Parkside Christian Academy & Cross Factor Academy


Since its founding in 1976, Parkside Christian Academy has been dedicated to educating youth throughout the Boston area. We are composed of two schools: Parkside Christian Academy serves students from Toddlers (15 months) through Grade 6 and Cross Factor Academy serves grades 7 – 12.  PCA/CFA is a supportive interdependent educational community that unleashes students to reach their true potential – spiritually, academically and in service to others. Parkside and Cross Factor create an environment where Extraordinary Achievement is seen as Ordinary. more »​

Science Olympiad Update

Our Team was the youngest ( and most inexperienced) it has been since we took our first team. Despite that we received Ribbons ( top 6 or higher place) in 3 events-Crave the Wave ( Caleb Buon/Caleb Dixon), Road Scholar ( Caleb Dixon /Wagner Philippeaux) s and Write it Do it (Devin Ruch/ Sima Williams). That ties the most ribbons we received in the past 4 years and 2 of the ribbon winners ( 4th place in Write it do it) were our youngest participants in the 6th grade! Overall, again despite losing some our strongest participants from last year and having a very young team, and probably from the smallest school involved, we finished in the same place as we did last year ( 16th out of 34 teams in the state). Special Thanks goes out to Mrs. Buon who was an awesome coach, who kept the student positive and working hard, and was in inspiration to me as we pushed forward with the B team this year. And more special thanks goes out to Mrs. Ruch who was able to Chaperone at the last minute, helped some our youngest participants make it to their events, and was courageous to stand up to some rowdy college students and represented Cross Factor s so honorably! You go!
