Portland Christian Schools - growing leaders in mind and spirit since 1947
 
At Portland Christian your student will receive an excellent education, and so much more!
 
Portland Christian is a community where learning stimulates intellectual and spiritual growth, growth precipitates change, and change empowers students to transform their world.  
 
In today's culture of compromised values, imagine a place where Christ-centered principles are woven into every area of academics and activities, where teaching is anchored in the truth and love of Christ, and where every child is valued, loved, and encouraged. 
 
This is Portland Christian Schools.  
 
We welcome your family to come explore the Portland Christian community.

Growing Disciples

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
~ John 13:35
 
Growing Leaders and Growing Disciples – what do these mean at Portland Christian? Leadership is not only about positions, titles, power, influence, and authority.  True leadership is also about service, integrity, humility, courage, and love for one another.  
 
For Christians, it starts with living our lives as followers of Jesus Christ.   PCS programs such as Peer Ministry, Digital Discipleship, Serve Day, and Chapel intentionally teach students about these qualities.  However, it is by engaging in the day-to-day activities of homework, sports, the arts, clubs, service projects, and even just hanging out with friends, that students put into practice what it truly means to be a disciple who leads by example.

"God's Work, Our Hands!"

This was the theme of the mission program at the elementary school during the 2017-2018 school year. We looked at how God changes us through prayer, action, people, and waiting.

Read about a family's experience at PCS:  
"PCS is a faith-based school where our kids could stay from start to finish — kindergarten through graduation — that’s small enough to provide a family-feel, but big enough to offer many options."  ~ a PCS parent
