Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Portland Christian School approaches the education of students holistically. We strive to help develop students academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Through junior high to senior high, small class sizes permit students to progress at their own pace. Specialized courses offered include Latin, engineering, band, art, Bible and outdoor school (junior high). College planning begins early with advising and counseling for academic and social support.
