  • Since our founding in 1914, PCS has been providing an academic education especially designed for talented young people pursuing goals in the performing arts, entertainment and competitive sports. PCS provides all of the necessary academic tools to ensure success in leading colleges, universities and conservatories, as well as throughout life, while enabling students to pursue their individual goals outside of school.
  • Our academic program ensures that our students can focus on both school and their outside interests by incorporating flexible academic schedules, guided study while away from school, and an understanding environment of accommodation and advance planning on the part of the faculty.
