The Our Kids review of Prairie Christian Academy
Prairie Christian Academy began its life in 1938, founded by J. Fergus Kirk to provide education reflective of the values of the Prairie Bible Institute with which the school was associated. Since then the school has grown considerably. In 2003 it joined the Golden Hills School District, a division within the provincial public school system—called charter schools in Alberta—and has been publicly funded ever since. As such, it’s one of a very few boarding schools in Canada that falls within the purview of the public system, and perhaps the only one that delivers the curriculum through a Christian lens. Students from Alberta pay no tuition to attend. The setting is rural, creating a nice space in which to learn and grow, set somewhat apart from the noise and bustle of urban life.
