School Notes

  • The heartbeat of our mission, at Plumstead Christian School (PCS), is to prepare students for a lifetime of service to the Lord. This means the education that we provide at PCS goes beyond the classroom. Students grow in knowledge, in faith, and in virtue.
  • We offer preschool programs for three-year-olds, four-year-olds, and pre-kindergarteners. Students in our preschool programs use multi-sensory materials and age-appropriate activities to help them develop physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually. 
  • The Upper School at PCS offers a college preparatory curriculum, art, drama and music, technology and athletics.
  • We partner with dedicated and involved parents to provide an environment where students develop attributes and skills needed to make a positive impact in their homes, the community and the world.

As a graduate of PCS in the class of 1996 I had a fantastic experience and was prepared very well for college and beyond. Now as a parent of four kids at PCS my wife and I couldn't be more pleased with our decision to invest in a PCS education. Academics are top-notch, the teachers pour theirs lives into the kids, our faith values are reinforced during the school day, not undermined, the friendships our kids are making are solid and healthy, the facilities are safe, and the smaller size of the school makes a huge impact in the attention each child receives. We are very satisfied and would highly recommend PCS!!!

When deciding where to send our children to school 5 years ago, we initially looked into PCS because numerous youth from our church graduated from there all of whom impressed us. Our oldest started attending preschool at PCS in 2014. We're so thankful our children are taught from a biblical worldview, as well as in an academic setting where the godly character is fostered. The attention students receive in the classroom is formative, and we're thankful the teachers seek to partner with us as parents. We have grown to love the community of PCS -- both the faculty and families over the years.

We are very pleased with our experience with Plumstead Christian School. The administration, teachers, and support staff have garnered our trust through close communication, excellent academics, and a clear passion to teach our children not just in knowledge, but in skill. Their commitment to Christian education remains at the forefront without sacrificing any attention to rigorous and effective teaching. The vision of the school's founders has stood the test of time by making each family relationship a personal one. Art and music as well as STEM are all strong focuses for the development of each child.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE PCS!!! We currently have 3 students at Plum stead...2 in Middle School & 1 in the Lower School. First & foremost Plum stead is a solid Christian school that weaves Jesus into every aspect of the day whether it's classes, sports, extra curricular, conversations & even down to what you see hanging on the walls in the hallways. The teachers, administration & staff go above & beyond to genuinely know & love your kids as well as the entire family. Our kids are not just a name or number...these teachers truly get to know them. Plum stead is a very welcoming community environment that provides a fantastic education while giving the kids numerous opportunities. Our family has been truly blessed by PCS & we are thrilled to have them there

Our family has been at Plumstead Christian school for the past five years. We appreciate the school's strong academics which are taught from a Biblical worldview by qualified Christian teachers. In addition to core subjects, our children have the benefit of music, art, STEM, Latin, technology, PE, and library classes. Our children have enjoyed participating in after school clubs that are offered monthly at the Lower School. Both of our children have loved being at PCS, and it has been a joy to watch them grow spiritually, socially, and academically over the past five years. We are thankful for the caring teachers and the opportunity to partner with the school as we raise our children.

Three of my students graduated from Plumstead Christian School (PCS) and went on to thrive in their respective colleges. All three graduated from college summa cum laude, and we attribute their success in college to the foundation in strong academics that was laid at PCS. While at PCS our children were heavily invested in the visual and performing arts - a clear strength of the school. They made lasting friendships with peers and faculty, and they grew in their faith because these same peers and faculty encouraged such growth. We are so glad we made the investment in our children to have them go through Plumstead Christian School!

Looking for an alternative to public school, PCS was the first school on our list after talking to a family from church whose son had graduated and they highly recommended it. One meeting with Admissions and we never looked back! Both of my children have thrived at the school with strong academics, robust sports programs, and fine arts opportunities. Their faith has grown exponentially from the excellent Bible teachers, the chapel speakers they've heard and their varied experiences with small groups, sports and service projects. The teachers are engaged with the students, the standards are high, and the environment is positive. My kids have made awesome friends, and the families of students are welcoming and caring. We love PCS!

We are blessed that our son has the opportunity to attend Plumstead Christian School. We chose to enroll him at PCS his kindergarten year; he's in high school now, and we''ve never regretted our decision to continue his education at PCS. Some people assume that a small Christian school can't offer exceptional academics, which is truly a myth. PCS continues to rank among the highest schools in test scores, and although not a large school, offers a myriad of choices in academic courses and electives, including honors and A.P. classes. Students also have numerous options to be involved in competitive athletics and outstanding fine arts programs. Smaller class sizes are beneficial for teacher-student communication; lower student-to-teacher ratios encourage more classroom discussions and more one-on-one questions being able to be answered. The teachers and staff are committed to excellence, teaching with a Biblical worldview, and being Godly role models for students, which means so much when we''re entrusting our son to their care for seven hours each day. We''re convinced that our son is learning tools he needs to excel academically and morally, not only in college, but also in life itself. We''re thankful to have a school that partners with us as we rear our son for God's glory!

We have been more than blessed by Plumstead Christian School's excellence in partnering with us to raise our 4 kids in a godly environment with high academics. The Christ centeredness combined with high academics makes PCS the logical choice in Bucks County, Montgomery County, even into Lehigh County. Our first child graduated in 2013 and has completed one year of college. He chose a Christian college where he has thrived spiritually and was very prepared for high academics in college. Plumstead helped him gain the confidence of Christ to be ready to not only handle the academics but to be able to make responsible choices for himself morally. The teachers at Plumstead walk along with the students through their academics and as Christian mentors as the students grow in relationship with Christ and follow Him. We are going into our 13th year at Plumstead and love the school just as much now as we did when we began this journey. Our three daughters have thrived as well, being very active in athletics and challenged academically. They know they are loved at Plumstead and are very thankful to have had the opportunity to go to Christian school.

Academic programs prepared me well for college (As a computer science major). I was part of a group of singers who won a competition in Hershey, PA. The sports programs not only got me in shape, but developed in me confidence and perseverance.

Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
