PCCS admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at PCCS. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administering its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
WHY CONSIDER PRIVATE EDUCATION? Check out the CAPE summary of statistics regarding private education vs. public education. 24% of United States schools are private (80% are Christian) with an average enrollment of 5 million. In a recent study of college entrance exams, it was shown that students who graduated from religious and independent schools scored substantially higher than public school students which elevated the national SAT average. Sadly, Texas public schools are currently ranked 34th in the nation as of January 2014. Further, studies also indicate that private school students are more likely to attend college and get a college degree than public school students. Overall, research reveals that teacher and parent satisfaction is higher in private schools, and students are given more opportunities through advanced and diverse course load and have more demanding graduation requirements--consistent with the PCCS program. Check out the Academic Graduation requirements and curricula choices at PCCS under the Academics tab.
PCCS on a space-available basis is pleased to enroll electives-only students (e.g. homeschool students). Those students must apply to PCCS through the Admissions Portal (see the "New Families Apply Here" box, above) in the usual way and pay the Application Fee of $145 through the Admission Portal and submit all Immunization, Birth Certificate, References, Criminal Background check and the like. If the student is interested in competing in athletics at the high school level, the athletics league requires that electives-only students also provide a transcript and semester-by-semester grade cards. Once the admissions process is complete, the family will sign the Enrollment Contract (the Family Annual Enrollment Fee of $300 is waived) and are then ready to select elective classes. Elective courses are $100 per semester per class (not counting any athletic team fee that may apply if a student is enrolling in an athletics class). In some cases, electives-only student may enroll in a core class such as Chemistry, Physics, Forensic Science, Economics and the like on a space-available basis contingent upon their completing requisite preparatory courses and paying a prorated core rate for such courses.
International students are welcome at PCCS! PCCS holds an I-20 and is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students. The Enrollment Process is somewhat different than described above. A student interested in attending PCCS must first contact the school's administrator at e-mail: email@example.com to express interest and provide a student profile (e.g., host home needs or placement if one is already obtained, English proficiency level orally and written (poor, average, above average, proficient--a Skype interview may be required to confirm proficiency). They must also demonstrate an ability to finance their education and living expenses. References are required. Once this is completed, the student must submit the Enrollment Application (Admissions Portal, above), birth certificate, school records, and medical records. The Tuition Chart (link on this page) applies to all PCCS students. Payments may be made either by credit card or electronic transfer. Once the student had met all enrollment requirements and a host home is confirmed, then PCCS will forward an Enrollment Contract which must be signed, scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once received with the FES Enrollment fee of $450, the student's I-20 will be sent and enrollment is complete.
