Contra Costa Christian School

Our school was found in 1978 as a high school and has expanded to serve preschool through high school students. Our mission is still the same, "Preparing the Next Generation" and we do this by providing a caring environment where students can achieve academic excellence and growth in their faith. We have a robust art department, offering performing and visual arts to all grades from K-12.
All students take music and music appreciation plus we offer band, choir and drama for the older kids.
We have a designated art teacher for all grades and we have ceramics and digital art as well. Sports teams run year-round, including but not limited to, men`s and women`s basketball, men`s and women`s volleyball, soccer, cross country, softball, flag football and more! Our elite coaches help each athlete perform at the top of their game. We want our students to reach their full potential, so we don`t limit the number of Advanced Placement courses they can take in high school.
Our caring teachers and smaller class sizes ensure all students have the opportunity to do their best and it shows. Our graduates have been accepted to some of the most prestigious schools in the country including NYU, UC Berkeley, Dartmouth, UCLA and Carnegie Mellon University.
We are a distinctly Christian learning community. Beyond our commitment to the highest academic standards, teachers and students engage relationally to discover God's purpose for this world and our distinctive role in it.
We incorporate biblical truth in all our activities so that students will grow in wisdom and discernment. We are a fully tuition funded school, only using fundraisers to make improvements to our campus and expand our programs.

We have had an amazing experience at CCC Pre-K. The teachers are kind, attentive, and include parents as much as possible. At pick up, they take time to update on the day. The campus is well kept and the front office is always helpful.
