The future is walking the hallways, sitting in class, sharing a moment, building relationships, praying with friends, competing with character, and – most importantly — honoring God in everything.
For over 60 years, Plumstead Christian School has been keenly aware that the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. PCS – through God’s grace –has been faithful to provide a caring community where students are educated to think Biblically, serve effectively, and lead Christ-centered lives through academic excellence and spiritual growth.
PCS’ success is directly tied to our students – and we have seen hundreds of young lives changed by our academic program and conviction to provide a spiritual environment for learning. But a barometer of our ability to serve our students comes from parents and alumni – those who have seen and experienced the impact Plumstead Christian School is having for the course of Christ.
“…Being able to go to Plumstead is a great blessing. Whether you think so or not, underclassmen, you are blessed to be here. You have teachers who genuinely care and will get to know you on a personal level. You have sports teams who will show you the ropes and give you a chance. You’ve got excellent drama and music programs. As students here, all this is available to you; as a student on his way out, I look back and wish I had taken advantage of it more…”
“… I would like to thank all of you, from teachers to friends and family, for being in attendance this morning. You have all had a profound impact on the development of the students that will be graduating today, and I feel it is safe to say that I speak on behalf of the whole graduating class of 2012 in thanking you for all your efforts that you have invested in us to this day. …”
Being in a secular university environment has enabled me to appreciate why Plumstead Christian School is so special and I want to extend my thanks. The art curriculum has allowed me to participate in (often worldly) creative discussions with a godly mindset. PCS has trained me to be discerning in all areas of school and life. I am equipped with the tools necessary to succeed both academically and spiritually. I cannot overstate just how essential the Bible curriculum at PCS has been in even just my first few days of orientation – especially my senior year classes. It’s amazing how easy it is to get into a discussion about faith at Arcadia without even trying. I assumed most would be quiet on the subject, trying not to offend, but the minute I say I went to a Christian high school, everyone shares their family’s religious background, presents their own views, and asks questions. People are searching and unfulfilled and curious in ways I never would have anticipated. The idea of “relative truth” seems to be very popular. I’m so thankful that I had the opportunity at PCS to explore their questions in a godly environment, find Biblical answers, and learn how to articulate those answers in a non-aggressive manner. Because of your courses and instruction I have deliberate, truthful answers to tricky, murky questions. Thank you for your excellent preparation!
