The PCS Difference
Nurturing students in Christ-like living, critical thinking and joyful service to be faithful citizens in God’s world.
Statement of Philosophical Foundation
Pacific Christian School is committed to a Christian program of instruction that helps children to gain a true Biblical perspective of who they are, and prepares them for a life of dedication and service to God, which will be the best preparation for a life of fullness and joy. By developing a sense of goal-directedness, coupled with skills of self-discipline and self-evaluation, children will be equipped to develop their talents and gifts to their fullest God-given potential.
Founded in 1960, Pacific Christian School currently enrolls more than 900 students from Preschool through grade 12. This represents approximately 500 families from a wide variety of churches. Currently over 90 Victoria area churches are represented in the school system. Our Elementary School building houses preschool through grade seven. Grades eight through twelve are located in our High School.
Within an atmosphere of love and belonging, PCS, as a Christian community of learners, seeks to understand relationships and live them in light of and informed by God’s Word. We acknowledge the diversity within our community and the uniqueness with which God has created each of us. (Psalm 139:13-16) In love (1 John 4:18, 19) and obedience, we embrace the breadth of being the ‘new humanity in Christ’, and this is reflected in how we treat all of our students (Gal. 3:28). We promote and encourage attitudes and behaviours that reflect the mission and aims of PCS. We welcome students as diverse as the people of God and strive to create an environment in which all students feel safe to engage in respectful conversation in the pursuit of truth as we seek to be formed and reformed by God’s Word.
As Christian teachers and parents, we recognize that each student is a unique creation of God, with differences in abilities and in ways of learning. The instructional program aims to respect each student’s individuality and seeks to empower each student in the recognition and use of his or her gifts.
Pacific Christian School is also a community where we learn to live together in ways which reflect the love that Christ has shown for us.
