There is a new school coming to Pittsburgh: one that provides classical, Christian education for the whole person.
Our first campus was founded in Houston in 2016, where we are now operating one of the largest Orthodox Christian schools in the nation with over 550 students. We are continuing our mission to provide that same quality educational experience nationwide, and our first branch campus will open here in Pittsburgh in 2024. With the support of our National and Pittsburgh Boards of Directors, TSCS is dedicated to providing in Pittsburgh a comprehensive formational education that is engaging, rigorous, and in harmony with the Eastern Orthodox Church. Guided by a commitment to the timeless traditions of the Christian Church, mind, and worldview, The Saint Constantine School endeavors to educate students for the Church, the city of Pittsburgh, the United States, and the world.
Why join the Saint Constantine community?
Our Houston campus opened in 2016. Read what TSCS Houston parents and alumni have to say about the Saint Constantine experience.
There are so many ways that TSCS prepared me for my future, both practically and with regards to that which is true and beautiful.
I was not a strong paper writer; turning in CQs and final papers was nerve-wracking as I struggled to find a consistent voice and express ideas clearly. Now, nearly three years post graduation, I am on track to publish my first peer-reviewed academic journal. That's the thing about Saint Constantine: in those halls I was never taught to fulfill a grade, but was instead encouraged to strengthen my skill.
But, life is not merely academics. In my friendships, I tend to form the tightest bonds with those who love lengthy deep dives into truth and beauty. I read constantly. In my vocation, which is Landscape Architecture, I get to connect with the sublimity of the earth, and reading great poetry helped me unlock that vocabulary of magnificence which is required when one is beholding the beauty of creation.
I believe ultimately that TSCS prepared me to live deeply. Leaving Saint Constantine is leaving with a pocket-full of universal truths, that help in the shaping of my daily life, my personal beliefs, and my friendships.
Every day, each of us asks ourselves about what to believe and what to dispute, when to listen and when to speak, how to be gracious and how to be bold. As I make those judgements, I find myself continually grateful for the methods I learned in my classical studies and the mentors who guided me.
I’ve long forgotten the due dates and tests I faced at fifteen, but I remember the greater lessons about goodness, truth, and beauty. Those came largely from discussion with my peers, exposure to great ideas, and the example of my teachers. I learned to seek excellence not just in the pursuit of a grade, but of a better life. The Saint Constantine School is run by people who inspire and model that kind of living.
If you care about that - and I think you should - TSCS is a great place to be.
The truly Socratic conversations at The Saint Constantine School have enlightened my teenagers to seek Truth, Wisdom, and Knowledge in Christ at a university honors program-level of understanding, all while still in high school.
The teachers and staff at the Saint Constantine School helped me graduate two students into university honors college programs, and we are excited to have two more students currently enrolled under their excellent tutelage.
When I was a student at The Saint Constantine School, their instruction and guidance gave me my first glimpse of not only the importance of education, but its beauty, too. The books we read together and the discussions we had changed my life, redirecting it towards the most positive ends - not merely a little accomplishment in the classroom. They showed me the door to a good life, and taught me by example that it is always unlocked if only you try the handle.
The Saint Constantine School completely transformed the way I view the world. I was encouraged to connect with my peers through our vast range of ideas and differing opinions, rather than avoid them. I am more curious about the world and what lies beyond it, because I was immersed in an environment where I sought to understand the ideas contained in words like Good, Justice, and Truth. My faith strengthened through my peers and the faculty who had the same longing for God that I had, as I was constantly challenged to expand on my understanding of God and His creation.
Currently, I am an Audit Associate at a CPA firm in Washington D.C., and am working towards earning my CPA license. The Saint Constantine School helped build and fortify my confidence, and I would not be where I am today if it were not for the faculty and staff at TSCS who always believed in me and my ability to achieve my goals.
Saint Constantine's teachers do an amazing job of facilitating a safe environment for both academic and personal growth. At the same time that they are helping a student work through the problem of Anselm's argument for God, they are also helping the student work through the problem of their own future and the choices that come with growing up. They are not only strong educators but strong mentors as well.
“...the mission of our school reaches far beyond sending well-educated, well-rounded students into the world.”
