How much time per week will my child need to spend on work outside of class?

It is our hope that your children will love their schoolwork and projects and want to spend all day on them!
Schoolwork time really does vary from child to child, but a good rule of thumb is one hour of homework, per day, per class.

What educational resources are used at PCS?

Great question! At PCS, we have researched the VERY best for your students!
For upper elementary reading, we will be using grade-level books and novels to teaching literature concepts. We will be digging DEEP into every reading and writing standard, every single week! This is proven to be MUCH more beneficial than teaching reading skills in isolation.

For math, we will be using a variety of resources that will challenge your student to be a problem solver and a critical thinker! This includes resources like the Saxon method, along with hand selected supplementary resources from our instructors.

Is this an accredited school?

You can think of PCS as being a helping hand, a supplement to your homeschooling efforts, a guide in the process, not only providing a place for your child to be mentored and experience engaged conversation and challenging course material, but also a resource for you, the parent, to come and ask questions, receive guidance, and have your child held accountable to reaching high learning standards. That being said, accrediation is not necessary for homeschool programs such as ours, and does not offer any added benefits to the learning process, so we have not sought that out. We prefer to let our results and the student experience speak for itself! Learn more about homeschool accreditation here:
