PCCS offers Affordable Private Christian Education. How do we compare? According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the average price of a private high school is $13,030. PCCS Tutition has not increased every year and when that does occur, rate increases have been modest and justified by actual expenses such as faculty and staff paid Blue Cross Blue Shield Medical Coverage. PCCS 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!
