Message from Phil Adams, Principal JH/SH & Central Elementary

Phoenix Christian Unified Schools can trace its roots to the fall of 1912, after the Weed family had traveled west from Kansas, settling in what is now Peoria, AZ. At that time the Weeds established a school, called Old Paths Bible School. The school was located near 73rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road. It continued on for many years at that location and under the name of Old Paths. The school continued on, showing slow growth, and in 1947, it was decided that the name should be changed to Old Paths Christian High School. The plan at that time was to build on that location. It soon became apparent that the Peoria campus was not strategically located and that a new location should be explored. A temporary home was selected on the grounds of Capitol Christian Church at 110 N. 16th Ave. On May 2nd, 1949, Old Paths Bible School became Phoenix Christian High School (Building For Life, Harold Buckner).

Thus says the LORD:

“Stand in the ways and see,
And ask for the old paths, where the good way is,
And walk in it;
Then you will find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
Jeremiah 6:16 New King James Version

As you pray for our school, ask God to put a desire in our hearts to walk in the “old paths”.
