The mission of Pocono Mountain Christian School is to equip students to become disciples of Christ while promoting academic excellence through a biblical worldview in a safe and loving environment.
At PMCS, we know that all truth is God’s truth and that true learning begins by knowing God. This
principle is embedded in every discipline taught. Our goal is to offer a Christ-centered education for students that empowers them to become life-long inquisitive learners, creative and critical thinkers, leaders, effective communicators, flexible collaborators, and ambassadors for the kingdom of Christ. The staff believes that teaching is a ministry and are willing to go above and beyond to make sure that families experience the best schooling experience for their child.
Through Scripture-based character development, daily prayer, and core Bible instruction, PMCS desires
to develop disciples for Christ. We incorporate weekly chapels into our students’ schedules in a desire to have God’s story come alive in developmentally appropriate and engaging ways.
We believe that students learn best through hands-on, movement-rich, multi-sensory learning
experiences. Students will engage in exploratory learning through the use of a workshop model, with leveled grouping on a daily basis. This will allow students to learn at their own pace while offering autonomy and choice in their learning experiences. The leveled groups will also lend itself to differentiated instruction, and universal design for learning which seeks to meet each child’s specific and individual academic needs.
In addition, our small classroom sizes and teacher to student ratios allow for one-on-one attention to be given to each and every student. Our students will engage in weekly chapels, health and physical education, art, and music classes. As our student body grows, and more grade levels are added, we look forward to a sports program as well as stem activities across all grade levels. We believe Pocono Mountain Christian School will help your child thrive cognitively, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
Matthew 19:14 states: “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven”. PMCS seeks to model this invitation. We want our students to know Jesus, to love Him and to have the joy and peace found in a relationship with Him. PMCS’s teachers and staff show the love of Jesus to our students by providing a safe and nurturing environment. Students are loved, cared for, protected, taught and called by name. Who our students are, how they learn, and what they think is of the utmost importance to us at PMCS – just as it is to Jesus Christ.
Tuition for grades Kindergarten-6th grade is $6,950
At Pocono Mountain Christian School we hope to foster a loving and healthy environment for our wonderful students to grow in. To that end we ask that all of our PMCS families understand and support the following Statement of Belief.
WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. We look to Scripture for truth and do not rely on personal experiences for our basis of doctrine.
WE BELIEVE that God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus is fully God and yet became a man to save mankind from their sin. We believe that Jesus is the promised Messiah, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life. We believe that He is the propitiation for the sins of mankind through His suffering and death on the cross. We believe that Jesus died and rose again on the third day, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and has sent the Holy Spirit to fill believers for His kingdom work.
WE BELIEVE that there is only one true God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that salvation is possible only through the Person of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit draws and convicts sinful men and women to repentance and total faith in Christ.
WE BELIEVE that marriage is a union between one man and one woman and that from the beginning of creation, God created humans in two distinct sexes, male and female.
WE BELIEVE that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. This includes pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend protect, and value all human life.
WE BELIEVE that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor align with Pocono Mountain Christian School’s beliefs.
