Pella Christian was established in 1939 as a private, Christian high school located in South Central Iowa. PCHS is accredited by the State of Iowa Department of Education and is governed by a board of elected constituents. The board, faculty, and staff adhere to the reformed world and life view that our world belongs to God and our lives are a testimony of thanksgiving and service to Him. Therefore we are partners with parents and local churches in educating the young people in our communities.
