Our Foundation

Parkway Christian Academy offers a more than 40 -year history of demonstrating strength and success in the classroom; preparing the next generation of students to change the world.

Our focus is on the whole student as we prepare him or her academically, spiritually, and emotionally to be fully engaged and abundantly equipped to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.

Our dedicated faculty, facilities, and extra-curricular offerings provide every student with the opportunity to explore and develop their God-given gifts and talents.

Students are provided the opportunities to live out their faith as they participate in community outreach events, small groups, mentoring programs, chapel, and leadership opportunities.

Our Community

As a pre-kindergarten – 12th grade campus, our students are part of a community that builds intentional relationships and provides academic programming that is aligned across all grade levels.  Our students represent several churches in the Lakeland area and come from all of our surrounding communities.  A large percentage of our families receive financial support.

Our Programs

Our vigorous academic programs have consistently resulted in state and exam scores that culminate in a graduation rate of 100%.  We are seeking membership with the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS), SSACS (Sunshine State Association of Christian Schools), and seeking accreditation with NACSAA (North American Christian School Accrediting Agency).  A wide variety of extra-curricular activities offer students the opportunity to participate in band, choir, and drama.

Tuition and Fees

At Parkway, your child will discover his or her God-given potential, make lifelong friends, learn to serve, and graduate ready to make a difference in the
community.  While this will require the investment of your financial resources, we believe you will see that this is a worthy investment in your child.

All student billing accounts must be paid in full before Parkway Christian Academy will release academic records/transcripts to another school.  Academic records/transcripts may also be withheld for not returning library or school equipment.  Transcripts and diplomas will be withheld if a senior’s account has not been paid in full by the last day of the academic year.

It is our desire to remain fiscally responsible and to be good stewards of the financial commitment our families have made to their children’s education.  As such, to maintain a sound operating budget, Parkway Christian Academy has set in place a policy of payment in the event that a student is withdrawn.

Parents withdrawing their students from Parkway Christian Academy during the school year will be responsible to pay the entire month’s tuition that the student was enrolled.  For example, if a student is withdrawn on the fifth of the month, the entire month must be payed upon withdrawal.  Tuition will not be prorated within a month.

An enrollment fee of $250 is due upon enrollment for each child in the family.   Enrollment fees are non-refundable.
