Christian Center School (CCS) has been educating children since 1976.
We specialize in elementary grades PreK3 - 8th.
Each school day begins with devotions.
The primary goals of CCS are to train the students in the knowledge of God and the Christian way of life and to give the students an excellent education.
Our vision is to assist the parents of our community in educating their children within a safe, nurturing, loving, and distinctively Christian environment through which they come to understand all of life (and learning) from a uniquely biblical world and life view.
