Established in 1999, PHCA is an accredited preschool and kindergarten through 12th grade school. PHCA is a ministry of Plaza Heights Baptist Church, a church who believes the Bible is the inerrant Word of God. Because we believe this, you can rest assured that your child is taught the truth based on a solid Biblical foundation. Our primary focus at PHCA is developing godly character in future generations by teaching Biblical principles.
We all know that education starts at birth and is a life-long process. Children need their education to be consistent. Consistency between home, school, and church is very important. One goal we have at Plaza Heights Christian Academy is to have the Bible be the integrating factor in all that we do. We are committed to teaching students Biblical principles that reinforce what is taught in the home.
At PHCA our mission is to assist parents in providing their children with a superior education and a firm foundation of Christian values, equipping them with skills to impact their world as devoted followers of Jesus Christ. "Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6)
Our Statement of Philosophy and Purpose
Plaza Heights Christian Academy is owned, operated and governed by Plaza Heights Baptist Church. We are dedicated to academic excellence as we teach from a Christ-centered perspective. We believe the promises and commands God gives us in His Word. We believe “children are a heritage from the Lord” as it says in Psalm 127. We believe that we should impress God’s commandments and values on our children’s hearts “when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up” as it says in Deuteronomy 6. We believe God’s promise in Proverbs 22:6 that says “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Our hope and goal is that every student will not only leave here understanding how to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, but that we will have helped instill in them a true desire to be a “devoted follower of Jesus Christ.”
Since God's love extends equally to all people, Plaza Heights Christian Academy welcomes and encourages all children regardless of sex, race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin to apply for admission, financial aid, and any/all programs of the school and does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in the administration of any program of the school.
Plaza Heights Christian Academy accepts students entering Kindergarten through 12th grade upon successful completion of registration requirements. These requirements include placement testing for students entering Kindergarten through 12th grade, a review of their previous school records, and providing evidence that the parents/guardians share in the goals of the school based upon its philosophy and purpose.
The biblical and philosophical goal of Plaza Heights Christian Academy is to develop students into mature, Christ-like individuals who will exhibit qualities of a Christ-like life. This involves the school’s understanding and belief of what qualities or characteristics exemplify a Christ-like life. Even though parents may personally believe differently, while enrolled at PHCA, all students are expected to exhibit the qualities of a Christ-like life espoused and taught by the school, and to refrain from certain activities or behavior. Thus, PHCA retains the right to refuse enrollment to, or expel, any student who engages in sexual immorality, including any student who professes to be homosexual/bisexual or is a practicing homosexual/bisexual, as well as any student who condones, supports, or otherwise promotes such practices (Leviticus 20:13 and Romans 1:27).
A child is not officially enrolled until all of the following requirements have been met.
1. The application form (New Students, Returning Students or Preschool/Pre-K)
has been completed and accepted. The application fee of $150 must
accompany the application.
2. Parents have attended an interview with the school administrator and two
members of the school board. Students entering fifth grade and above will be
required to attend the interview.
3. A certified copy of the birth certificate for Kindergarten and 1st grade students must be on file in the school office.
4. Children must have all the required immunizations as specified by Missouri State Law or have appointments to receive the necessary immunizations. If
your child is permitted to begin school on the condition that he/she is in the process of receiving his immunizations, he may attend school only as long as
the immunization process is continued. Upon completion, it is the parent’s responsibility to provide the school office with written documentation that the
child has received the required immunizations. Failure of the parent to continue, complete, and provide proper documentation of the child’s
immunizations will result in the child being removed from school until compliance has been achieved. Missouri law requires that we comply with this
5. If the student is transferring from another school, we must have an authorization form signed by the parent or guardian requesting all records from
previous schools. There must be no outstanding balance owed to the school that you are transferring from.
6. A student will not be readmitted if there is an outstanding tuition balance from previous or prior years.
7. All fees must be paid in full.
8. Financial arrangements for payment of tuition must be made with the school office.
9. A Parent/Student Agreement must be completed and signed by the parent(s) and student.
Your child is not officially enrolled until all of these requirements have been met. Plaza Heights Christian Academy reserves the right to refuse anyone admission based on doctrinal, church, ethical and moral issues. Also, PHCA reserves the right to select students on the basis of academic performance, religious commitment, lifestyle choices, and personal qualifications including a willingness to cooperate with Plaza Heights Christian Academy administration and to abide by its policies.
