AN EDUCATION WITH AN ETERNAL FOUNDATION

AN EDUCATION WITH AN ETERNAL FOUNDATION

Parkview Baptist School (PBS) is an independent school with the mission to seek first the Kingdom of God while providing students with a college-preparatory, Christ-centered education. Our faculty is dedicated to developing the individual potential of all students through an intentional focus on the four A's or four core areas: Abundant Life, Academics, Arts, and Athletics.

Abundant Life is the foundation of our school. Our weekly Chapel services, daily Bible classes, service projects, and mission trips are just a few of the ways we lead our students to live like Christ. Through the faithful teaching of the Word and its practical application to life, our students become productive leaders in our high?tech world. Parkview's comprehensive college?preparatory program is designed to develop skills and attitudes within its students that will well equip them not only to perform with distinction in college, but also for a successful life. Through the Arts, we hope to enhance students' cultural understanding and to develop an appreciation of performing and visual arts, as well as to nurture and build confidence in our talented students. Athletic competition is a vital part of their all-around educational experience. Through athletics, we hope to develop strong work ethic, Christ-like attitudes, and a servant's spirit in our students.

Parkview Baptist is small enough to have a family feel on campus, but large enough to offer students many opportunities to have a well-rounded experience. In fact, this balanced approach to Abundant Life, Academics, Arts, and Athletics is what attracts many families to PBS.
