Hello from Phillips Community School (PCS)! We have an important update to share with you. As many of you know, we spent much of this year working on securing our school’s building and preparing to launch our school this coming fall. There are several steps in the process of securing a building, including lease agreements with building owners, city approval and permits, and construction to make a building suitable for a school. Many of the steps in this process are out of our control and can take significant time. Unfortunately, our building was not able to be approved and constructed in time for us to open PCS in September. For this reason we will be delaying our opening until the fall of 2017. However, we are still very excited to serve your student/s and family. As you know, our model has proven to be highly successful around the nation, with 95% of students graduating and accepted into college. We hope you will still choose to be part of this success and consider enrolling your student again for the fall of 2017. We will be enrolling 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, and will have a high school option to follow.
Throughout this next year we will have family socials and events for students to build a strong school community as we prepare to open. We hope that you will be part of our PCS family and look forward to growing relationships with you!
