I have been so pleased with what PCCP has had to offer this year. The staff is truly dedicated including Dr. Andujo. He is very hands-on and cares about all the students. I love that the students are challenged. Education is top-notch. The environment is very welcoming which I also really like. My son loves this school. Coming from never wanting to go to school to wanting to go to school every day has made all the difference in the world to us.
Pacific coast is such a unique & special school. The staff is so accommodating and helpfulFor every need. The best part is how much one on one the students get with their teachers. I love how involved the teachers are with the parents as well . It`s amazing that all their work is done on chrome books. I love how mr Andujo is so hands on with the curriculum and when it comes toShowing students right from wrong. The schoolIs very advanced and worth every penny when I see how much more educated my children are by the day. Thank you pacific coast Christian prep for all that you do for our children. Mrs. Quintanilla
We've been surprised and delighted with everything PCCP has to offer! Before PCCP, we had our children enrolled at another private Christian school in the area, and we've seen the amazing firsthand results of what superior faculty leadership, unparalleled academics and values-based character development can do in the lives of young children. We LOVE PCCP!
PCCPrep puts Christ first, teaches from a Biblical worldview, provides exceptional academics, and employs an All-Star team of faculty members who truly care about the students! My kids LOVE PCCPrep and look forward to going to school every day. It's the best school in town! I would highly recommend stopping by to check out the school and meet the Admin team. You will be blessed.
Awesome school. You can tell excellence from seeing the high academic level being taught in the 15 student max classrooms, the Bible-based values imparted in the way the staff and teachers not only teach but treat students, parents, and everybody. The Christ-like leadership development modeled for the kids is priceless. Everything from teachers and staff to curriculum just resembles excellence in every way. You can feel the love and care from the teachers for the kids. Both my kids love to attend school. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for great academics and great protected environment and Christian faith values.
We are very blessed to have our daughter attending PCCP. This is her 1st year at a private school and it has been one of the best decision we made. They strive for excellence in everything they do. Thank you Dr. Andujo and Staff!
Our son and daughter attend PCCP and we as a family are happy to be part of this new school. We've had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Andujo for many years now. His level of commitment, his involvement with each and every student, his support for teachers and staff, his leadership, and above all his genuine concern for our children gives us as parents peace of mind. We trust our children are receiving the best education possible. They are challenged daily and receive a quality Christian education. Our children participate in sports, worship, audio/visual, and chess club. Tutoring is available and the teachers are responsive to any and all concerns. Class sizes are small and after school care is available. PCCP recently held Grandparents Day which we loved and there are more activities planned for the future.We feel Christian education is an investment in our children's' future. Our children are surrounded by like-minded students and staff. The quality of service you get exceeds all expectations. You simply cannot find this type of dedication anywhere else. Give PCCP a try, your children are worth it!
This school is fairly new and reasonably priced. The staff has been a true blessing towards my family and I. They genuinely care about my childs success and well being. I highly recommend this school.
Pacific Coast Christian Prep has been such a blessing to our family. We currently have one of three kids that attend PCCP and she has said that the environment has helped her be more attentive in class and the teachers are very intentional about preparing students for their future. I see how our daughter has improved scholastically and socially. PCCP has great a fabulous drama class with opportunity to take part in the Thespian society that has been offered to middle school class and high school. High school students could also study abroad if they decide to. There are many opportunities at PCCP, Dr. Andujo and Ms. Mellado are very welcoming and the staff is friendly, professional and care for all the students and their education.
My children are more than happy in their new school, they love their teachers, they love going to school, we are very blessed to be part of PCCP.
My 7-year-old son attends PCCP, we are loving the school and made the right choice for my son. Dr. Andujo and his wonderful staff and teachers made the new school transition seamlessly. As a parent, you check all the boxes and make sure the school is above average on Academics, Christian faith, quality of teachers etc, but the real evidence of how great PCCP is, that my son is happy and excited to go to school every day. For me, I can rest assure we made the right decision to be a part of this school. I appreciate how the leadership here treats my son like their own and understands his needs.
