Our oldest daughter has been at this school for five years and we have watched the blessings from this school transform our girls. From day one our child's anxiety had subsided with the genuine kindness from her teachers! When behavioral expectations are implemented, real learning can thrive. The school offers many extracurricular activities and Extended Care without having to be put on a waiting list. It is worth every cent!

Looking back at my education, which was excellent, this is where I wish I could have gone. So, without question, I`m thrilled for my daughter to have the opportunity to attend Casas Christian. I feel secure in her safety, wellbeing and her future while she at Casas. God`s blessings are with this school and it`s administration and staff.

We LOVE Casas Christian School! Our son has grown so much these past 2years at Casas. We love the positive changes we see in our son! He`s more confident, he`s being challenged academically everyday, he`s learning how to serve others, and his relationship with Christ is growing everyday. Chapel time has really helped him understand who God is and who he is in Christ! We love being able to join him for chapel! Casas Staff is AMAZING, truly a special group people! The love and care they display for each child and their families is what makes this school one of a kind! We are BLESSED to be a part of CASAS!

We consider it a blessing and an honor to have our children attend Casas Christian School. The teachers are intentional, nurturing, and very talented educators. The class sizes create the perfect balance for teamwork with other students, and for individualized attention from the teachers. We also love seeing our kids growing in the Lord and striving to be better Christians every day.

Casas Christian School is more than a good private school, it is a phenomenal community with God in its core! My children have been in CCS since kinder and I have three kids attending CCS, ranging from k-5th! The teachers are extraordinary! All my kid`s teachers have been intelligent, loving, merciful and an amazing example of integrity! The principal is a wise and God-fearing man, and the entire staff is outstanding! My children not only get a high quality academic education, but they get trained in spiritual matters as well! I cannot say enough about this amazing school that I love and am proud to call home!

This has been a great experience having our children go to Casas. They look out and focus on the whole child. My oldest requires a softer and more hands on approach and her needs have really been meet far more than she was at her traditional schools. She has really blossomed her at Casas. Great staff, great teachers, and the best school period.

Casas is a great school, we love the curriculum, staff and atmosphere. There are many opportunities for our son to grow academically, spiritually and socially. Our son said he didn`t realize how much fun learning could be! We are blessed!

From day one it was evident that Casas focuses on the whole student. They are encouraged and challenged spiritually, academically, physically, artistically, musically, and the list goes on. We are very happy we found Casas Christian School and are excited to be a part of what they are doing in the lives of their students and families.

All three of my children have gone to or currently attend Casas Christian School from Elementary all the way through Middle School. The class sizes are small, the children and the teachers are amazing. The teachers and staff have always been there for our kids and our family. We are better parents because of them. Thanks to tax credits the cost has been almost nothing and my kids have had a great start to their education.

We enrolled our son at Casas last year, and have seen him bloom in such a short period of time. The teachers have nurtured him in ways that have really built his confidence. He is learning so much academically, spiritually and socially! Hi We are happy to see that his desire to know more about God has increased. The love he feels from the staff and students has helped him come out of his shell. We love Casas Christian School and would highly recommend it!

We LOVE Casas Christian School! I went there when I was a kid and now my children attend. The teachers are intentional, caring, and show the love of Jesus each day. The administration has great wisdom, discernment, and fresh ideas as they lead the school forward! Thank you Casas for pouring into my children each day!

I have been a teacher at Casas for the past 26 years and sent my children there as well. Casas is a close-knit family with superb teachers that give students a top tier education academically, emotionally, physically, but most of all, spiritually. The office staff and administrative team cannot be beat! Everyone on staff truly loves all the students and has great rapport with parents and grandparents. The academic component of the school stresses high-level instruction, differentiation, and structuring a program that best fits the needs of each child. If you are looking for a school; I recommend coming to Casas, take a tour, and find out personally why this school is one in a million!

The teachers are great. They are very dedicated to instilling Christian principles and reflecting Christ to the students they teach. It has been my awesome privelege of having my son enrolled there for over 3 years and I have seen an immense difference in him, as to when he was not attending. The impact it makes is very noticeable and I highly recommend!

SSAT and ISEE scores are one part of the total picture which most private school admissions staff review. These standardized tests reveal what you have learned in key mastery areas.
Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
