Parkview Christian School is excited to be celebrating our 28th year! Formed in 1992, we were started by four families from Parkview Church who were looking for an alternative way of educating their children in a God centered environment. They were familiar with Perimeter Christian School, so they met with the principal there and also the principal at Intown Community School. Both schools were ministries of their respective PCA churches and employed the methods of Charlotte Mason. After about a year of research and planning, the school started in August with 4 students in 1st grade. The next year they added a Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and a 3rd/4th grade combination, then added a grade each year until we were K-8. That first group of four students graduated from 8th grade in 1999.
Over the years, PCS has ministered to and educated almost 2,000 students. But it is not only the students whose lives are touched, but also the families and the teachers. Lifelong friendships have been formed and lives have literally been changed. God has used our little school to do great things in the world. After the past 27 years, we have students who are now lawyers and doctors, who are working in government, education, business, the mission field and who are now parents themselves. There are so many stories of God’s power and provision for PCS. We believe that God has sown seeds here that our teachers have nurtured and then we have seen the ultimate harvest of fruit in these young people.
Along with those two mentor schools that helped us get started, Perimeter and Intown, PCS is part of a group of like-minded schools called Childlight Schools. There are now 17 schools all over the country that are part of the Childlight organization. There is even a school in Nicaragua! Being a part of this group gives us accountability, fosters relationships among our teachers, and supports our administrators in their endeavors to build disciples.
