We are blessed that our son has the opportunity to attend Plumstead Christian School. We chose to enroll him at PCS his kindergarten year; he's in high school now, and we've never regretted our decision to continue his education at PCS. Some people assume that a small Christian school can't offer exceptional academics, which is truly a myth. PCS continues to rank among the highest schools in test scores, and although not a large school, offers a myriad of choices in academic courses and electives, including honors and A.P. classes. Students also have numerous options to be involved in competitive athletics and outstanding fine arts programs. Smaller class sizes are beneficial for teacher-student communication; lower student-to-teacher ratios encourage more classroom discussions and more one-on-one questions being able to be answered. The teachers and staff are committed to excellence, teaching with a Biblical worldview, and being Godly role models for students, which means so much when we're entrusting our son to their care for seven hours each day. Our son is definitely learning tools he needs to excel academically and morally, not only in college, but also in life itself.

My husband and I have been more than blessed by Plumstead Christian School's excellence in partnering with us to raise our 4 kids in a godly environment with high academics. The Christ centeredness combined with high academics makes PCS the logical choice in Bucks County, Montgomery County, even into Lehigh County. Our first graduated in 2013 and has completed one year of college. He chose a Christian college where he has thrived spiritually and was very prepared for high academics at his honors college, Wheaton College. Plumstead helped him gain the confidence as a Christian to be ready to not only handle the academics but to be able to make responsible choices for himself morally. The teachers at Plumstead walk along with the students through their academics and as Christian mentors as the students grow in relationship with Christ and follow Him. We are going into our 13th year at Plumstead and love the school just as much now as we did when began this journey. We offer shadowing days. I encourage you to allow your student to come experience a day in the life of a Plumstead Christian School as you look for the best fit for them. You won't be disappointed!!

Plumstead Christian School has been a blessing for our family. Our kids are in the jr and sr high, and have attended since first grade. I so appreciate the loving christian environment they have been immersed in, and the strong academic curriculum they have learned from. SAT scores have been consistently higher than the national average, and 98% of graduates attend college. A great school!

PCS is great in three specific ways: 1) Teachers truly make a difference by engaging students and giving attention to each student 2) Your student will be ready to take on college as the work ethic is tough and much is expected of each student 3) Bad influences like smoking, drinking and drugs are highly minimized compared to other schools.

Plumstead is such a wonderful school. I am a former student, about to enter my junior year of college. I am so thankful for the relationships I built at Plumstead. The music program is spectacular, the sports teams are passionate and successful. If you are going to be a student there, you have a lot to look forward to. It is a unique and wonderful community that has been built there. If I have kids and if I am still in the area, I will certainly send them to Plumstead.

My school is Plumstead Christian School and it is the finest Christian school in the area. The board, administration and faculty continually work toward excellence in academics and toward building character centered around a Biblical world view. My own daughter attends PCS and I greatly appreciate the impact the school has had in her life. Christ centered teaching in core subjects, the arts and all enrichment classes has helped my daughter look beyond herself and is preparing her to excel in college, work and life in general. The school's focus on service toward family, friends, community and the world is exemplary. I am also always impressed by the number of Plumstead Christian School students who place in the top three in regional and state-wide competitions against much larger school districts (including public schools.) Standardized testing and AP exam results also speak volumes regarding the excellence of education provided at our school. I highly recommend PCS to anyone interested in the best education for their children.

Plumstead Christian School offers their students the opportunity to excel academically but also to grow spiritually. We have two children in the lower school but I have had the opportunity to meet many of the seniors that will be moving on in June. Everytime I interact with them, I think to myself, "I pray that my daughter and son are like that when they are seventeen." If these seniors are a good indicator of how the school is educating and shaping young people, then we keep our children here until they are ready for college.

Plumstead Christian School has been such a blessing to our family. I have two very different children. I have a son that is strong academically and a daughter that has learning disabilities. My daughter was diagnosed in Kindergarten. She has received extra help all through school and her confidence has grown every year. She is now academically strong, but still receives the help she needs. The teachers show godly love to both my kids - even when they may need discipline or correction. My son is gifted is music and PCS has identified his strengths and celebrated them. He has been given the opportunity to grow musically and for that we are so grateful. My daughter loves sports and she gets multiple opportunities to try new sports and improve each season. She also loves drama and has been involved in two plays so far. Since PCS is small, my kids are not lost in the crowd. Each teacher knows them and strives to have them succeed. We recommend PCS to any family that wants a Christian school.

Plumstead is wonderful! They really merge the highest level of priority on academics with the highest level of priority on teaching our children to live Christ centered lives. Every subject is taught from a Christian perspective: science- God's creation, history- the truth about our founding fathers, etc. When you consider how many hours a day your children spend in school for 12 years, the school you send them to is one of the most important choices you make for them.

We have 5 children currently enrolled at Plumstead Christian in elementary, middle school and highschool. I love this school. This is not an institution but a family. It is a small school which means small class sizes which also means that the teachers and principals know each family pretty intimately. I love the culture here. I love that the teenagers pray for each other with no prompting. I love that problems are solved through a Christian lens and that everybody is held to the standards of what is expected of a Christian. I love that the teachers pray with my children or with me before parent-teacher meetings. I love that the parents think like I do and share the same core values and desires for their children as I do. I love that my kids know the bible and how to defend their faith and swim against negative tides in the culture. And it's not an either/or sitiuation. We are not sacrificing academics for faith. The kids coming out of here get amazing grades, high SAT scores and are known to earn academic scholarships. We are determined to make the sacrifices it takes to send all 5 kids through the school. (PCS has helped us do that with financial aid as well.)

As a parent I am ecstatic that in this day and age of specialization for our kids (e.g. play one sport year round, or just one activity per season) my kids can do so much at PCS. They can play a sport, sing in the choir, perform in a play, play in the band, sing on the chapel team, go on a school mission trip, excel in our arts program. They have so many opportunities to figure out how they've been gifted by God. The public school kids are limited to one or maybe two activities all year; and the competition is intense. As a teacher, I get to talk about Jesus in all that I do. Because we are smaller than public schools I know most of the parents of my students very well. We are on the same page and it truly is a team atmosphere. The academics are very strong and the teachers know my kids very, very well.

Plumstead Christian School has been a true blessing to our family. We currently have four children enrolled at the elementary, middle school and high school levels. The core Christian principles, strong academics and various extracurriculars have helped each of my children become well-rounded individuals. The culture of the school encourages each student to reach their highest potential while learning and growing into Godly young men and women.

We love PCS. We have 2 boys, age 16 and 12 that are in their 2nd year at PCS. I cannot say what a huge difference PCS has made in the lives of our children. Everything about PCS is a dream come true. We have been in other Christian schools, charter schools, and public schools. There is no comparison between PCS and other schools we have attended both private and public. The administration and faculty live what they preach and truly love the students, while holding them accountable personally and academically. The curriculum is challenging and the environment loving. There is nothing more we could ask for in a learning environment for my boys. They have flourished both personally and academically. We are truly blessed to have the opportunity to attend such a Christ centered school.

This school is fantastic academically. It's a very friendly and inviting environment for kids and families. Academics are more challenging in a smaller environment with ability to create specific plans for gifted or support services.
