Penticton Christian School is......
A place that you can trust.
A place that is loving.
A place that encourages God dreams and passions.
A place for growth.
A place where God is first.
A place where teachers not only care for your child's educational needs
but spiritual, emotional, and physical ones as well.
Why do we choose PCS, because it's more than a school, it's a family.”
From the Wadson family
“I highly recommend Penticton Christian School!
All of the teachers are so kind to each child, truly encouraging each to their strengths.
Both of my children have thrived under the direction of teachers who have taught here at Penticton Christian School for many years.
My children LOVE to attend and learn.
I am confident that the Penticton Christian School has set a solid foundation for their learning path
and that they have developed a true love for learning.
The school offers sport activities, art, music and much more to all of the students
and my children love participating in all of the activities and have gained an appreciation for each.
I am confident that I have made the BEST choice for our children at Penticton Christian School.
Both of my children: Emma and Kaine have truly blossomed over the past three years
academically, emotionally, spiritually and socially and both of them are always eager to go to school
and they have a wonderful relationship with their teachers.
The principal and teachers make themselves very accessible and very supportive.
The loving environment, the organization and the teacher’s curriculum
and instruction are what I believe to be the key success of the Penticton Christian School.”
Prof. Maddy Vizinteanu-Wilson
Penticton Christian School's appreciation for each person's denominational preference provides opportunity for everyone to serve Christ together in the spirit of love and fellowship. As teachers seek to model love, joy, gentleness, patience, and self-control, the classrooms and the school become a safe, caring environment for everyone.
