About Us




The school began with the name Spokane Junior Academy as its operation started in 1934 and in 1939 became a recognized school by the Upper Columbia Conference. Palisades Christian Academy (formerly Spokane Junior Academy) has come a long way from those beginning days in the Central Seventh-day Adventist Church basement. Faithful men and women collected cash and materials to build and open SJA on Cleveland Avenue in 1939. During this time you met friends, studied, found spiritual values, and discovered a love of music, sports, the scriptures, or a myriad of other interests.In 1940 the school underwent a building project which built the administrative building and then in 1984 two classrooms and a music room were added. With the relocation to a 39.2-acre site to build a new facility comes a new name, Palisades Christian Academy (PCA).

PCA is part of the world-wide Seventh-day Adventist school network. The Seventh-day Adventist educational system includes elementary and high schools, colleges, and universities in countries around the globe.
