A Partnership with First Presbyterian Church (FPC)

Family, School and Church united in the education and support of each Child.

The founding purpose of Presbyterian School was and remains to provide families with a “Christ-centered learning environment in which the total family will experience support and growth.”  In 1986, Dr. John William Lancaster, Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, appointed a School Study Committee to explore the feasibility of an Early Childhood and Lower School at the church. Presbyterian School was officially founded in 1988 and opened its doors to offer a distinct educational program for families in the Houston area in the Fall of 1989 on the campus of First Presbyterian Church.

Presbyterian School seeks to help its students understand and believe, at the simplest yet deepest level, that God loves them unconditionally.  Children of all races, ethnic groups, and religious backgrounds are welcome and will be encouraged to develop their spiritual identities and their love of God in a Christ-centered environment.

The School's partnership with FPC is evidenced in the following daily tangible ways:

  • Sharing campus space that includes classrooms, meeting areas, dining halls, gyms, playground and fields. 

  • Sharing the value and practice of equipping people with a "livable theology.” The School Chapel and Bible curriculum mirror the FPC children and youth ministries in using the same Bible translation in addition to the ThinkOrange, Sparkhouse, and Alpha for Youth curriculums. The 7th grade Bible and Faith curriculum is also utilized as the Confirmation curriculum at FPC.

  • Supporting the same community outreach partners in the Museum District including Nehemiah Center, Emergency Aid Coalition, Main Street Ministries, Main Street Gardens and The Summer Institute.

  • Sharing parent education events, community building events, and the resources that accompany each special event. Each year, FPC provides Bibles for every PK3 and 1st grade student.

  • FPC staff work with PS students and serve as special chapel speakers, coaches, class trip chaperones, bible study leaders and more.

  • Staff for the School and FPC work closely in areas of communications, media, operations, events and parent ed. 

  • FPC outreach to School families includes an annual Presbyterian School Sunday, invitations to participate in children, youth and adult ministries events, trips, bible studies and small groups. FPC children's ministries has designated parents who are both FPC members and PS parents to serve as Class Ambassadors on behalf of the Church. These ambassadors help to communicate and share opportunities for PS families to get involved with the Church.
