Why Choose Pella Christian?

Excellent teachers. Variety of programs. But the most important reason?

Jesus Christ. He’s central to all we do here.

Welcome to Pella Christian Schools

Thank you for your interest in Pella Christian Schools. We partner with families seeking a faith-based education, where students are supported to discover their individual, God-given gifts.

We want to help your student grow—academically, socially and emotionally, and most importantly, spiritually. In working with you as parents, as well as your church, we can help create a solid academic and spiritual foundation for your student.

Our children have previously attended public school as well as another Christian school. This is the first school we have experienced that truly focuses on developing the “whole” child — which extends far beyond academics. When we visited PC we instantly fell in love with the school culture and the firm foundation built on living a life for Christ.
