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.

Core Values

Centered in Christ

Revelation 4:11; 5:9

  • Providing a Christ-centered, God-honoring environment (Colossians 1:18)
  • Ministering as a team of board, administrators, faculty, and staff united in allegiance to Christ and the mission of a distinctively Christian education (Colossians 1:28-29)
  • Encouraging each student to develop a personal and growing relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (Colossians 2:6-7; Hebrews 10:24; 2 Thessalonians 5:14-15)

Teaching the Truth

John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16

  • Recognizing that all truth is God's truth, and that the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God (John 17:17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 1 John 5:20)
  • Integrating a biblical worldview into all areas of the curriculum and school program (Psalm 19:1-6; Proverbs 1:7; John 14:6; Romans 1:20)
  • Affirming the worth of each individual as an image-bearer of God (Genesis 1:26-27; James 3:9)
  • Developing students who hide God's Word in their hearts, discern the truth based on Scripture, and apply biblical wisdom to every part of daily life (Psalm 119:11; Proverbs 3:5-6; 1 Corinthians 2:15-16; James 2:17; 2 Peter 3:28)

Striving for Excellence

1 Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 3:23

Leading through Service

Matthew 20:28

  • Following Christ's example of service and love in our relationships with others (Mark 9:34-35; Luke 22:26)
  • Serving as Christian role models at all levels of leadership, including the board, administration, faculty, and staff, so that others may follow our examples (Matthew 5:14-16; Philippians 2:3-4)
