The foundation for Chestnut Ridge Christian Academy was laid by Calvary Baptist Church when in 1982 it began Calvary Christian School because many of its families were concerned about the spiritual and academic growth of their children.

CRCA was reorganized in 1991 after Calvary Baptist Church felt it could no longer support the school as a ministry. Again, concerned parents formed the nucleus of Chestnut Ridge Christian Academy, named for the mountains which can be seen to the east of the school. In the fall of 1991, the school opened its doors with 47 students in grades K-6.

In 1993, as a direct answer to prayer, the Uniontown Hospital accepted the school board’s offer to buy the building it had been renting for several years. Thus the old Boyle school became the permanent home of Chestnut Ridge Christian Academy. Also in that year, CRCA joined the Association of Christian Schools International.

In 1995, CRCA expanded to include a seventh grade and the following year added the eighth grade. A four-year-old kindergarten and ninth grade were added in 2004. Tenth grade was added for the 2005-06 school year, eleventh grade was added for the 2006-07 school year, and twelfth grade was added for the 2007-08 school year.

God’s hand of blessing has been evident in the growth and stability of the school. We continue to seek God’s direction, however, and do not assume upon His mercy to us. We welcome families who desire to be a part of the exciting ministry of Christian education.
