UPPER SCHOOL - STUDENT LIFE
 
 
ANNUAL UPPER SCHOOL RETREAT (GRADES 9 - 12)
The 2-day POPCS Upper School retreat is a tradition that includes all Upper School students, teachers and administrators. The retreat is a powerful way for the Upper School students to connect and is extremely rewarding for students and faculty alike. Activities include sharing the word of God and engaging in recreational and mental exercises to build stronger relationships; student-to-God, student-to-student, teacher-to-student, and administrator-to-student. 
 
UPPER SCHOOL ANNUAL SENIOR TRIP
A highlight for every senior at our Christian school is the year-end senior trip to Walt Disney World in Florida. Seniors in good standing travel with school advisors and faculty for four days and nights to a selected destination. It has become a way for the Senior class to reminisce about high school and spend time together before they head off to college.
 
CARE AND CONCERN COUNSELING
To prepare a student for service and success, Prince of Peace Christian School considers the whole child's well being as a part of our exemplary education. As our School Counselor, Gary Prindiville seeks to provide daily support and resources for mental, emotional, wellness, and spiritual health for POPCS students, families, and school personnel. Should your child need mental or emotional support, Mr. Prindiville is happy to walk alongside them through any struggles they might be experiencing. Mr. Prindiville is a certified School Counselor and is working toward licensure as a Professional Mental Health/School Counselor for the state of Texas. Care and Concern Counseling is available for our private school's Lower, Middle, and Upper School students. Please email Gary Prindiville or call 972.598.1058 for information. The Care and Concern Counseling office is located in the Fine Arts Center hallway near the art studio.
 
OFF-CAMPUS LUNCH
Junior and Senior students have the opportunity to enjoy an off-campus lunch. Senior students will have two off-campus lunches a month; Juniors will have one off-campus lunch a month during the second semester. Parents must give their permission during the registration process for students to participate in off-campus lunches.
 
COLLEGE VISIT DAYS
Junior and Senior students are permitted to be absent from school to visit prospective colleges.  Juniors are allowed two days; Seniors are allowed three days.  Arrangements need to be made through the Upper School Office one week in advance.
 
FLIK INDEPENDENT FOOD SERVICES 
We are pleased to partner with Flik Independent School Dining (FlikISD) as our on-site lunch provider.  Flik prepares fresh food each school day in our beautiful POPCS kitchen and dining hall.  Chef Martine Archambault and her staff offer healthy, nutritious (often locally sourced), and nourishing food and is committed to building strong bodies and sharp minds.  The Flik meal plan is included in the POPCS cost of tuition.
