Poetry Community Christian School

Est. 2002; Fully Accredited 2006

Vision Statement. The vision of Poetry Community Christian School is to (i) prepare students to be responsible and Christ-centered members of the community by partnering with parents in developing Christian character and academic proficiency, (ii) manage resources responsibly, (iii) continually enhance learning opportunities within a small-school setting, (iv) promote a nurturing and challenging academic environment, and (v) offer reasonable tuition rates to encourage economic diversity in enrollment.

Mission Statement. As reflected in the PCCS Bylaws, the PCCS mission is to lead and guide children through a unique and enriching Christ-centered educational experience consisting of: exemplary college-preparatory programming for core academics; enrichment electives beyond the three “R’s”; specialized instruction for students with learning differences; parent partnering for academic and organizational support; diverse and challenging learning opportunities; Christian teachers intent upon developing well-rounded character, fostering mutual respect, encouraging creativity, and promoting intellectual growth.

Statement of Faith. PCCS parents, students, administrators, teachers & staff believe and adhere to the following: There is one God who created our world. We recognize the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God’s son, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and died to atone for the sins of human kind. Jesus Christ arose from the grave, ascended into Heaven and has provided salvation for those who believe in Him. The Bible is God’s holy guidance for our lives. Christian believers are to live in accordance with God’s commandments and to proclaim the gospel to all the world. The two greatest commandments are: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind” and “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37-30. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

The above Statement of Faith represents that PCCS is committed in belief and lifestyle to conservative Biblical standards of morality and contains those concepts that we unreservedly believe and teach. It is our desire to maintain this position and to do so in fairness to each family. In honoring this desire, there shall be no attempt made by parents, students, administrators, teachers or staff to promote or disparage any doctrinal or denominational beliefs, practices, or positions regarding issues upon which the school itself has assumed no official stance. We desire to remain united in the salvation and love of Christ, avoiding the dissension that may be caused by denominational distinctions.

Our first and foremost goal at PCCS is to glorify and honor God in all that we do. 1 Cor. 10:31, 1 Peter 4:11. In this regard, we will strive consistently to (a) acknowledge, both in word and deed, the scriptures as our highest rule and final authority for faith and practice in all matters, and (b) submit to the scriptures in all aspects of school operation in general and the academic program in particular.
