Colonial Christian School has been serving the children of the Homestead community since 1970.
Our school currently serves 310+ children in grades K3 to 12 and offers them a distinctly Christian education.
We begin our day with prayer and Bible study, and have a weekly chapel.
Our educational approach is truly comprehensive, as we address the spiritual, academic, physical, and social needs of our students.
Our goal is to partner with families to meet their children's educational needs at every stage of development.
A dedicated staff of 38 adults serves our students.
Our parents are extremely involved in supporting the school.

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.
