PCC makes the college transition easy.
Many home school students choose PCC to prepare for their future—in fact, over 1,000 homeschoolers attended PCC this year! That's because PCC offers the friendly atmosphere of a smaller college along with the academic opportunities of a larger college. Our mission is to provide a distinctively Christian-traditional, liberal arts education that develops students spiritually, intellectually, morally, culturally, and socially. Consider a few of the many reasons for choosing PCC:
Regardless of your major, you can prepare for a life of service to God in an atmosphere that encourages spiritual growth. As a Bible-believing Christian college, PCC desires to keep Jesus Christ preeminent in every class and activity.
PCC offers quality education in a variety of fields. Whether it's Bible, business, studio art, education, engineering, missions, nursing, pre-law, pre-medicine, youth ministries, or any other major, students receive an excellent education from qualified faculty. PCC faculty care about their students and are friendly, approachable, and dedicated to academic and spiritual success.
PCC is known for having a friendly spirit. All around campus, you can find someone with whom to enjoy a meal, study for class, or share an activity. Many times, roommates become some of your closest friends and help you feel at home.
Collegian outings, class parties, dramatic productions, choral and instrumental concerts, intercollegiate or intramural sports competitions, and a variety of recreational activities provide opportunities to get involved and develop lifelong friendships.
In addition to our low tuition, room and board ($7,996 per year), homeschoolers who used the A Beka Academy Video Program (in grades 9–12) can receive credit toward PCC for every tuition dollar spent by way of the A Beka Academy Tuition Scholarship. Additional financial assistance is available through on-campus work assistance jobs.
PCC is full of opportunities for young people desiring a Christian college education. One of the best ways for you to know if PCC is right for you is to come for a campus visit. When you arrive, friendly campus hosts are available to give tours and answer questions; students welcome you to the residence halls, chapel, meals, and Sports Center; and faculty invite you to classes so that you can enjoy the full PCC experience.
Or attend one of our College Days, with special activities planned just for our guests. Prospective students get an up-close look at college life by staying in the residence halls, taking a personalized campus tour, and visiting classes.

Homeschool grads say—
One of the main transitions for me was learning how to make good, lasting friendships. In the atmosphere here at PCC, I had many more friends to choose from.

Academically, the transition from high school was very smooth. When I got to PCC, I used the same study habits I had exercised in high school
and was able to align quickly with a class schedule.
