The annual National Student
Convention brings together high school students using the ACE/School of
Tomorrow® System, providing a platform for them to display their God-given
talents and abilities. This competition motivates students to explore both
individual and group skills across various areas such as athletics, music, arts and crafts, speech, and academics.
Moreover, the National Student Convention contributes to character development as students gain insights into dedication, perseverance, and commitment in preparation for their respective competitions. Additionally, values like honor, respect, submission, and cooperation are nurtured through coaching, mentoring, and training in group events.
The annual Junior Student Convention (JSC) is one of the opportunities for our elementary-aged students to show their God-given talents and unleash their potentials. This competition requires discipline in preparation in obedience to God's command -- "And let us run with patience the race that is set before us" (Hebrews 12:1) and therefore helps build character and develop leadership. Students who actively participate in JSC learn valuable life lessons like increasing resilience, maintaining the right attitude, connecting with others, exercising flexibility, and managing strong feelings. PCST counts it an honor to train young children in both social skills and spiritual development.
PCST Foundation Week stands out as a highly anticipated annual affair, marked by exciting activities such as entertaining games, insightful career talks, and a profusion of enjoyable booths.

The festivities span an entire week and culminate in a captivating Field Demo and Family Day, making it an unforgettable highlight of the school year.

Moreover, the active participation and strong collaboration between the staff and the parents make this event truly remarkable. In addition to showcasing the talents of the participants, The Talent Night serves as a fundraising event that benefits students participating in the National and Junior Student Conventions.
This school activity events serves as a reminder that beyond the academic rigors lies a time for recreation and celebration of God’s goodness in the lives of the many people involved.

The Honor Roll is a quarterly
acknowledgment of students who have met specific academic criteria. Eligible
students are those who have completed their requirements, typically 21 stars
for elementary and 18 stars for Junior High School, successfully passed their
Mini Class Grades, and recited the Monthly Scripture Passage.
Students achieving an average of 95 to 100% are recognized as Honor A, while those with an average of 90 to 94.99% are designated as Honor B. Qualified students receive recognition in the form of an Honor Roll Field Trip or an Honor Roll Incentive.
Tri- weekly is a celebration of the accomplishment of a PACE in every subject within a three-week span of every quarter. Students usually have 7 to 8 subjects in the elementary program and 6 in junior high school. The goal of every student is to finish at least 1 PACE per subject for that period of time. The tri-weekly activity is a motivational tool to encourage students to finish set academic requirements so they can be rewarded an extra day of fun and excitement. The Tri-weekly is a free day of doing less academic work for students to enjoy the fruit of their hard work. Teachers carefully plan a set of activities for their students on that set date which happen twice every quarter.
Students look forward to every tri- weekly activity. It encourages them to be more productive and develop a sense of responsibility that what is set should be done and finished. Once they do, they know that their efforts will be rewarded. 1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJV) states, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.’’ The
Tri-weekly activity becomes a learning tool for students to understand that they should do their best to accomplish each task, knowing that it is for God’s glory.
Promotion is a commencement that marks the launch of new responsibilities, tasks, and opportunities to learn new skills, talents, and expertise. At PCST, Promotion Ceremonies are part of the annual end-of-the-year activities and are held for students transitioning from Elementary (Year 6) to Junior High School and from Junior High School (Year 10) to Senior High School. PCST Promotion ceremonies recognize the achievements attained by students at certain levels as they go through the curriculum of the ACE School of Tomorrow system. These promotions also confirm students' readiness for bigger, challenging, and more difficult tasks present at the next higher program of basic education. These occasions are formal events and planned to honor the hard work and academic successes of students.
One of the highlights in PCST's calendar is our Graduation Ceremony. This occasion is a culmination of our graduates’ hard work, time, and effort for the past 13 years of their basic education. PCST gives due importance to our Graduation ceremony to properly honor our students because this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for them. This is carefully thought out and lovingly planned as a special event and a joyous celebration as our graduates begin a new chapter in their life stories — and we want them to remember it as one of the landmarks in their lives. Ultimately, our Graduation Ceremony serves as a testament to God’s faithfulness not just to the lives of our students but also to our community of families and teachers.
