God delivered me from a horrible situation from another school and opened the door for me at Colonial Christian School via a sister in Christ. Her children attends Colonial. To this day, I think about God's grace by placing me in an awesome Christian environment. The staff has helped me to start the healing process through their kindness, love, patience, but most of all, the spirit of Jesus Christ living in them. I have worked in many Christian and so called Christian schools. No school is perfect in every area, but I say this with the utmost care, Colonial Christian School administrative body have the purposes of God as their priority and the spiritual and academic growth of their students at heart.

Training students for life is their motto and they are dedicated to it. At CCS it is more than just the grades. There is character, friendship, godliness, discipline, sports and more.
