From School to System of Schools

PCA's expansion is in response to the growth of the student body as parents select PCA to partner with them, establishing students for life.

What began as one campus in Plano has grown into a School System of six schools serving more than 2000 students.

Prestonwood Christian Academy was established in 1997, PCA Virtual (Online) in 2009, PCA North in 2014, St. Timothy Christian Academy relocated to the Plano location in 2018, The King's Academy opened in South Dallas in 2019.

We are grateful for the growth and expansion and give all praise and glory to God.  We will continue in our mission to develop faith-filled Lions who will live bold, courageous lives for Christ.

Expanding the Vision

Honoring the past and moving forward in the  opportunities of the future.

As we reflect on 25 years of impact, let’s be reminded that God has orchestrated every step along the journey. From small beginnings to the new expansions, we continue to daily hear stories of Christ’s impact on the lives of our students, teachers, alumni, and community. We are grounded in proud traditions, and roaring forward into God’s gift of future opportunities.
