We have a deep history with Pikes Peak Christian School. My husband was one of the first classes to start at PPCS and continued to grow with the school all the way through 8th grade. That was as far as they offered back then. When we had our kids he wanted them to attend here and we loved it so much we never left! I have one in elementary and two in middle school. We love the small classes and the teachers have a heart for educating our children both academically and spiritually. We are a small community of believers that value teaching our children God's word and how it can be applicable in today's culture. The curriculum is challenging and the small class sizes allow for more teacher/student interaction. My kids love their teachers and all talk about how they will one day graduate from Pikes Peak Christian School.

We found PPCS when my youngest daughter was in 4th grade. We transferred her into the school in December of that year and have not questioned that decision at all. She has succeeded in academics and athletics. She has served on the student council, participated in Drama, and has been able to take all kinds of electives like art, sewing, weights, musical theatre, and creative writing. She is able to develop close relationships with her teachers and they know her as a person. Our other daughter transferred in as a freshman in high school. She was able to succeed with a small class and was able to realize her talents and explore future opportunities. I feel the high school prepared her to succeed in her future studies, but more importantly, the staff, teachers, and admin helped shape who she is and who she wants to be.

We're so thankful for PPCS! My daughter is graduating from there this year and she has been at PPCS since we moved here when she was in 8th grade. She has excelled in academics, including honors and AP classes and was a member of the National Honor Society. She was more than prepared to apply to any college she wanted. She was also able to excel in her gift of art and had many opportunities to share her artistic talent with others inside and outside the school. She lettered in every sport and they even won Regionals in Volleyball twice! My favorite parts of PPCS are the bible classes/daily chapel and the small class sizes. The teachers obviously care about the students and are well educated in their field of expertise. They offer many fields trips and 2 big trips in high school to Costa Rica and Washington DC. We had planned on homeschooling my son for high school, but he wants to go to PPCS instead!
