PCS is fully accredited through ACSI. Our rigorous and continual accreditation process strengthens, equips, and advances our effectiveness via innovation, research, and direct inspection of every facet of our program by academic professionals from around the world. All of our teachers must be ACSI certified, hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree (over 50% have an earned master's or more), and continue in ongoing professional development.
Welcome to Payson Christian School. I am Dr. Aaron Walp, the school Administrator. My wife, TJ, and I have been married for over 31yrs, have two adult sons and a granddaughter. We love the outdoors and backpack, kayak, ride our CanAm, or whatever else we can do to get outside and take in this breathtaking Arizona scenery. God showed off when He designed this fantastic state!
I have had the privilege of serving in various leadership positions in six states. From my diverse background, we have made numerous calculated changes over the last two years. We seek simplicity: Honor God. Never settle for mediocre. Do not speak the words, "That's the way it's always been!" There is always work to be done, and nothing is "below" anyone! Lastly, start each day expecting to learn something new.
No one at PCS has "arrived," we are servants of the Most High and always learning, growing, and demanding innovation.
I would love to have you join us as we work together to make PCS a top-notch ministry that adequately prepares students for the rigors of a very tough tomorrow. We live in a real-world with real problems; let's get our kids ready for reality via a solid education.
