Affordable and Accredited Christian education at PCCS!

Attending an ACCREDITED high school is essential when applying to colleges and universities. It also matters to parents who want schools with outside accountability. PCCS is fully accredited by COGNIA (the parent organization to AdvanEd/Southern Association of Colleges and Schools). It is the world's largest educational accreditor that assesses and measures all aspects of school performance. Each accreditation cycle, PCCS is rated exemplary in parent involvement, integration, and communication as well as meeting all standards related to financial management, leadership, faculty credentials, educational programming, college & career support, learning differences support, admissions, and more. See the left sidebar for HISTORICAL SCORES and the "Why PCCS?" tab for the recent high scores and Re-Accreditation accolades!

Parents seeking AFFORDABILITY will be pleasantly surprised at Poetry's monthly tuition rates, which are less than most pay for day care (ranging from $426-$604 per month). SEE THE "WHY PCCS?" TAB FOR THE TUITION CHART. Reasonable tuition rates are possible because of the school's Parent Partnership Program. "PCCS contractually requires a minimum of five parent partner hours per month for each child enrolled toward operational support such as housekeeping, traffic monitoring, athletics, recess and lunch monitoring, and campus maintenance," notes the school's business administrator. The school reports an average of 1500 parent partner hours per month, which keeps overhead down and ensures parents are integrated into the school.

Parents seeking EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE with a CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION will find it at Poetry. PCCS is not just a private school - it is one where GOD MATTERS. The school is unique in offering College Preparatory Programming as well as a Support Services Program designed to assist students with various learning differences. To gain admission, pre-admission testing is necessary to identify academic proficiencies as well as any academic gaps from prior educational settings or learning differences (to be addressed through summer tutoring, school term tutoring, adjusted grade placement, or assignment to one or more small group classes). See Admissions expectations on the APPLY & ENROLL TAB. PCCS students perform well on national tests and college entrance exams - multiple-year school averages are consistently high

DIVERSE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMING gives students many options! Elementary schedules include two periods of mathematics and several periods of ELAR (English, language arts, reading), while upper school students' core schedules cover mathematics, English literature, and writing, foreign language, history, and science. Dual college credits are gained through the school's partnership with accredited colleges & universities using our own embedded PCCS faculty. "Our high schoolers can undertake more than a year of college credits completed by the time they graduate from PCCS," reports Linda Stapleton, the school's High School Advisor. All students have electives chosen each semester from more than 50 Enrichment Electives Courses including honors English, and science, Christian Soldiers Karate (more than 50 students enrolled, technology courses, physical education, and athletics, Dave Ramsey money management for teens, guitar, piano and voice, lit circles, missions team, study skills & organization, digital awareness, theatre troupe, TSI/SAT/ACT prep, photography, archery, college & career planning, culinary arts, Christian character-building, vo-tech, adulting, and various art classes (e.g. pen art, drawing, painting, design, scripture art). See the Academics tab for a sample Enrichment Electives schedule.

Athletes will enjoy the school's DYNAMIC ATHLETICS PROGRAM. Sports offerings are based upon student interest, where teams will excel. Primary sports include High School and Middle School teams for Girls' Basketball, Boys' Basketball, Baseball, and Softball. Other Sports include Archery (4th-12th), Cheer Squad (Elementary-High School), and Karate (2nd & up). Individual sports have historically included Swimming, Golf, and Track. The school has gained the league recognition at the district, regional and state level in varsity volleyball (State Champions) and district and regional championships in basketball. Track championship medals include the 400m, 800m, mile, shotput, 4x400m relay, 4x200m relay, and the 200m. Several alums are also Junior Olympians and NCAA and NAIA college athletes. Under the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP), our certified instructors prepares students for matches at the on-campus archery range. While academics take first place at PCCS ("no pass, no play"), Athletics continue to play an important part of student life in promoting and developing sportsmanship, offering healthy competition, and utilizing God-given abilities.
