Our History

Go There!

We Thrive on Diversity

In 1981 we began The Potter’s House with the intention of making a real difference in children’s lives. Class sizes would be kept small. Families would be involved. Lives would be changed. We would emphasize the principles of discipleship, stewardship, and decision-making in a Christ-centered atmosphere.

The Potter’s House has a unique approach: a truly Christ-centered education for a diverse student body.

Today we are fully accredited and have more than 530 students in grades PK-12 on two campuses. While many exciting things have changed about The Potter’s House since 1981, our mission has remained constant: making Christ-centered education available to all children.

You are part of The Potter’s House. We need you.

Thirty years ago we began The Potter’s House with the intention of making a real difference in children’s lives. Today, we see all of this taking shape in the Potter’s hands.

“Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” Isaiah 64:8

The Potter’s House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nondiscriminatory organization.

This school is accredited by The Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation.

Senior Stories

    I started TPH in Kindergarten and it’s been great ever since. The first week I was here I was standing on the playground and a boy came up to me and asked if I had any friends and I said, “no” so he took me over and introduced me to some kids and they’ve been my friends ever since. My best memory is from first grade in Miss VK’s room. I was tired and falling asleep and she took me to the office. I thought she would just leave me there but she stayed with me and talked to me and was very nice and welcoming. The teachers here really relate to students and encourage them in the individual talents they want to express. I’m unsure about college but I’m thinking about attending GRCC or Kendall. I want to go into design or engineering.

    My dad started teaching here when I was in 5th grade so that’s when I started attending TPH. Before I came here I really didn’t understand the Bible. I love the diversity here and because I’m of mixed race, I love and appreciate all the colors here! I went on a mission trip to the Congo and left a piece of my heart there. Someday I’d like to return there as a pediatric nurse practitioner and then travel with that profession. I want to help people get adequate health care.
