Few investments have more potential than your children's education. The way they see the world, the way they approach life, and the depth of their character are all influenced by education. The choice of where and how to educate your children can be challenging and complicated. Some parents value a larger athletic program over Christian education.
CCS integrates subjects like literature, history, language, art, math, and science. For education to be effective, it must go beyond conveying fact. Truly effective education cultivates thinking and articulate students who are able to develop facts into arguments and convey those arguments clearly and persuasively.
There is no greater task for education than to teach students how to learn. Beyond subject matter, quality education develops those skills that are essential in higher education and throughout life - independent scholarship, critical thinking, logical analysis, and a love for learning.
A Love For Learning
We believe that education is inherently enjoyable for children and that learning, hard work, and fun are not mutually exclusive. Learning should be a joyful endeavor but one that presents a challenge.
CCS educated students will not distinguish between "God's creation" and "science"; between "God's order" and "mathematics"; or between "Church history" and "world history." Throughout the curriculum, an inseparable association exists between "subject-matter" and "spiritual matters."
Conventional education operates on the philosophy that education is neutral - that it merely conveys fact and that facts do not require a spiritual context. We believe that facts, whether scientific, mathematical, historical, or otherwise, can only represent truth if they are taught in the context of a Christian worldview. There is no neutrality. For this reason, we base our curriculum on biblical truth to provide an academically rigorous education.

Our Educational Principles
God Father, Son, and Holy Spirit reveals Himself in Scripture and in creation. Without Him life is meaningless and education is incomplete. Education is the process wherein a child is taught to know the truth of God, to apply that truth to all of life, and to evaluate life by that truth.
Responsibility for education rests upon parents. They may delegate a part of this responsibility to schools to carry forward their God-given task. Teaching is a calling for those equipped by the Lord for this work and who evidence a love for children and a mastery of their subject.
Academic excellence glorifies God. He has commanded us to love Him with our minds and has given us this world for our dominion.
Education should challenge students intellectually and make use of the best curriculum and methods in the study of every subject.
