Pioneer Christian School is an independent, inter-denominational, Christian-Classical school for students in grades K-12.
Using the Principle Approach, we teach our students how to be life long learners within a biblical worldview.
While under the direct guidance of Sword and Shield Ministries, the backbone of PCS is that the faculty and staff consist of the students' parents and grandparents.
This gives parents and grandparents the opportunity to directly participate in the education of their children.
Central to the PCS philosophy is the belief that spiritual and moral education are even more important than academic education.
Thus, spiritual and moral teaching is woven into all subject matters.
By integrating biblical Christianity with all areas of academia, PCS strives to teach students that Jesus Christ cannot be separated from any part of life.
