PCS accepts students ages 4 and up. In addition to our PreK to 12 educational programs for children, we also offer classes for adults and have an Activity Center for children under 4. Currently, PCS enrolls about 300 students, and has approximately 70 teachers and administrators.
There are two semesters in a school year, 14-18 weeks per semester. Classes are held on Sunday afternoons from 2 pm to 5 pm. The first two hours are language lessons and the third hour is for culture and arts. PCS also organizes local and national competitions, seminars, and stage performance opportunities for our students and families.
In an effort to promote Chinese culture and arts in the region, PCS regularly sponsors and participates in local community events such as Squirrel Hill Lunar New Year parade. In 2018, PCS received “Squirrel Hill Treasure Awards” in recognition for our outstanding contribution of education and diversity in the community (PCS report ). In 2019, PCS received recognition from PA Governor Mr. Wolf and PA Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs for promoting education in the Asian American and Pacific Islander community (PCS report ).
