrant. We encourage our young ones to love God and each other, as we teach them in an environment of hope and high expectations. We are intensely involved in training and mobilizing this generation of young people to become an army of champions who are passionate in their walk with God and boldly love, lead, and serve others.

For many of our students and staff, this is their home away from home; they spend their days with people who feel like family. Pacific Christian Academy is truly equipping the next generation.  In traditional and homeschool programs, we support parents who choose to educate their children to become socially relevant leaders, prepared for higher achievement.

 We lead our region in diversity; educating students whose cultures are from all over the world. We offer dual credit classes in our high school, so that graduates leave with university credits.  We support students at every grade level who need additional help to learn. We prepare our students for higher education, always with a biblical worldview. We offer an engaging education and are constantly searching for and developing new, more effective ways of teaching our students.

 We look forward to sharing our vision with you, and invite you and your family to visit and tour our campus. Spending time on our campus as an “Eagle for a Day,” and shadowing one of our student-leaders, allows your child to have a first-hand experience of what makes our school so unique. Please contact us today to set an appointment and learn how we are "equipping the next generation" to lead and serve.

Serving God,

 Debbie Schindler

Head of School

History and Future of PCA

Pacific Christian Academy was founded by Pastors Casey and Wendy Treat in 1984 as a ministry of Christian Faith Center. The church and school thrived and saw many students and families strengthened in their relationship to God. In 2007, Christian Faith Center and the school moved to Federal Way. At that time, it was determined that the church and school should become two distinct ministries. In 2009, Pacific Christian Academy became its own non-profit organization, focused on providing an excellent Christian education to the families of Federal Way and the surrounding communities. Today, the church and school enjoy a blessed relationship of support and ministry. The school leases space from Christian Faith Center, grateful for a relationship that allows both ministries to work side by side.

For 34 years, Pacific Christian Academy has provided families with premier, God-centered education to prepare children to lead lives of great promise and purpose. It is with this focus on the future - and great excitement, that we announce that effective July 1, Pacific Christian Academy transitioned to its official legal name of Pacific Christian Academy, having previously been known as Christian Faith Schools.

The new name remains a testament to who we are- Pacific for our beloved Pacific Northwest, Christian for our singular focus on Jesus Christ and his teaching, and Academy for our dedication to providing our students with strong academics and higher education preparation. We anticipate God's continued blessing on PCA as we strive to complete our mission in the lives of children and young adults.

Pacific Christian Academy is committed to offering families a superior Bible-based education that equips students to be socially relevant leaders who are fully prepared for higher achievement.
