Equipping students to impact their world for Jesus.
Equipping students to be leaders through an exceptional education within a culture emphasizing Christ-like love, peacemaking, and service.
In all aspects of Quakertown Christian School, we value:
The model and teachings of Jesus are the foundation on which our ministry is built. Jesus, at work in individual lives and in all our relationships, creates a culture of grace, hope, and love evidenced by peacemaking and service.
We believe each child is created in the image of God, gifted with unique talents and abilities; we offer them a safe place to explore those gifts. By helping them to understand their value in Jesus Christ, we encourage them to use their gifts and abilities to uniquely further God’s Kingdom work, both here and around the world.
We provide a Biblically-integrated education with a curriculum that includes academics, arts, and athletics, as well as character building and conflict mediation. We expect and encourage everyone within our school community to always do their very best.
We develop leaders who follow Christ’s example of serving others first by providing opportunities for students to come alongside other students in mentoring programs, community outreach, and mission trips. These experiences strengthen our capacity for humility, empathy, and compassion while also nurturing confidence and awareness.
It is our intention that any family who values Christian education should not be excluded from our school due to financial or physical limitations. Additionally, we recognize the importance of communication between teachers, students, parents, faculty, administration, and the Board. Communication happens through weekly newsletters, class emails, parent-teacher conferences, town meetings, and various other methods.

Membership and Accreditation
Quakertown Christian Schools is accredited by AdvancEd and the Mennonite Education Agency (MEA).
Mennonite Education Affiliation and Accreditation
Quakertown Christian School is a member of the Mennonite Schools Council (MSC), a network of about 35 pre-K through 12 Mennonite schools serving more than 9,000 students in the US, Puerto Rico, and Canada. In partnership with the church, MSC advances Christ-centered PreK-12 education by networking schools and equipping them to implement the vision of Anabaptist-Mennonite education.
In 2018, along with AdvancEd accreditation, QCS also earned accreditation by the Mennonite Education Agency (MEA), which oversees Christian education from pre-K through seminary on behalf of Mennonite Church USA. AdvancEd accreditation body was selected for its rigorous academic review, as well as a commitment to holistic continuing improvement process. Having these two accreditations, though more work, reflects our desire to be committed to both a high educational and spiritual accountability.
