2. As a community we commit ourselves to expressing Christian values in
responsible decisions and actions. While not all Christians agree about the
application of Christian values to specific situations, we expect honesty in
dialoguing about and applying Christian values to things such as the use of
language, leisure time and entertainment options, observance of the Lord’s
Day, and personal appearance.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson

I have been away from this thread because I have not had much internet access this week.
This thread is very offensive. So much for respecting other people's religion. You (General you), do not have to like or agree with a person's beliefs or religion to be kind or respectful. I personally know several well adjusted young people who go to PCC. Yes, it is strict, but that is the choice of the person that goes there. I can also tell you that most people do not go there because it is so cheap. They accept no federal funds, so that means no financial aid or loans meaning it all has to be paid out of pocket.
I went to a conservative Christian college. No-one forced me to go. I wanted to go there. I had a great experience. As for accreditation, it depends on your end goal. If you plan to be a pastor, missionary, or other such field accreditation is not important. Or, if you get your undergraduate degree at a private college, then transfer and get your masters at a State school. Some professions (like DH' s), depend on certification not your degree.
I feel like you are talking to me, Bonita, but not actually addressing me or the valid issues brought up. Let me know where I didn't respect someone's religion, please.
Can you point out where people have been disrespectful rather than generalize (generalizing is very hard to debate, and if you are here I assume you want to debate rather than just complain/play the victim). Do you think that it is unkind to believe in cults? I don't. Heck, I took a class on cults in my very christian school, its a very Christian thing to do to identify cults (Amazon.com: Larson's New Book of Cults (9780842328609): Bob Larson: Books) .

Just FTR, it IS an incredibly inexpensive school. They also have a ton of scholarships and work/study programs available. I can't think of any state or private schools in my state as cheap as this one. Not one. Our local community colleges are not even this cheap. I mean, thats good since it isn't accredited, but its hard to say that price wouldn't figure into many peoples decision when its a fraction of most other schools.
