Polk Christian Preparatory School is a highly motivating place to be. This school is very well equipped with a wonderful staff who is dedicated and passionate about serving God and serving others. They work hard daily to make sure that the children sharpen their learning skills and that they focus positively on growing academically. My grandkids love to be there and they have grown so much. They are always involved in science projects, trips, and sports and they make sure to finish their work on time. They are constantly coming out in pictures showing their hard work and being proud of their achievements and what their school is doing. They are involved in many things. There are so many things to look forward to because Polk is always doing something new. PCPS also offers diverse sporting activities. Children do so well when they have a chance to show their potential in the sporting arena also. This school is highly recommended for students to grow mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This school positively serves the community. It is the place to be!!

The school aims to provide a faith-based environment where students can grow both intellectually and spiritually. The curriculum includes teachings about the Bible, prayer, and Christian ethics, which can help students build a strong moral foundation. They also have highly dedicated and caring teachers who are committed to helping their students succeed. I couldn't be more satisfied with the growth of my nephews at this school.

We love Polk Christian Preparatory School. There are 10 schools in Central Florida, and we are blessed to have a Lakeland location. My kids are more active now due to many outdoor activities, throughout the school day. Sports are offered after school at a very affordable rate. There is a friendly community and loving staff. My 16 yr old son had lost interest in school, and after 1 week, he is excited about coming to school now. Wow, that is saying a lot when my son is still attending and plays football as well.
