Student Life

Dear PCCA Family and Friends,

The rich tradition of Pine Castle Christian Academy continues! This is the most exciting time in the life of the school that God has masterfully orchestrated! A new campus with the same Christ centered values, academic excellence and plentiful extracurricular activities. As the Dean of Students for the entire school of K3 – 12th grade, my approach to leadership is simple…show unconditional love, grow young leaders, support classroom and campus consistencies, develop proper relationships with students, parents and staff, and encourage character driven integrity to all associated with PCCA as regulars or quests.

I love my job! My energy is increased when I work with students. I enjoy getting to personally know them and working with their parents in developing the students unique gifts and abilities in a Christ-like direction. One of my favorite scriptures is 1 Peter 4:10, “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others faithfully administering grace in its various forms.” I am excited to lead others to serve in their individual ways focusing on character qualities such as respect and responsibility.

Whether we have met or not, I am honored to serve your family and will do my best to glorify God in speech and actions. Thank you for your support and prayers for my role and the entire ministry of Pine Castle Christian Academy.

In Him,

Mark Ritchhart, Student Development Director
