General School Mission

Mount Pisgah Christian School provides an outstanding college preparatory education grounded in Christian faith and values. Mount Pisgah Christian School is a community guided by Biblical Truth and wise stewardship, developing Christian leaders who are prepared for college, the world, and life. Recognized as a leader in education, Pisgah inspires each community member to discover, explore, and pursue God-given talents and purpose. The Pisgah Experience builds lasting relationships, enables service to others, and encourages a lifelong love of learning.

A Typical Day

Because young children learn by doing, Pisgah provides hands-on activities and close interaction with teachers. The curriculum is carefully planned with fun activities that promote cognitive development, creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Most importantly, through these fun activities, children begin developing a love for learning.

The Half-Day program is available for children ages two to five.

The Full-Day program provides care for babies six weeks through children age four.

A Christian environment provides the setting for the curriculum, offering opportunities for each child to grow in the awareness of the love of God. Children develop pre-reading and pre-writing skills through art by learning to visually discriminate between colors, textures and shapes. They begin to realize that symbols have meaning and that letters are grouped to form words, phrases and sentences. When children play outdoors, they are developing language and social skills by talking (“Watch me!”), negotiating, sharing, creating order and rules, and trying out leadership roles. Each day is structured to allow alternating time for busy, active play and quiet activities. Pisgah is pleased to provide a high quality preschool experience that far exceeds daycare for infants and young children in Roswell, Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Norcross, Dunwoody, Milton, Cumming, and throughout North Fulton and Gwinnett counties.
