Stride Christian Academy is an innovative 2nd-12th grade program in Marysville, WA. We're reinventing education, and your family can be a part of it.
The Stride Christian Academy mission is to inspire each child and parent who enters our doors to find a calling that will change the world.
A 21st century school in Marysville, WA
Stride Christian Academy partners with Family Academy and uses the Learning Design and methodologies of the Acton Academy network – a network of true learner-driven micro schools started in Austin in 2009 – and considered by many to be a leading model of K-12 innovation in the United States.
We believe it is the most nurturing, deep-learning, student-centered learning environment in the world, and we're thrilled to share it with intentional families in our community.
