Portland Christian School is founded upon the fact that the “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” (Proverbs 1:7, NIV) It is dedicated to presenting every subject in the light of the reality of God and of the revelation of Himself to man through the Word of God, the Bible, and to the specific teachings of the Bible. The staff is composed of Christians who are dedicated to serving God and youth.
Portland Christian School was first accredited by the Kentucky Board of Education in 1931 and has maintained that status to the present. The school is presently accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), which is recognized by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and by AdvancEd, which is the world’s largest education community.
