We Believe Strong Academics is Important in Spiritual Formation.
High quality education is an integral part of PCS.
The spiritual growth of our students has always been the main goal of our faculty and staff. As a Christian school we believe that God’s commands to do everything we do with all our might (Ecclesiastes 9:10) and “in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Colossians 3:17) means that we are called to help our students achieve excellence in academics as an integral part of their spiritual growth. With that in mind, our administration works with our faculty to assure that every student receives a high quality education, thus preparing them to enter the world as Christians who have the educational background to pursue God’s plan for their lives. Each year between ninety and one-hundred percent of our high school seniors enter higher education of some type after graduation.
Over the last ten years our seniors have averaged 21.2 on the ACT, with our top 10% averaging 29.5 last year. Our seniors also score well on standardized testing. The high school hosts a chapter of the National Honor Society.
Teaching our students to become leaders in education, missions, ministry, and in their God-given vocation is a task that the PCS faculty accepts freely as their service to the Lord.
Christ is the center of our educational foundation.
From day one, the elementary and middle school students are given a Christ -based educational foundation. The classroom ratio is one that allows a caring and personal relationship with every student. Class projects, programs, and trips are an integral part of the overall education which is partnered with the teachings of Christ in an atmosphere that enhances the educational experience.
Students can discover their interests in the many activities we offer.
Portland Christian offers many activities and courses that enhance the education process. PCS is a member of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association and offers athletic opportunities for students from 3rd grade to 12th. Fine arts offerings range from elementary chorus and drama productions to high school drama teams and a performing choir. These offerings give our students diversified experiences so they can explore the many plans God may have for them.
