Opening in 1975 as a preschool, the size of Parkview Christian School grew during the years to include the elementary through high school grades. However, local population levels have changed recently and currently we offer only pre-kindergarten through fifth grade classes.
The school chose an eagle as its mascot, drawing from Scripture the encouragement given in verse 31 of chapter 40 from the Book of Isaiah:
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings of an eagle; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
For the 2019 academic year Parkview Christian School has an enrollment of 73 students. We use the Abeka curriculum, a leader in private and home-based Christian education, for every subject. Our objective is to provide a thorough education to every student, an education with a Biblical worldview. Most of our teachers have been educators for many years, and several have been at Parkview for 20 or more years. One teacher is in her 40th year at Parkview.
Our school offers a scholarship program for promising students whose families are unable to finance a private education. Contributions from our donors support this program, some faithfully contributing as little as $10 per month. We send every contributor a letter each month with updates on the progress of our school and its students. Their generosity to our ministry allows children an alternative to public education where they can grow and thrive in a healthy, Christ-centered environment.
Our school offers a quality Christian education at the lowest price in this area. Annual tuition rates at Parkview are $1200-$1600 lower than other Christian schools in Eufaula and Abbeville, and one-half to one-third of the cost of some in Dothan or Columbus. We are able to do so by operating as a true non-profit organization, barely taking in more than we need to remain open.
Every year, over 200 Christian schools across America close because of declining enrollment. We pray that won’t happen to Parkview Christian School! We would appreciate your assistance, whether financially or as a volunteer, as you feel led to help. We ask that you pray for our staff and students, as well.
We invite you to visit Parkview Christian School and see for yourself the work that God has laid before us. As our Lord said, “Behold, I say unto you, ‘Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already unto harvest.’ ”
Thank you for your time and your interest in Eufaula’s best-kept secret.
