Relationship sets PCS apart from other schools. Through small class sizes, teachers invest individually into their students and students are mentored in healthy peer relationships. New students and parents often comment that PCS is a family into which they are welcomed. High school students befriend elementary students and extracurricular activities, such as sports, are inclusive to all skills and abilities.
Graduates from PCS are accepted into colleges and universities across the country. Students are prepared through engaging academics that are taught from the perspective of a Christian worldview. High school students have the opportunity to participate in dual enrollment online courses in order to earn both high school and college credit.
Parents have the primary and God-given responsibility of educating their children. PCS is honored to partner with parents in this endeavor. Teacher-parent communication is a vital component in our school. Additionally, parents are invited to volunteer at the school by supervising lunch, assisting in the classroom, chaperoning a field trip, etc. We highly value our parent community!

Across all grades, students at PCS have a daily Bible class. All students actively hide God’s Word in their hearts through Scripture memory. The student body gathers for a weekly chapel service each Monday morning. Chapel services incorporate student-led worship and a short message. Additionally, biblical training is not only taught in Bible class or in weekly chapel services. A Christian worldview is a part of the framework of every subject matter. Students are continually pointed towards their Creator and Savior and encouraged to grow their relationship with Him.
Yes. PCS students gather in a weekly chapel service each Monday morning. Chapel begins with worship, led by a student worship team. Speakers alternate each week so students get to hear messages from local pastors, teachers, and even high school seniors. We believe that corporate worship is important and our student body enjoys gathering together each week.
