Student Life at PCS
Payson Christian School is so much more than your average public school with an additional Christian education. We recognize that each student learns differently. Therefore, although we are established to hold 430 students at our school in Payson, AZ, we cap our maximum enrollment at 230 students. This way we can ensure that each student gets an individualized approach to their education. In addition, PCS is a four-day instructional week school. The students here come to school Monday through Thursday and have three-day weekends. We have found the shorter weeks have resulted in improved student concentration and information retention. Our school is future-focused and emphasizes teaching to the whole of the child. Rather than teaching a student enough information to pass a test and forget it, we help our students retain the information learned and learn new vital life skills along the way.
As our school grows, so does our athletic department. The athletics program presents students with situations to practice teamwork, camaraderie, and self-discipline. PCS currently offers the following sports for our fourth – eighth graders:
- Cross Country
