What Makes Us Different?


Student Focused, Christ-centered Curriculum
At PPCS your child’s education is not dictated by a “one size fits all” curriculum, or by test-driven mandates. Instead we use a variety of proven publishers and programs (both Christian and secular) to provide the most relevant and effective academic material at each grade level. Our entire curriculum is presented through a Biblical worldview by our Christian staff in a way that challenges and enables students to think critically and develop important skills while encountering the incredible God who created and sustains everything.
 
Biblically Based, Meaningful Character Formation
At PPCS we go beyond efforts to develop “good people” with basic character education. We teach, model, and develop the timeless values and truths established in the Bible and lived out by Jesus Christ that impact the very hearts of our students. We do so through mentoring, classroom instruction, regular chapel experiences, small groups, service activities, and accountability actions.  Through our partnering with parents, local churches, and the community, spiritual character development is not just a program but a way of life for our staff and students.
 
Whole Person, Whole Education
At PPCS education is not a singular objective or a fast track to the next phase in life. We strongly believe that education is more than just academics because it involves the whole person – heart, soul, body, and mind. That is why we provide our students as many opportunities as possible to develop their social, physical, and emotional skills in addition to academics. Through programs in the fine arts, athletics, clubs, and many other extracurricular activities, students can develop their God-given abilities, learn teamwork, and enjoy new experiences to help build their whole person.
