Prairie Christian Academy
Prairie Bible Institute and Three Hills are blessed to have an affordable Christian Preschool-Grade 12 option for our children. We are proud to work alongside Prairie Christian Academy in providing excellent Christ-centred education in Three Hills at both the Preschool-Grade 12 and college level. Prairie General Education (now Prairie Christian Academy) has been operating since 1938 and began as an extension of Prairie Bible Institute. Back then, Prairie’s founder, J. Fergus Kirk was concerned that his children and others in the community had a Christ centered education. Growing from the original class of 11, Prairie Christian Academy now has over 300 students in its Preschool to Grade 12 programs. Students have come from all over the world to study in these halls and graduate into hundreds of vocations and careers.
For 65 years, Prairie's General Education was a division of PBI. In September of 2003, steps were made to form Prairie Christian Academy. This school became independent from PBI and is overseen by a non-profit Society made up of alumni and student parents. The Prairie Christian Academy Society then joined the public school system as an alternate school under the Golden Hills School Division. This decision not only increased resources for our educational system, but also gave the primary stakeholders – the parents – more of a governing position in their children’s education. It also allowed the school to retain its Christ-centred focus. The distinctive of Biblically based teaching and discipleship is still the cornerstone of Prairie Christian Academy today.
Prairie Bible Institute, our staff, faculty and student families, value the education provided by our partner and we look forward to serving each other in the years ahead. For more information, please visit www.pca3hills.ca.
