School buses come to our schools!

Q. When does a public school district have to provide transportation to a
nonpublic school?

A. When a school district provides transportation for its public pupils, it must
provide transportation services to nonpublic pupils of the same grade level
that it is providing for its own pupils. The nonpublic school must be nonprofit
and located within ten miles of the district’s boundary, measured by the
nearest public road. If the school building in which the pupil is enrolled
is not located within the ten-mile distance, the nonpublic pupil is not eligible
for transportation, nor are his parents eligible for payment towards
transportation costs.

Q. Is the local school district that transports my child to a nonpublic
school required to transport her on days when the nonpublic school
is in session and the public school is closed?

A. Yes, unless the closure is due to weather conditions.

Here are ways to give to any of our wonderful, deserving schools!

Cheswick Christian Academy
Your gifts can become scholarships with the Tom Mellars Scholarship Fund!

Former CCA student Jamie Aiken has initiated the establishment of a scholarship fund* in memory of Thomas Mellars. Tom was with the school at its inception in 1978, and served faithfully until 1983 when he unexpectedly died on the job of a sudden heart attack. Jamie Aiken’s generous gift, and all other donations to the fund, will be applied to the tuition accounts of current students experiencing financial hardship. Go here to give!

Greater Works Christian School
Your gifts help students year round!

Did you know that tuition covers only sixty percent of our operating expenses? This funding gap must be made up through fundraising and donations to our school.

Here’s the whole championship bracket


Here’s an explanation of Sections and Classes:

Classification is determined by the number of students in a high school. In soccer, the largest class is 4A (think schools the size of Mt. Lebanon, Upper St. Clair, or Penn Trafford). Trinity, Eden, and Beaver County Christian School are all in 1A.

In Class 1A, Trinity is grouped in Section 2, and as such, plays the teams in Section 2 twice a season and those games determine their record. (In other words, those are their conference games.) In Section 2, they came in 2nd place, after Greensburg Central Catholic, with a conference record of 6-3-1. (6 wins, 3 losses, and 1 tie.)

BCCS is grouped in Section 1. In Section 1, they came in 3rd place with a conference record of 5-5.
Eden is grouped in Section 3. In Section 3, they came in 2nd with a conference record of 10-2.

In all of Class 1A (all teams listed in the chart below), Trinity Christian School is ranked 6th out of the 16 teams who made it to the playoffs. They will be playing Riverside (ranked 11th with a record of 5-5-0). BCCS is ranked 13th and will be playing Bentworth (ranked 4th with a record of 9-0-1). Eden is ranked 5th and will be playing Serra Catholic (ranked 12th with a record of 5-3-2).

The bracket shows the path to the WPIAL Championship (likely on November 5 at 8pm but subject to change) at Highmark Stadium where the Riverhounds play.
