At Prince of Peace Christian School (children ages 6 weeks through 12th grade), the comprehensive goal for every child and student is encapsulated in the words, "BELONG, GROW, and BECOME." With an enrollment of over 800, students BELONG to a nuturing  enviroment where teachers support, engage and challenge each student.  Students GROW through a strong curriculum pursuing academic and extracurricular excellence in an enviroment of Christian principles.  Students BECOME successful not only academically but spiritually through God's word.  A Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, Prince of Peace Christian School encompasses a 37-acre campus with more than 150,000 square feet, including the Early Learning Center, Lower School, Middle School, High School, 12 acres of sports fields, gated playgrounds, and gymnasiums. Completed in 2010 was the 1.6 million - Phase 1 Eagle Stadium Complex featuring a football field, grandstand, eight-lane track and four tennis courts.
In 2009  the 6.5 million Fine Arts building was dedicated featuring a 500-seat theater, band and choir halls, individual practice rooms and art studio.  Beyond the academic and social successes, something more fundamental exists at Prince of Peace: a connection that reaches beyond the classroom.  It's the life long relationships that develop with families, teachers and friends as students grow in God's word and become Christian leaders.
