Our History

Park Row Christian Academy has operated at the same location on Park Row Drive in Arlington, since 1968 and shares space with the Park Row Church of Christ. PRCA has evolved from a Thursday school for preschoolers into a five-day-a-week preschool and elementary school. The buildings and grounds have changed many times over the past 45 years. Hundreds of teachers have taught thousands of students from Arlington and surrounding cities.

The original “Children’s Center” was started by a group of volunteer women. In order to be licensed by the State of Texas, the founding board was required to show that there was a need in the community for an early childhood center in Arlington. Fortunately, the Children’s Center pre-registered 100 students the very first time they advertised the school! From the beginning the school’s goal was to be a place where children came to learn. The mission was to help children grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.

In 1999, after receiving donations of $2.5 million, the Children’s Center moved into new, expanded and remodeled preschool and kindergarten facilities. Continuing in the tradition of excellent, foundational education, a first grade class was added in 2000 and Park Row Christian Academy was born! By 2004, PRCA had extended the elementary school through the sixth grade. In 2007, Park Row Christian Academy earned its dual accreditation from NCSA and SACS. In 2012 the school began a Homeschool Enrichment Program to fulfill a need for homeschool families. Because God has richly blessed and sustained the school, Park Row Christian Academy continues to provide affordable, Christian education in a nurturing and safe environment.

“To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen” Philippians 4:20
