Calumet Christian School (CCS) emphasizes knowledge, character, and community. The mission of our pre-kindergarten through eighth grade program is to prepare students for high school and beyond by developing in them a solid academic, spiritual, and relational foundation. We envision the graduates of our school playing an influential role in their schools, churches, and communities.

CHARACTER & SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

  • CCS emphasizes the importance of living, learning, and growing in a community. Students learn how to accept one another based on God’s grace, which emphasizes responsibility and selflessness in relationships.
