We could not have selected a better school to ground our children academically, socially and spiritually. NO school is perfect, but TCS comes close! Teachers love their students, students love their teachers; administration is supportive of both! Take a look and see what makes TCS special!

Our daughter is thriving at The Christ School! The teachers are amazing. The loving Christian atmosphere, challenging academics, as well as leadership, public speaking and service opportunities have helped our child be a confident leader. There are many extracurricular activities to choose from so the students can explore interests and discover new passions. We highly recommend The Christ School!

I love this school. The academics are wonderful and challenging. The teachers are knowledgeable and will respond back to you quickly. The extracurricular activities are good. The academic is second to one. We just love TCS. Our daughters are now so prepared when it comes to public speaking and have excelled so well in math and science.

The K-8 foundation our children received at The Christ School is bar-none. They were extremely well prepared for high school, rocked college and are now onto careers in medicine and law. Their foundation was set on Biblical principles that taught them who they are and whose they are. If you are thinking about The Christ School for your family ... Stop thinking and apply!
