According to Niche, rankings combine “rigorous analysis with authentic reviews to highlight the best places to live and go to school.” This holistic approach includes school-specific data from the National Center for Education Statistics, ranking of colleges that graduates attend, test scores, and parent and student surveys.

PVCP Head of School Sheryl Temple shared that the rankings confirm what PVCP faculty have long witnessed in the classroom. “The students at Paradise Valley Christian Preparatory demonstrate a capacity for academic rigor that is unparalleled for their age. From the time students set foot on campus, they’re taught not just facts and figures, but how to reason and think critically, all within a truth-centered biblical framework.”

Survey responses also indicate that parents, students, and alumni are happy with their overall experience at PVCP, with one respondent stating, “I have a very supportive community of teachers and peers.” Another respondent shared that the use of the Socratic method “pushes students to engage in topics and [apply] a Christian worldview.”
