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.

CCS emphasizes the development of godly character in a grace-based, relational environment.
Teachers partner with parents in the shared goal of helping students develop internally controlled behavior based on biblical truth and an understanding of God’s love and forgiveness.
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.
Teachers endeavor to model sacrificial love: they pray with students, encourage students, and impart loving discipline.
When parents and schools work together in a community with a shared vision, children are far more likely to prosper academically, spiritually, and relationally.
