Coon Rapids Christian School

Coon Rapids Christian School was organized in 1977 to assist parents in their God-given responsibility to train up their children in the way they should go.
We define Christian Education as the life-long, Bible-based Christ-centered process by which individuals are led to Christ for salvation, instilled with Christ-like character, and equipped to serve Christ.
It is our mission to complement the home by reinforcing the teachings of the home such as patriotism, respect for authority, hard work, love for God, and discipline; to build Christian character (Christ likeness); to prepare each student to serve God whether they choose to become a preacher, lawyer, doctor, teacher, or part of a business team.
It is more important to learn how to live than to just make a living; to teach self-discipline by training them to be consistent, appreciative, responsible, and through; to teach that all of life is sacred.
Everything the student does is to be for the glory of God; and to develop the whole child.
Our program is designed to produce intellectual, physical, spiritual, and social growth in each student.

I went to this school for 9 years and had a good education with many great memories; the teachers have a passion for teaching and are superb at what they do. If I had a chance, I would recommend this school to anyone who was interested in a good private school.

Our children have been attending Coon Rapids Christian School 8 and 9 years. We are very pleased with the education they have received. The school is always willing to work with the family. Not only do they receive a good education also good values. Our children are brown as my son says but at this school it doesn't matter what nationality you are, everyone is treated the same. Our children are at or above their grade level, they receive extra help when needed. The teacher is very gifted with many years of experience and very kind. They also have regular volunteers to give additional help.
