Equipping students to seek Truth, pursue academic excellence,
and live with integrity.
PVCA ADMISSIONS NEEDS YOUR HELP
The Association of Christian Schools International has 5,200 member schools worldwide (2,200 United States, 3,000 Globally). Since 2009, ACSI normally averages 150+ school closures each year.
Pioneer Valley Christian Academy is the ONLY preschool through grade 12, private, Christian school in Western Massachusetts. Without PVCA, the only choices available to parents are Catholic schools, secular private schools, public schools, or homeschooling. With Biblical Truth woven into a competitive curriculum, parents can trust that their student is receiving a quality education with no other agenda other than traditional Christian values. With enrollment down for the 2022-2023 academic year, PVCA is in need of referrals. Word of mouth marketing is the most successful tool for admissions. To ensure PVCA keeps its doors open for many years to come, please consider helping in the following ways.
PROVIDE A NAME
Providing a name is THE BEST and MOST EFFECTIVE way to advance enrollment.
A referral can be a family member, a friend,
a parent from a former school, a neighbor, a coworker, etc.
