Park Christian partners with 406 students representing 17 local communities.
K–12th grade is all housed in one building; a distinction that we value, appreciate, and utilize. Fourth graders are reading buddies with Kindergartners. High School students are educational assistants in elementary classrooms. Most days you can drop by the school and observe the younger and older students working together, giving each other high fives in the hallway, and enjoying each other.
Here's a story a mom passed on to us about big kids and little kids together at Park Christian.
Grover (PCS 2nd grader): "Mom, something great happened at school today! Austin Daugherty (12th grade linebacker, basketball player, and shot putter) called my name at lunch. I went over and said 'yeah', and he said, 'want some of my oreos?'"
It made Grover's day! This is one of my favorite things about Park. Big kids and little kids together! If you see Austin, give him a pat on the back from Grover's mom. What a great young man!

The following letter was sent to PCS highlighting the joys of K-12th grade in one building.
As parent of a first grader at Park Christian School, we want to express our appreciation for one of the many things we have observed at PCS. We love the way the older students are integrated into the younger classrooms. A senior, Hunter Nickel, is a student helper in our son, Stuart's, class. It is a highlight of Stuart's day each time "Mr. Nickel" joins them. Stuart looks up to him so much. It means a lot to our son to have an older student take the time to notice and pay attention to him and the rest of his class. Kids can never have too many positive influences and role models.
Looking to the future, this is something that we very much look forward to our children doing some day when they are the upper classmen. We feel it is an excellent way to challenge the older students by having them get to know and be involved with the younger generations. We also feel it is a great way to encourage the older students to live out their faith and what they are being taught each day, because they know that little eyes are always watching them.
We are thankful for Hunter and all the other student helpers for taking the time to impact the younger children for Christ. In our opinion, this is just one of the many things that sets PCS apart.
