A VISION FOR OUR SECOND CENTURY
In January 2022 the PCS Board of Directors took a step of faith and voted to move forward with a plan to significantly improve our facilities. Our current campus was built in the 1970s as a K-8 school and no longer has sufficient space for our K-12 needs. Starting in fall 2022 we will begin construction of a brand new two-story high school building (at right in the rendering above) and music suite (to the left of the existing chapel in the rendering above). Both of them will be attached to our current buildings. The high school building will include 15 classrooms (including a biology lab and an art room), a media center/library, and several offices.
We will also be making upgrades to our current buildings, constructing a girls’ softball field and retrofitting the boys’ baseball field on our new property at Springdale (4 miles from our main campus). These fields will be the first outdoor athletic facilities that PCS has owned in our 98 year history!
We are calling this our Second Century Campaign, as it should all be completed for the 2023-24 school year – our 100th year by the grace of God! These new facilities will allow us to offer our academically strong, Christ-centered education to a larger number of students for generations to come. Access the campaign booklet HERE.
The amazing part of this campaign is that the Lord has already provided almost 80% of the funding needed to complete these projects! Our Board of Directors has mandated that all capital improvements must be paid for entirely by donations so that we accrue no additional debt. In order to complete these projects debt-free, we have launched the Open Phase of our Second Century Capital Campaign. We need YOUR help to get across the finish-line!
