Providence Christian School began operation in the fall of 1978 with eighteen students in Kindergarten through grade 5. Over 40 years later, PCS has grown to the capacity for 200 students spanning Four-Year-Old Kindergarten (4K) through 8th Grade. Although much has changed at PCS over the years, academic excellence and teaching the truth of Jesus Christ has not.
Providence Christian School (PCS) maintains small class sizes with a target size of 22 students or less in Kindergarten through 8th Grade. Our 4K program offers two school days (Tuesdays and Thursdays) or three school days (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) per week. PCS utilizes a variety of Christian curricula (including Bob Jones University Press and A Beka). Conversational Spanish is incorporated in the curriculum in grades 4K through 4th grade and is offered as an elective for those seeking extra immersion. Extra-curricular activities include Drama Club, Spanish Club Viva El Espanol, Chess Club, and engineering offerings. Chapel is held weekly, with separate Chapel periods for grades 4K & K, grades 1-3, and grades 4-8.
PCS emphasizes servant leadership and provides many training opportunities for students. Community outreach events include our annual Veterans Day program, Grandparents and Senior Pals Day, and visits to local area convalescent centers. Students participate in a myriad of ministry projects every year.
Providence Christian School is an interdenominational school, which establishes Christian truth as a guide for life by teaching biblical truth. PCS admits students of any race, color, or national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, and athletic and other school-administered programs. Our doors are open to people of all races and national origins because of the love of God, as manifested in the ministry to redemption through Jesus Christ, intended for all people who receive it. To this end, Providence Christian School is pleased to serve Christian families in El Dorado County. Providence Christian School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
