Welcome to Parkway Christian Academy!

We offer a distinctly Christian education for kindergarten, elementary, junior high, and high school students. Our mission is to glorify God, disciple students, and pursue excellence in education, with the Bible as our foundation and Jesus Christ as our focus. Our goal is to prepare the next generation of leaders to impact the world for Christ. Our calling is to be a light that shines in the darkness as an institution that is recognized as offering a relevant 21st century Christian education, transforming lives and reaching the world for Christ.

Admissions Process

We encourage you to explore as many opportunities as possible to find out how we live out our mission to glorify God, disciple students, and pursue excellence.  Come visit us, talk with us, tour our facilities, and meet our faculty and staff.  Our admissions team is here to work with you through each step of the process.

We recommend you begin with the option below that best meets your family’s needs and take advantage of these initial steps in our admissions process to experience all PCA has to offer.  While we believe the activities below are great first steps, you are welcome to begin the online application at any time before, during, or after spending time with us.

When you have determined that Parkway could be a good fit for your family, you are ready to apply.  As part of the application process you will complete the application form, submit a copy of your student’s birth certificate, current grades and test results, and pay the application fee.

Once we have reviewed your completed application, we will contact you to discuss next steps, which may include an interview and student assessment.

Each student’s application is carefully considered by the administration.  All discussions regarding applications are held in strict confidence.  Admission decisions consider the student’s potential for success at PCA and the parent’s desire for a Christ-centered education for their children.  Parents will be notified of the admissions decision in person or in writing; reasons for the decision are not disclosed to applicants.  Parkway Christian Academy reserves the right to grant admittance only to students who we believe meet the criteria outlined in our admissions policy.

Once you are accepted and notified that a seat is available, you may reserve your spot by paying your non-refundable enrollment fee in person at our administration building or online through the link provided by admissions at the time of acceptance.  Enrollment fees are $250 per student.  Once a grade level is full we may offer a wait list.

At Parkway Christian Academy, our dedicated admissions team looks forward to partnering with you as you consider Parkway for your family.  If you have any questions, we can be reached at info@pcalakeland.org or (863) 646-5031.
