Vision & Values


It is the vision of Central Christian School to engage students in a quality Christ-centered education that equips and challenges them to reach their unique potential spiritually, academically, socially, and physically. Following Christ's call to excellence, CCS aspires to be an exemplary Christian school ministry characterized by innovative and engaging curriculum and teaching practices, well rounded programs, and appropriate facilities. We endeavor to foster a nurturing, mutually supportive school community of students who enthusiastically pursue learning and Christian character, parents who wholeheartedly support the school's mission, Bible believing churches who actively reinforce a biblical worldview, and qualified, caring Christian faculty and staff who sacrificially invest in the lives of students. Ultimately, CCS desires to prepare and inspire students to impact their world for Christ through a life of service to Him.
