Peace With Christ Christian School

  • Peace With Christ Christian School is located in Aurora, Colorado, a southeastern suburb of Denver.
  • It is one of nearly 3000 Lutheran pre-schools, elementary, and high schools in the United States.
  • The idea developed quickly and our school opened its doors in August, 1994.
  • PWCCS began with an enrollment of 60 students in kindergarten through 8th grade.
  • There were four full-time teachers and a full-time teaching principal.
  • Many parent volunteers filled in the gaps. Classrooms were combined into K, 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8.
  • The school shared the remodeled lower level of Peace With Christ Lutheran Church with its previously established Early Learning Center.
  • Recently, we have introduced Computer Classes to our curriculum, greatly enhanced our playground with new equipment and had the grand opening of our school library.
  • We now offer a school band program, several choruses, a Student Council and advanced math classes.

School Reviews

As the mother of a 1st grade boy who's finishing his first year at PWCCS, I''ve got to say that I am so pleased and completely impressed by this school. The staff at PWCCS are caring and attentive with students and parents. The academic and spiritual curriculum are well balanced and thorough. And I love how organized everything is. PWCCS is also an incredibly active school, with school-wide events throughout the year. I love the small class size, the school's active interest in using the advances of technology to aid in teaching and I love the open lines of communication we parents have with everyone at the school -- from the principal, to the teachers, to other parents as well. And one more very important reason I love this school -- my son is thriving there. We are looking forward to next year.
