January 09, 2013Being prepared for college is important, but to succeed in today's competitive world, graduates must also be ready for life. That's the essence of the mission of Mount Pisgah Christian School: College Prep. Life Ready.
Mount Pisgah Christian School is an independent, non-denominational coeducation school serving children from six weeks of age through 12th grade. Known for rigorous academics and exceptional faculty who have a passion for teaching, Pisgah has quickly become the school of choice for North Atlanta families desiring the highest quality college preparatory education.
More than 90% of Pisgah graduates are accepted at their first choice of college. On average, Pisgah graduates score more than 200 points higher on the SAT than the Georgia public school average. Eleven Advanced Placement courses are offered and 75% of 2012 test takers scored more than three on the AP exam.
The Pisgah Experience is filled with challenging coursework and opportunities to develop a lifelong love of learning, build lasting relationships, and strengthen faith. Personalized instruction and one-on-one relationships between faculty and students are Pisgah trademarks. Teachers are invested in students' lives in the classroom, playing field, stage and on the mission field.
Pisgah's curriculum combines a biblical worldview with college preparatory academics. Students discover God's ultimate truth, their unique gifts, and their purpose in life. Students attend weekly chapel, with opportunities for participation in leading worship, devotions and music. Seniors serve as mentors
and camp counselors to middle school students. The annual spiritual retreat in the North Georgia mountains is a treasured tradition. Students are also encouraged to participate in school-sponsored mission trips and service projects.
Creative and imaginative Pisgah Arts students present grade level performances each year in Lower School. Middle and Upper School theatrical, musical, and visual arts performances, productions, and exhibits are also held annually.
Many of life's most valuable lessons can be learned through team interaction, discipline, cooperation, sportsmanship, sacrifice, and dedication. Pisgah's exceptionally qualified and dedicated coaches inspire students to develop these qualities, habits and skills. Exciting school athletic opportunities are offered to students beginning in sixth grade and children as young as three may be a part of the Patriot Community Sports program. Nearly 80% of middle and upper school students participate in the school's athletic program. Complete information on Pisgah Athletics is available at pisgahpatriots.org.
Safety and security are a top priority at Pisgah. A full- time security officer and on-site registered nurse provide an added level of care and protection for all students.
Many schools provide college-prep academics. What sets Pisgah apart? More than a school, Pisgah is a community. Ask any student, parent or teacher "What do you love most about Pisgah?" The answer you'll most likely hear is: "Pisgah is a family." Relationships. Christ-Centered. Warm. Personal. You are invited to experience Pisgah for yourself. Our Admission team looks forward to providing a personal tour. To schedule, please call 678-336-3443 or visit the school website at experiencepisgah.org.
