First, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request your application form or you may view/download the application here. Next, return the completed and signed application. Remember to enclose the $150 application fee. Third, enclose a copy of the student’s most recent grades and standardized test scores or other indication of academic status/coursework. If the student has been home educated, parents will indicate the curriculum/approach used for each of the disciplines (History, Literature, English, Math, Science, Foreign Languages, etc.). Parents must request that their students’ church leader complete and separately return the pastoral recommendation form included in the application.
Once the application, student records, application fee, and pastoral recommendation have been received at PCC, the application will be reviewed by our Academic Enrollment Committee. If the application is approved, the parents will be notified with an invitation to interview with the Headmaster and Dean.
At the interview (which generally takes 60 – 90 minutes) we will discuss your application and seek to get to know the family and student both academically and spiritually. Student behavior, academic interest, and compatibility with our culture will be observed with care. This will include a discussion of academic placement/potential course selection.
After the interview, PCC staff will contact the parents to inform them whether the student has been accepted. If accepted, they will receive an enrollment agreement to sign and return along with the $300 placement fee, which will be applied towards the first semester’s tuition. PCC staff sign the enrollment agreement, and the student’s admission will be confirmed and held until the June deadline for tuition (according to the various payment options).
PCC has the final say in a student's course placement. Administrators and teachers will take parental preferences into careful consideration, coupled with evidence provided by other methods, such as entrance testing, and an understanding of the PCC academic culture.
