Poetry Community Christian School offers Christ-centered education for more than 200 students K-4 through 12th grade.

Founded in 2002, PCCS is fully accredited by the international accrediting organization, COGNIA (parent organization to South Association for College and Schools/SACS Division) and continues to be awarded high accreditation scores. During the most recent accreditation inspection, COGNIA awarded PCCS a score of 369 (well above the average score range of all COGNIA network schools, 278.34-283.33). This high score is not unusual with PCCS scoring in the exemplary range for the last two decades. In all accreditation domains, the school strives for the accreditation standard of "continuous improvement." 


The 12.6 acre campus is located in rural Poetry, Texas, 10 minutes north of Terrell and 25 minutes southeast of Rockwall. The campus is convenient for families from Royse City, Forney, Caddo Mills, Rockwall, Terrell, Quinlan, Kaufman, Wills Point, Scurry, Fate, Poetry and Greenville, while other families and faculty/staff commute from Leonard, Mabank, Wylie, and Balch Springs.

PCCS offers Affordable Christian Education to serve middle class family budgets. How do we compare? According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are 22,400 U.S. private schools with an average tuition of $12,594 (elementary $11,660, secondary $16,144).  PCCS tuition does not increase every year and when that does occur, rate increases have been modest and justified by actual expenses such as faculty and staff paid group medical and vision coverage or increased cost of curriculum and supplies. Our tuition and fees are also lower than local and DFW area fully accredited private schools. PCCS seeks to keep tuition rates within the middle-class family budget without tuition raises every year. Excellence and value at affordable rates!
