This school has been an amazing blessing in our life. It brings such peace knowing you are leaving your kids such such good hands. Christ is truly at the heart of everything here. The staff are great people with sincere hearts toward kids and towards God. Don''t be fooled by the public stigma of Christian schools. There is nothing arrogant, hoity toity, or even remotely snobbish about this place. There are people from all denominations and all demographics. My boys love it and have learned so much. It is an awesome feeling to have your kids come home from school talking about some science project and how it teaches them about God and how they are going to work harder at being being obedient because they want to honor God (real conversation with 3rd grade son). Some things you can ot put a price tag on... Worth every penny!!

Our family has been a part of CTCS for four years. It''s been a positive transforming experience for us. Our oldest child blosomed through the care of his teacher and coaches. Christ is at the center of this school and its mission. God has moved mightily at CTCS. Sixth grade retreat is awesome. Band and athletic opportunities are exceptional for a school this size. Academics are strong--admission to the best colleges in Texas is not a problem. Teachers will challenge students to excel but within the context of a loving Christian environment.
