Our neighbors in York have a short, accessible commute to the gorgeous 50-acre Portsmouth Christian Academy campus situated along the Bellamy River in Dover. Like so many Maine communities, York welcomes an abundance of visitors for the tourist season, but is defined by the year-round residents and families that call it home. We are glad to welcome parents and students looking for a private Christian school in York, ME, as a part of the PCA scholastic community. As the largest non-denominational Christian school in New England, we enroll students from Preschool through our Upper School. We help shape Christ-centered graduates who impact the world for good.
The Portsmouth Christian Academy Mission
Portsmouth Christian Academy’s mission is “to honor God joyfully by inspiring students to maximize their God-given potential.” Our faculty and staff each have a strong sense of calling to this work, and it motivates us to equip every one of our students to make a unique impact in our increasingly complex world. We hope to see that begin right here at home in Dover and York. Our rigorous academic standards, leadership training, and joy in serving others are some of the most important ways we nurture the character and potential God has created in your student.
