Poetry Community Christian School

Est. 2002; Fully Accredited 2006

On-campus classes have been suspended in light of the recent developments related to the COVID-19 virus and health official recommendations for schools.  E-Day Distance Learning is scheduled for these days to continue learning progress.  Fortunately, PCCS has utilized E-Days for snow days in the past with success!  Parents of enrolled students should check the Sycamore School Management System daily for communications from teachers regarding E-Day Distance Learning for all grades.


The PCCS Board of Directors and Officers will continue to monitor the situation and communicate timely as to how future weeks will be handled.  Thank you for your support and patience as teachers, staff and the school's Leadership Team works to keep our PCCS community safe, healthy, and learning.  Please continue with prayers that this situation resolves quickly.  

During this week, PCCS Offices will be open Monday-Thursday, Noon - 5 p.m.  This notice will appear so long as on-campus classes are suspended.

Why choose private Christian education?

Achieving Excellence!
And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ.  Philippians I:9-10
