At the Pittsburgh Urban Christian School (PUCS) our mission is to equip students to engage the world with their unique, God-given gifts. PUCS provides an excellent education in an urban setting for a racially and economically diverse group of students. We are committed to educating from a Christian perspective with a curriculum characterized by integral thematic units, close student teacher interaction and substantive parental involvement. By offering a high quality, affordable education, PUCS seeks to play a leading role in enhancing the quality of life for the people of Wilkinsburg and surrounding communities. Our staff of certified teachers is dedicated to facilitating each student’s spiritual, personal, social, academic and physical growth.
At PUCS we reflect on the fact that our community is interlinked and strive to address the multiracial, multi-cultural composition of the city and the world surrounding us. We seek to reflect the diversity of the students and the greater Wilkinsburg community we serve within the composition of our leadership and faculty, recognizing the strength that results from having a diverse staff.
