As Pennsylvanians, we appreciate the ways our state recognizes school choice. One way PA helps Pennsylvania’s children is with the EITC! Watch the video to learn more. This is a program that could help your child attend a private school OR a way you can help create private school scholarships if you owe PA income tax! Go here to learn more!

Love Christian education? Partner with us for #GivingTuesday! Every one of our schools works very hard to keep tuition as low as possible! Our schools are thousands to tens-of-thousands of dollars less expensive than many of the non-Christian private schools in the Greater Pittsburgh area, while giving students great educations in wholesome, loving, safe environments!
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. Please consider joining the many school families, alumni, churches, businesses, and friends who support Greater Works Christian School. Go here to give!
Penn Christian Academy

Special Opportunity: Donor matching gifts to Trinity Christian School!

Our goal is to achieve $50,000 by the end of the school year, which will turn into $100,000 because of our donor match! Together, we can move the TCS Endowment closer to the million dollar mark, achieving one of our long-term goals for the fund. Go here to give!
Scholé Academy Lecture Hall Presents
Ecclesiastes: What the Strangest Book in the Bible Teaches Us About Education
with Author/Teacher/Consultant Josh Gibbs
Monday, December 6, 2021 | 7:30pm ET
This lecture might interest some of our friends and members of Greater Pittsburgh Christian Schools Network.
From Scholé Academy: No book in the Bible offers a more glum assessment of this life, or inspires deeper yearning for the life to come, than Ecclesiastes. This glum assessment is a caution for those who believe that classical education can “change the world” or that reading old books can help students “get ahead in the world.” And yet, Ecclesiastes also insists that refusing to “love the world or the things of the world” will actually make a man’s life tolerable, joyful, and spiritually fruitful.
This event is free to attend, but registration is required. Click here to register for this Lecture Hall event. (Nota bene: Personal information provided in the registration process will be shared with Josh Gibbs, owner of Gibbs Classical.)
