Teaching the Whole Child

At PUCS, we encourage students to get out of their seats, to explore the world around them, and to ask challenging questions. We inspire students to see all of life as interconnected while we practice learning and serving in a diverse, urban setting.

The PUCS difference is in our priorities. We believe that by focusing on the needs and opportunities of our students at every age, by encouraging a sense of wonder, and by engaging mind, body, and spirit, academic success will come. And it has, for thousands of students.

Jesus warned, “Unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” It’s our job to make sure that whatever children are able to see – which adults apparently struggle to perceive – is preserved and nurtured.

We believe our approach to education guides and shapes children’s God-given curiosity about the world, which helps them thrive beyond our walls as they grow academically, emotionally, and spiritually.
