Penns Valley Youth Center

Our Mission at the Penns Valley Youth Center is to provide 6th through 12th graders in our community with hope, worth and friendship.
We provide a fun and safe environment in order to encourage healthy habits and promote wise choices.
Teenage years are a crazy time. Do you remember when you were in high school? Increased after-school workload, increased commitment required from athletics, highly competitive collegiate entrance requirements all add to the mounting pressure facing high school and junior high students. Teenagers from every walk of life need a third place – a place outside of the home and the school – where they can relax, have fun, meet friends, and be themselves.

In addition, students who are bullied or come from broken homes suffer tremendously and struggle low with self worth, self confidence and the inability to have healthy relationships with their peers and adults.

We are fighting to change this. By providing a safe and fun environment, a place where the teenagers are valued and respected, we want to change these stats:

  • Approximately 160,000 children a day stay home from school because they are afraid of being bullied. 86% of students said, “other kids picking on them, making fun of them or bullying them” causes teenagers to turn to lethal violence in the schools. [US Dept of Education]
  • 43% of US children live without their father. [US Department of Census]
  • 85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. [Center for Disease Control]
  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. [National Principals Association Report]
  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes. [US D.H.H.S., Bureau of the Census]

Nittany Christian School

40 years of History

Early in 1975 a group of dedicated individuals began meeting with a vision for establishing a Christian school in State College, Pennsylvania. Their goal was to establish a school that would “provide a high quality education which would integrate the students’ learning experiences with scriptural principles.”

After diligent work through spring and summer, Alliance Christian School opened that fall in the basement of the State College Christian and Missionary Alliance Church. Preschool and kindergarten classes were offered and twenty-six students attended. The following year first grade was added and an additional grade was added each of the next years until sixth grade opened in 1980 and the school enrollment was more than 120 students.

The school continued to grow. In 1978, with the help of skilled volunteer labor provided by church members and school parents, the school moved to the church’s newly completed educational building. The church’s location on Norma Street was particularly advantageous for the school as it bordered a city park that was enthusiastically put to use for recess and physical education classes.

As the school grew, the name was changed to Mt Nittany Christian School in 1987 to better reflect its broad community make-up. Over the years, the school has typically served families from twenty-five to thirty area churches each year and it continues to be the desire of the school to support churches and families throughout the Centre Region.

2000 was an exciting year for the school. The long-anticipated new campus for the church and school was completed and that summer both the church and school relocated to their current spacious location on Whitehall Road. At the same time, the school shortened its name to Nittany Christian School (or NCS as it is commonly known by students and parents) and reorganized the structure of its grades. The elementary school became kindergarten through fifth grade and a new middle school was created, beginning with sixth grade and then adding seventh and eighth grades in the following years.

In 2010 a milestone was reached when the school, with the blessing of the Alliance Church, became a separate non-profit organization and was granted individual 501(c)3 status. It is the desire of the school and church alike that this new standing will increase our ability to be a truly community-based Christian school.
