Academics at a Glance

Professional Children’s School provides a well-rounded, college preparatory education to students in grades 6-12.  Working with young people who are pursuing careers or rigorous pre-professional training while attending a college preparatory school requires flexibility on the part of the faculty. Students and teachers forge close relationships in supporting students reach their academic goals. While the mission of the school remains the same, the academic program at PCS has grown ever more rigorous since its founding in 1914. Today, the overwhelming majority of PCS graduates attend college or conservatory immediately upon graduation; the remainder choose to continue their pre-professional training or professional careers.
