IntroductionPui Tak Christian School is a unique Christian preschool and elementary school in the heart of Chicagos Chinatown. We started as a preschool in 1953 and expansion to 8th grade began in 2001. Pui Tak Christian School is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International and is registered with the Illinois State Board of Education as a nonpublic or private, elementary school. Our preschool for 3 and 4 years old is licensed by the City of Chicago and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
Character DevelopmentOur name Pui Tak literally means to build character or to cultivate virtue. It is our mission to create an educational environment that encourages students to develop exceptional character traits and admirable social skills. In addition, our curriculum is designed to provide quality academics and promote creativity to prepare students as life long learners.
Small Class SizeOne of the advantages of Pui Tak Christian School is our commitment to small class size. We keep class size to no more than 18 students per elementary room. Smaller classes enable our teachers to give students more one-on-one attention, nurturing, and encouragement to learn at their own pace. Also, small classes allow teachers to have a better sense of who your child is, and what his or her specific strengths and limitations are. Your child will also have more opportunities to speak up and participate in class discussions.
Our TeachersPui Tak Christian School is very selective about whom we place in front of our students, and we choose educators with experience and training specific to the area they are teaching. Students at Pui Tak Christian School have more opportunities than many schools to form relationships with their teachers, which can lead them to greater academic success. In addition, there are more opportunities for parent involvement and access to teachers and administrators.

In society today, institutions of learning often strive to educate the mind in an environment devoid of values. This is accomplished by attempting to keep faith and associated beliefs outside of the classroom or school. The result has been a society that often appears empty of values and amoral youth who are largely unchurched.The purpose of Pui Tak Christian School is to give todays children a reason for their existence through understanding Gods plan for their lives. This is accomplished in two ways:
By studying the Bible and helping students to personally apply the Bibles principles and teachings to their lives, students learn characteristics such as honesty, patience, kindness, and self control.
By integrating excellent academic training with the study of the Bible, students realize that the world is Gods gift to us and learn to appreciate it as they study language arts, science, history, math, physical education, music, and other subjects.
God made us as whole beings. Each of us has physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual dimensions. In order to develop to our fullest potential, we need to be trained in all of these areas. Pui Tak Christian School is a school that seeks to educate the whole child and meet their needs as human beings.
