Best Christian School for Us!

Parenting is the greatest blessing and the greatest journey. It is also the greatest responsibility.

The choices we’re asked to make on behalf of our children can be overwhelming, especially selecting the best school.

Like most parents, we diligently toured all the best local schools in search of finding the right fit. Despite all the great choices to select from, Pasadena Christian School (PCS) always remained top of mind not just because of the outstanding academic programs offered, but because of the way they made us feel. Genuinely welcome and secure are a couple terms that come to mind.

Once “acceptance letter season” arrived, PCS was the first to respond with an invitation to attend the preschool. It’s been three years since we officially joined the PCS family and we couldn’t be happier.

Our daughter continues to grow and thrive in this special nurturing and educational environment which compliments and supports our faith; while providing the educational tools necessary to succeed beyond the sandbox.

We continue to be impressed with how much our little student continues learn. From reading independently to developing public speaking skills, to navigating computer web sites and developing critical thinking/conflict resolution skills; the growth has been significant.

Our teachers are skilled at using unconventional means to teach which makes it fun for the kids. There are lessons to be learned in the garden, on stage and even from repurposed card board boxes. This approach to teaching has worked for our daughter. Sometimes she uses these “tools” to teach us!

We also appreciate that our daughter is not just a number on the student roster, but a valued member of their “family.” Many of the teachers know her by name, even our principles who are always out working car line… rain or shine!

Every morning, our daughter is greeted with a smile and affection. Every morning reminds us of their promise to partner with us, and help her fulfill her unique plan and purpose.

This is why we come back every morning… because the teachers who have become her second family are not going to let her down. We have definitely chosen wisely!

PCS has been truly a blessing!

Nine years has gone by so fast. We started at Pasadena Christian School with a little girl and finished with a Beautiful young woman! The faculty and staff at PCS had a big part in that! Our time at PCS has been truly blessed.

Simply the best!

As parents of children with different talents, our family searched for a school that not only reinforced the Christian morals and values that we instilled but offered a challenging and differentiated academic environment. After educating our family at Pasadena Christian School for more than twelve years, we discovered that our expectations were not only met but exceeded! Pasadena Christian School offers a reasonably priced Christ-centered program with high academic standards that encouraged our children to excel in music, art, public speaking, athletics, technology and foreign language. Following our children s middle school graduations, they were equipped to attend the best college preparatory high schools in our area.

Glad to be at PCS

PCS has provided a higher quality education than our local public K-8 school would have been able to offer, plus specific teachers for art, music (instrumental and choral), PE, computer, library, public speaking, Spanish, student support (emerging needs), etc. I like that our Christian values at home are being reinforced by the teachers and vast majority of our kids' classmates. So far, our kids have loved (not liked, LOVED) every one of their teachers through the years. Our experience has been that the teachers have gone out of their ways to work with our childrens' struggles and our family's circumstances. Periodic surveys of families guide decisions, so the administration's making a priority of listening to parents and making adjustments. Online access to grades, homework & communications makes it easier to keep on top of what's going on at school. Plenty of field trips & special fun days keep our kids excited about showing up at school. Nice variety of melanin, culture, $, interests, talents, etc. among the student body. I believe that PCS has been a great match for our kids.
