Carson Christian School, established in 1983, has been one of the most successful and growing schools in the Southland.
Because of the self-motivating aspect of the curriculum and the dedication of the staff, the students have made headlines, and have graduated from High School as much as 3 years early.
It is a self-paced, individualized program, allowing for students to work at their own pace without being in competition with each other.
From kindergarten through twelfth grade, our "no fail" system facilitates true mastery of the subject material, rather than social promotions.
