About Pella Christian

Pella Christian Schools is a parent run preschool – 12th grade system serving the students of Christian families on our two Pella campuses – Pella Christian Grade School and Pella Christian High School. Our long tradition of excellence began over 100 years ago . Today Pella Christian provides a Christ-centered, whole child education to over 750 students from 450 families representing over 70 Christian churches in South Central Iowa.

We want to help your student grow—academically, socially and emotionally, and most importantly, spiritually.  In partnering with you as parents, as well as your church, we help provide a solid academic and spiritual foundation for your student.  At Pella Christian Schools, we develop students’ God-given gifts and equip leaders for lives of service.

Our vision for each student is to cultivate discipleship habits and practices that both forms the learner and transforms God’s world around them. These Biblical characteristics include living our role in God’s story as image reflectors, community builders, God worshipers, justice seekers, earth keepers, order discoverers, beauty creators, creation enjoyers, truth seekers and servant workers.

Pella Christian Grade School and High School are Independently Accredited in the State of Iowa by our accrediting agency, Christian Schools International.
