Welcome to PSCS!

The PSCS community is a kind, inclusive, joyful community—where our students are inspired by dedicated teachers, administrators, and mentors, to pursue their passions every day. The PSCS program promotes self-direction in learning and life, social justice, and community engagement. The PSCS mission, to turn passion into achievement, is lived daily by our students and community of educators. Our students are known for developing the skills and dispositions to be successful, not only at school, but in life after PSCS.

This is a place where students are well known, challenged to be the best versions of themselves, and cared for by our staff throughout their middle and high school experiences.

During their time here, PSCS students gain an authentic understanding of who they are and how to use their position in the world to impact positive social change. Their academic work provides them with the ability to think critically and inclusively. Their unique school experience enables our graduates to be extremely prepared for life in the 21st century. PSCS alum go on to lead lives that are purposeful and impactful, making an imprint on the world around them, both locally and globally, in deep and lasting ways.

I hope you will come to our campus to experience for yourself the magic that is PSCS. Our school is a very special place, where students are engaged in relevant and joyful learning every day.

Staff Profile

Duncan Moore

Here’s how PSCS friend and volunteer, Duncan Moore, responded when asked to describe his involvement at PSCS: “When I meet folks while at a PSCS event I’m often asked, ‘So, what’s your connection to PSCS? Which child is yours?’ To which I respond, ‘None of them. I don’t have children.’ So what is my connection to PSCS? Why did I serve on the board, facilitate classes, and generally hang out as much as I can? It’s because I’m secretly envious of all the kids that do get to attend PSCS. I turned out pretty okay despite the best efforts of both the public and private school systems. I don’t regret that and am grateful for the person I am. “However, ever since I was introduced to PSCS in 2007 and attended a volunteer orientation night I’ve had a little fantasy game that involves what I COULD have become had I been invited to attend a place like this when I was 11 years old. “I’ve spent decades of struggle learning the self-actualization skills that most PSCS seniors have on graduation day. As the adult that I am, PSCS has turned MY passion into achievement. My involvement in PSCS is to make sure that it is available to the next 11-year-old Duncan, whoever that is.” Read More >
