PCST uses the School of Tomorrow system of education which also has over 6,000 schools in over 140 countries. The curriculum consists of the following programs:
Preschool with Ace and Christi
ABC's with Ace and Christi Learning-to-Read
Junior High School Program
Senior High School Program
The ABCs with Ace and Christie is a complete program for learning the vital skills of phonetic reading for children who have been tested and are "ready to learn to read".
This program utilizes a number of outstanding reading tools - a specially developed alphabet sequence, songs for each of the sounds, poems, displays, and physical and character development activities through Bible stories.
This intensive reading program takes only twelve to fifteen weeks to complete. Once a student finishes the program, he begins to read to learn accomplishing the first level of the elementary curriculum in the second semester of the same school year.
The elementary curriculum consists of eight (8) major academic subjects:
Word Building (Spelling),
Literature and Creative Writing,
and Araling Panlipunan.
Those eight subjects are all studied using PACEs (modules) designed for mastery and continuous progress.
There are also traditional classes for other subjects such as:
Physical Education & Health,
and Home Economics
In addition, the system utilizes the Readmaster Program. This is a computer-based, graded, reading program with both vocabulary, comprehension and speed development components.
Because computer skills are important, our students begin in the elementary level to learn proper fingering. The number of words per minute is honed throughout tenure at PCST.
Junior Highschool consists of specialize areas:
Math (Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry and Calculus),
English (English I - IV),
Science (Biology, Physical Science, Chemistry, and Physics)
Filipino (Filipino I-IV)
Bible courses (New Testament Survey, Life of Christ and others).
Lecture classes are conducted in Music, Values Education, Physical Education and Health, Home Technology, Science Laboratory (with hands-on Science experiments), and Computer Literacy. Also available for high achievers are advanced subjects in Math, English, and Science.
In addition, the system utilizes the Readmaster program -- a computer-based program with vocabulary, comprehension, and speed development components. The Typemaster program is also used. This program is designed to continue drills in proper fingering and enhance speed and hone keyboard accuracy.

In order to comply with the requirements of the Department of Education, School of Tomorrow Philippines has developed PACEs (modules) in subjects required for students studying in the Philippines
This subject, consisting of the twelve modules, is given to students who have already begun to read in English and/or finished the ABC's with Ace and Christi program, or to students who do not know how to read in the Filipino language. The oral activities are conducted as a group while the written assignments are accomplished individually.
Araling Panlipunan levels 1 through 6
There are 12 modules for each level in this subject. Written in Filipino, the subject introduces elementary students to the Philippine History, geography, and culture. A secondary purpose for this subject is that it serves as the Filipino "reading" PACE, assuring teaches that students are able to read and comprehend Filipino
Elementary Filipino levels 1 through 6
There are 12 modules for each level in this subject given to students who have demonstrated adequate reading and comprehension in Filipino. The modules begin with the very basics of the Filipino alphabet and end with an introduction to the different kinds of Filipino literature
This subject deals mainly with the history of the Philippines and the Filipinos, discussing the many changes and transformations that have taken place in our culture within our territory, and the impact that these continue to have.
The PACEs in this subject discuss the history of our Asian neighbours, their culture, geography and government. The subject goes further in that it also discusses the impact that other Asian countries have had on the Philippines, and the importance and relevance of a progressive relationship.
