By Su Sheridan Pusch Ridge Christian Academy
Pusch Ridge Christian Academy is a private DK-12 school serving Christian families across Tucson.
Our mission is “to teach our students to become like Christ through classical Christian education within a covenant community”.
We strive for excellence throughout the curriculum, teaching from a biblical worldview, so that each student is ready to engage the world with gospel truth. The school’s classic teaching model provides a solid academic foundation to prepare students for the future.
Our families come from various economic backgrounds, with 92% of our students receiving some form of scholarship assistance.
By removing financial barriers and helping new and existing families afford a Christian education, tax credits are a vital part of school income, accounting for 56% of the school’s annual income.
“We chose Pusch Ridge Christian Academy because of its great reputation for providing quality education, dedicated teachers, and deeper teaching from God,” said parent Lee Tompkins. “Sending our three boys to a private school was the best decision my wife and I made in educating our sons. Through it all, God provided. It is good.”
Tompkins said the school has done a good job of explaining how tax credits work and finding scholarship opportunities.
