The teachers and staff of Prince Avenue Christian School work together to do what is best for my child's learning needs. They are true partners in not only her education but also her wellbeing as a growing teenager. The Fine Arts department is instrumental in her life. Their support is a big part of building her God-given talents and helping her to gain strength in areas she finds challenging.

We have one child who is a Senior in High School and started Prince Avenue Christian School as a seventh grader. The faculty, staff, and administration strive for excellence in all they do. They want your student to succeed and do everything possible to make that a reality. Our student is involved heavily in the arts and also participates in athletics. The Fine Arts Department has given numerous opportunities for our student to grow in his personal skills as well as professionally. The people in this program are excellent at what they do.Prince is challenging academically and yet does all it can to create a successful environment for all of its students. It is an excellent choice if you are considering it as a place of education for your child.

We've had a fantastic experience at Prince Avenue Christian School. Our children have loved each of their teachers - we haven't had a bad experience yet. PACS does a great job of blending academics with spiritual formation. This is particularly important for our family, especially in the secularized society our children are growing up in today. Laying strong foundations for their faith at an early age while also providing a quality education is the reason we chose Prince, and we have not been disappointed. I couldn't give a stronger recommendation for Prince Avenue Christian School.

We are new to Prince this year with a Senior and a Freshman in high school. Our family can not say enough positive things about Prince. Everyone is warm and inviting. Both of my kids have made fast friends with some of the sweetest kids. We also feel they both are being academically challenged to prepare them for their future college career and spiritually for the crazy world we are living in. Prince has opportunities for all kids to be involved in, no matter your talents or gifts. My kids have already been involved in the Fall theater production and plan on playing Spring sports. We are blessed to be a part of the Prince family!!

We have been overwhelmed by the warm, friendly atmosphere and professionalism of staff, administration, and the whole Prince Avenue Christian School family! Even though my daughter is brand new this year, in 10th grade, she instantly found kind, like-minded friends, and says she feels like she has been at Prince her whole life. The school guidance counselor spent so much time helping her choose the best courses, balanced with her extracurricular interests and future college plans. As a mom of two college students, I can say for certain that the academics at Prince are varied, rigorous, and excellent preparation for college. The teachers are experts in their fields and genuinely care for their students. The leadership of the school is directed by a strong commitment to prayer, as well as a great deal of common sense. Parents are kept well informed and communication is thorough and timely. The fine arts opportunities are incredible and led by highly qualified, committed teachers, who go the extra mile consistently and put on top-notch concerts and productions! I am thrilled that my daughter can benefit from their expertise! One thing that especially drew us to Prince was that my daughter could take a class that combines drama and chorus during one class period, without having to choose between the two. Furthermore, Prince`s creative scheduling also allows her to take a Praise Band class. Therefore, on most days, she has 2 hours to exercise and practice her musical interests at school! The fine arts faculty, as well as the students and their families, are so welcoming; they are like a sweet family with one another, and they have embraced my daughter and our family as one of their own. My student is also an athlete, and she had the best experience playing volleyball at Prince this fall. We found the volleyball team to be an encouraging atmosphere for growing as a player, with excellent coaching, physical conditioning, great camaraderie, and spiritual leadership. The volleyball coach and fine arts director worked together to share my daughter's time so that she could participate in both sports and the arts!I could go on and on about the spiritual impact our family has already experienced at Prince. It`s evident from the classroom to the lunchroom, the volleyball court to the stage, the chapel to the school office-these teachers, staff, and administrators are living and modeling an authentic love of God and His Word. I am grateful my student can learn in this environment!

Having multiple children attend Prince Avenue Christian School for now 15 years, we continue to be more than satisfied with how the school has prepared each of our children academically, physically and spiritually. Families and students at Prince are able to choose and customize the academic track that best suits each student due to Prince offering college prep, advanced placement and dual enrollment college courses. The Learning Center is a resource that is available for students who may need extra support with tutoring and testing. It is wonderful for families who have children with different academic strengths and weaknesses to be able to attend the same school. For the size school that Prince is, it has such a wide variety of sports offerings in lower, middle and high school for each season. This has given our children the opportunity to try sports that they would never had participated in, if they were not available. Lastly, Prince has given our children a spiritual foundation, where they know who they are and whose they are. We so appreciate the teachers and faculty who have loved on and supported our children and family through the years!! We love Prince!!

We have been blessed to be a part of the Prince Family for many years and truly believe this is the best place for kids to receive a quality education from a Biblical worldview. Both of our kids are now in High School and have attended Prince since first grade. We strongly recommend this school!

PACS has been a great blessing to our family. We are grateful our children get to attend middle and high school here. The music department and praise band option is unique and surpasses our expectations!

Our family have been a part of PACS for 13 years. With its highly competitive academic program, athletics, and other extracurricular programs you will find a wonderful opportunity for your child to grow intellectually, personally, and in their Christian walk.

As a graduate of PACS, I met early admissions criteria at UGA, entering UGA as an academic sophomore, having completed multiple dual enrollment and AP classes offered. I am more than prepared for the demands of academics at UGA. The Christian perspective provided a firm foundation from which I continue to filter information.

Prince Avenue is not just a school. Prince Avenue is a family. A family where your children are nurtured, educated, discipled, and encouraged. Encouraged in academics to achieve all they can. Encouraged in sports to be the best they can be whether it's there first year or last year. A place where every opportunity is given to your to explore new things, I wouldn't have my daughter anywhere else.

As an alumnus and now a parent, my experience with Prince Avenue has been nothing but positive. The faculty and staff have servants’ hearts. They provide a Biblical worldview that influences my life to this day.

Prince Avenue Christian School has, and continues to be, a perfect fit for our three children. The faculty and staff within each phase of the school (elementary, middle and high) continuously go above and beyond to help students excel spiritually, academically, socially and athletically. The Fine Arts programs at Prince are top notch as well. We feel so blessed that our boys are a part of such a wonderful, God-centered school.

A school that truly cares about every single student and wants to make sure that every student is involved in some sort of way. Prince Avenue Christian School changed my life forever in many different aspects that included academics, athletics, and my spiritual life. I am truly indebted to Prince Avenue for the wonderful years that they gave me.

Prince Avenue is a fantastic family away from home for our kids. We love that the teachers are not only tremendous academically, but also have a true love for what they do and for the children they teach. We love that the families at the school have similar Christian values and desire for their children to be followers of Christ first and extraordinary students, friends, athletes, performers, etc. second. We could not ask for a better school to provide our kids with a well rounded Christian education than Prince.
