Pittsburgh Christian Academy (PCA) marked its grand opening with a ribbon cutting on the first day of school, Wednesday morning, August 31, 2022. The new school opened with an enrollment of 150 students and 38 staff members to serve Pre-K through Grade 12 students in West Mifflin and throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area.

In May of this year a group of educators saw the need for a school that promoted Christian discipleship, growth in faith, and academic excellence. PCA was formed with a vision for serving and bringing together a wide variety of Christian denominations with a focus on Biblical teaching to prepare students who will grow to serve their families, their communities, and especially their God. 

The PCA vision was generously supported by the Source Church of Pittsburgh, who shared a similar heart for serving the community. Source Church had already purchased the former Emerson Elementary school building and opened it in the spring for worship, youth and family ministry, and community outreach. The church agreed to rent a portion of its building to PCA to independently run a nondenominational school. 

PCA incorporated in May and soon thereafter began hiring staff and enrolling students to a program that offers a wide range of academic and athletic programs.  

Even before the doors officially opened, many PCA students began dual enrollment course work through ACC, Grove City, and Liberty University, with additional institutions to come on board. Several students are already on pace to earn a semester or more of college credit before they graduate from PCA. 

Teacher Jamie Guimaraes already feels “a sense of family and belonging,” and believes “PCA is a place where everyone tangibly serves one another.” PCA is “a place to call home.” Teacher Danielle Nowalk echoes the same refrain: “From the moment I walked in, PCA felt like a family.” 

PCA offers a full curriculum that will prepare each student individually for a chosen career path in higher education, trades, business, ministry, arts, or other chosen fields. “In addition to regular course work, we will work to enhance opportunities through vocational and technical partnerships, dual enrollment, and à la carte classes for home schoolers,” says John Isett, Middle and High School Principal.  

Pittsburgh Christian Academy is located in the Source Church building at 1922 Pennsylvania Avenue, West Mifflin, PA 15122.   Learn more by visiting, browsing their Facebook page, following on Instagram, or calling the office at 412-235-9757.
