About Us

Poudre Community Academy (PCA)  is a small alternative school that serves 200 students, Grades 8-12, in the Poudre School District.  This small personalized program allows students to find success when they may not have been able to do so in other school settings.

PCA focuses on personal accountability and community support.  As a small community we are "in it together" as each student searches for their personal success.  Students are encouraged to use their voice and advocate for themselves.  Our staff is completely dedicated to the whole child.  We are here to help academically and emotionally.

In addition, we serve our larger community through our Wednesday Service Learning.  Every Wednesday, students go out into the community to work in various service related projects.  These have included Catholic Charities Soup Kitchen, Wellington Dog Rescue, Art in the Community, Give Next, environment clean-up, and other projects.  This counts towards the students grade and they also receive credit toward graduation.

PCA students have access to FRCC programs, dual enrollment opportunities on and off campus, athletics and other school activities.