We are so happy and blessed that our children (a kindergartener, 1st grader and a 4th grader) attend PCCPrep under the leadership of Dr. Richard Andujo. From both academic and spiritual standpoints, the growth that we have observed in all of our children has been incredible. The teachers are wonderful and are such a blessing. They truly care about the children and it shows. This is a fantastic Christian school in which your child/children will fell excited to go everyday.
I am very pleased with the caliber of instruction my son is receiving at PCCPrep. The teachers and staff are genuinely caring and supportive. The leadership is second to none and their primary focus is to develop students with a Christ centered worldview, along with superior academics, sports and community involvement. As a parent, I am confident that PCCPrep will produce our future leaders. Leaders with ethics and a sound moral compass to be a light of hope that this country desperately needs.
As a parent of two PCCPrep students, our family is overjoyed with the new PCCPrep school! The teachers are well-educated with an average of 15 years of experience, teach from a Biblical Worldview, and genuinely care for our students and their spiritual growth. You could not ask for a better administrative team! They are the best Christian educators you will find in San Diego, and we are blessed to have them serving our students through examples of Christian leadership and servant's hearts! My kids LOVE this school. This is their third school in three years, and they do not want to be anywhere else! The school offers CIF sports, opportunities for dual enrollment for several subjects, drama, technology, leadership training (recent trip to Paris, France), missions trips (in planning stages), yearbook, worship, chapels, chess club and more on a beautiful campus with developing sports fields next to the school. I would definitely say...come check out the school! You will NOT be disappointed!
I am so blessed to be a part of the Pacific Coast Christian Prep family! This school is a dream come true for someone like me who grew up in the South Bay. This school is on its way to becoming THE elite private Christian college prep school in all of San Diego County. The Panthers have already started off year one competing in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) San Diego Section, fielding over 16 CIF teams in diverse sports including basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling. They will likely have some of the top ACT and SAT scores in the county as well.
I am very impressed with the school on how they combine education and a safe, enriching environment. My son`s attitude towards school has changed in a positive way. He is more focused and want to learn which wasn`t the case in our prior school. They got the best of the best when it comes to teachers and it makes my job as a parent easier. I also like how they incorporated learning the Bible as part of the kids education.
PCCP is been a blessing for our kids and for us, enviroment enriched with love and respect to God, teamwork that has a heart for our children, we highly recommend it.
As a parent of two high school students, I could not be more pleased with the academic excellence, athletic training, and the biblical worldview that the teachers have provided for my children. They will be college ready. The administration cares for my children, encourages them to strive for academic success, while fanning the flame of their Christian faith. They have a spirit of redemptive discipline. I believe Pacific Coast Christian Prep will be the premier Christian school in the South Bay area. I am super excited that I enrolled my kids into PCCPrep.
I love being a Panther! This is an amazing environment where biblical worldview discipleship is more than just words on the website. The faculty is committed to training up world changers for Christ, and this is seen from the curriculum they choose, to the training their teachers receive, to the service and missions projects the students attend. My kids (high schoolers) enjoy their classes, their teachers, and the opportunities that are available. The Drama department boasts several performances each year, as well as an International Thespian Society. My kids are also able to participate in the worship team, as well, which is such a blessing. And, of course, the athletics are fantastic, with students given individualized attention, not to mention that good sportsmanship is taught in tandem with each sport. The class sizes are small, and the teachers genuinely care about each student. Courses are academically rigorous - mostly Honors and AP - but after-school tutoring is available daily for students who need extra help. This is a wonderful school!

With so much uncertainty in the world today and a pandemic further confounding our lives, it's reasonable for parents to want to protect their children whenever and wherever possible? But overprotecting or bubble-wrapping? Well, that's another matter.

You want your child to receive plenty of individual attention. That's one of the reasons most parents send their children to private school.
