College preparedness begins in Lower School with an Enrichment Program, Handheld Response Systems, Think Tank and full Science Lab. All teachers have iPads and all classrooms are equipped with Apple TVs. Technology instruction begins in PreK along with weekly instruction in Bible, Spanish, Library Science, Music and PE. Our Early Childhood Program serves students 3 months to 3 years.
Our daily Bible classes, weekly Chapel services, grade level retreats and small groups all lay the groundwork for a graduate prepared for the rigors of life. While there are no guarantees, the development and growth of a child's heart and spiritual life is a wise endeavor, the cornerstone of our ministry, and the legacy we are most grateful for.

School Reviews

I have been a parent at CCS for 17 years. My oldest soon graduated from CCS two years ago and my youngest is just entering middle school. Both of them have been at CCS since K3. The academics have been rigorous, my oldest was very comfortable in college and was exempted from an entire semester of entry level courses because of his test scores on the national AP exams. Both of my boys are thriving and have been taught, cared for and mentored by the staff and faculty of this wonderful school. Of course, college prep is available at many schools, but the spiritual foundation that they have is not available everywhere, and certainly not done with the excellence and dedication from these folks. The leadership opportunities, the family atmosphere and the cultural commitment to excellence and spiritual growth is felt from the grounds keeper to the Head of School. The investment and sacrifice my family has made to have our children here is considerable, while certainly not as much as others. However, it was worth every penny. This school has blessed our children and blessed our family. It is a community I am so proud to be part of, and I encourage anyone looking for an exceptional educational experience to give them a serious look. Go Lancers!
