Preparing Students to Impact the World for Good.

Situated on over 50 picturesque acres along the Bellamy River in Dover, NH, Portsmouth Christian Academy is New England’s largest independent Christian school, serving 650+ students from NH, ME, and MA in pre-K through high school. Our students are inspired to maximize their God-given potential so that they can go out and impact the world for good through their careers, churches and families.

Excellent Academics

Learn about PCA’s differentiated learning approach that meets each student where they’re at in their learning, providing opportunities for every child to grow into their God-given potential. In comparison to other New Hampshire school districts, PCA ranks in the top 5% across the state.

Our students consistently test higher than the state and national averages in Math and English, and our Mosaic Learning Team makes sure no student is left behind.

Parent Partnership

As a Christian school, we know that parents are given the high calling of raising their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. We partner with parents in the education of their children, keeping open lines of communication and supporting the role of our parents at every stage.

Peeks of the Week, Teacher Conferences and ongoing discussions about your child’s learning style and success in the classroom keep you in the driver’s seat as the expert on your child.

Impacting the World for Good

Our families come from 55+ towns across Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. While the details behind each family’s search are different, every family at PCA wants their son or daughter to be ready to make an impact on the world for good. From the classroom to the stage, to the basketball court, our graduates are ready to be leaders in their universities, future homes, and church communities.

We chose PCA because we were seeking a rigorous, Christian education and a place where we felt our son would be seen as an individual. We wanted his God-given purpose to be cultivated and nurtured.
