Letter from Head of Schools
It is an exciting time to join the Panther family! This school is a dream come true for many in San Diego County, especially for the South Bay region. The leadership of Pacific Coast Christian Prep (PCCPrep) understands the rich diversity and exceptional people who make up this region as we all grew up in Chula Vista and many of us still call this wonderful community home. Bringing a world-class Christian educational institution with a vision and passion for the young lives is a high calling and a humbling honor for all of us at PCCPrep.
As a parent of 5 adults and over 30 years in Christian educational administration, I personally understand the deep need for quality, enriching Christcentric education that prepares the hearts and minds of our young to become impactful leaders in the future. We value service to others and recognize that a leader must first be a servant. Service to God and service to others is the ultimate point and purpose of education.
True Christian education consists of developing critical reasoning skills in students who can ascertain the various underlying worldview from publishers, authors, teachers, coaches, media, entertainment and the world around them, and compare those views to a Christian worldview. Our exceptional academics, elite athletics, and expressive arts programs all function together to build the character and gifts uniquely inherent in each child. From our Transitional Kindergarten program which lays a firm foundation in the social, emotional, physical and mental development of the young, to our K-12 school emphasizing 21st-century learning modalities with a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), students will be equipped with the tools necessary to pursue the college and career opportunities of the future. We desire our students to be curious active learners who investigate, question, analyze and explore with their hands, their hearts and their minds. These things happen when experienced and inspired faculty lead willing students who are strongly supported by an engaged and caring community.
As we look to our future, we are committed to becoming one of the leading preparatory schools in the nation while remaining grounded and rooted in Christ. We will invest in the lives of the students, in the lives of the parents, and in the lives of our dedicated and highly trained faculty and staff.
We encourage you to learn more about our Pacific Coast Christian Prep community and join our family as we engage in our mission and high calling. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at Richard.Andujo@pccprep.org or 858.945.6043.
