Pella Christian is a secure campus.  It is locked during the school day and all visitors must sign in with our front office staff.

Pella Christian has a dress code, but does not require student uniforms.  A reasonable dress code should not frustrate the students who must abide by it or the faculty and administrators who must enforce it.  Our appearance, like all of life, must honor God.

Pella Christian Schools has a 1:1 technology program for students in 4th grade and older.  The desire of Pella Christian is to continue to provide tools and resources for our students who are 21st century learners. Increasing access to technology is essential for the future of our students and the use of devices is a way to help them apply technology in college, in the workplace, and beyond.  

Pella Christian Grade School and Pella Christian High School are accredited schools in the State of Iowa through Christian Schools International.

As an independently accredited school in the State of Iowa, Pella Christian has the ability to add, delete, and modify state and national curriculum such as Common Core to align it with our core values as a faith-based institution.  When each curricular area is reviewed a team of teachers, administrators, board representatives, and parent volunteers examines the Iowa Core to determine the desired level of alignment in that curricular area. As we create curriculum that promotes the Pella Christian vision, mission, and values, we choose to use standards from the Core only if they reflect our desired rigor and do not conflict with our beliefs.
