Portland Christian School has chosen to serve every student, with few exceptions, who applies for admittance whether in the inner city or the outskirts of Louisville. This is the choice PCS has made in determining the best way to serve those God sends to PCS. PCS is one of the few Christian schools that continues to serve the inner city while also expanding to serve the eastern Jefferson County community as well.
The families whose children are admitted to the school must agree with the school's Statement of Faith, vision, and core values. The education offered in a Christian school must be Christ-centered. Understanding the mission, vision, and the core values are important in keeping a Christ-centered environment. The nature and quality of its relationships with the families and the like-minded churches is evaluated, and information about its students, families, churches, and community is analyzed so as to better understand and serve its constituents more effectively.
Portland Christian’s student body is made up of students from all geographic areas and various Christian denominations. PCS does require faithful service and attendance in the family’s home church. Portland’s curriculum includes a Bible class or chapel service each day we are in session.
All required records and information are listed below and are available for download by clicking the 'pdf' link beside each available document.
We are very thankful for the opportunity to open the doors of Portland Christian School to new families each year. The following procedure has been established to aid in the acceptance of all new applicants in grades K –- 12.
General information will be given over the phone (502) 429-3727 and is available at www.portlandchristian.org. If Internet access is not available, an information packet can be mailed to the home upon request. This packet includes application information for one student. Please call the school to request additional application forms if Internet access is not available.
After the application and $75 application fee has been submitted, the Admissions Office will call and schedule a developmental screening. The screening is a one-on-one event involving the student and a teacher to aid in helping the child have a successful beginning in school. The screening can be completed in about an hour.
Within 3 – 5 days the Director of Admissions will call with the screening results and answer any questions.
After the application and $75 application fee has been submitted, the Admissions Office will call and schedule a test. Typically we schedule small groups of the same grade level. This will take about 2 ½ hours. We look forward to this time to introduce you to the school. Within 3 – 5 days the Director of Admissions will call with the test results. A student’s scores on the admissions test are not the sole factor considered for acceptance. The scores do help us to determine a successful placement for the child.
When test results and application information is complete, the Admissions Office will call and arrange for an interview with the student(s) and their parent(s).
After the Admissions Committee has evaluated the applicant’s file, parents will be notified promptly, in writing, of the Admission Committee’s decision. Please feel comfortable in calling, if you have questions along the way.
After confirmation of acceptance is received, please contact the business office at
(502) 429-3727 in order to confirm that financial arrangements have been completed. Seats are reserved, in order, upon successful completion of the admissions’ process, including financial arrangement approval. Arrangements must be made with the Business Office regarding the payment of tuition.
If you have any questions or concerns other than fees, they should be directed to the child’s principal.
It is important that you prayerfully consider the Statement of Faith. We are an extension of your home and desire that we be consistent in support of one another.
Portland Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of our educational policies, admissions procedures or other school-administered programs.
Since 1924, Portland Christian School has been committed to honoring our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Creator of all things, with a learning environment that is based on biblical principles and is intellectually stimulating. Our desire is to work cooperatively with the student's home and church, "so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work".
