Join us March 11, 6-8 pm for the Winter Athletics Banquet
It is our goal at Portsmouth Christian Academy to provide competitive athletic teams that will represent Christ and our school with pride. Our coaches make every effort to teach not only the rules and skills for each sport, but also the rules and skills necessary for life. Portsmouth Christian Academy involves its student-athletes in interscholastic sports in order to glorify and honor God with the talents and abilities He has given. We believe athletics are a great tool to build Christian character, to teach discipline, and to learn how to overcome adversity and challenges with a courageous spirit. PCA understands the invaluable role athletics can have in developing a student-athlete, and is thus committed to continually strengthening the athletic program.

There are currently 17 different teams being offered at the upper school level (competing in the NHIAA) and 13 teams at the junior high level. Some highlights of PCA’s Athletic Accomplishments include, but are not limited to, State Championships in Basketball (2004 Girls) and Baseball (2010), Individual State Champions in Track and Field, and NHIAA Sportsmanship Banners from 2003, 2006, and 2010. Additional opportunities are available at the Junior Varsity level in girls’ volleyball, and boys’ and girls’ basketball.
