EDUCATIONAL VALUES & GOALS

THIS IS OUR PHILOSOPHY.

Community Christian School is an interdenominational body of believers. Our relationships with one another, as well as the world around us, will be characterized by love, truth, and grace. As a school, we understand that we are stronger together, and we will strive to preserve our unity in Christ. Welcome home. 

Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. It is our mission and responsibility as parents and teachers to help our children to seek, love, obey and proclaim Him. We are unwavering in our commitment to the Truth as revealed in the Holy Bible. We resolve to instill into our students Christian virtues such as self-control, integrity, responsibility, respect, and perseverance that will help them to mature in their faith walk.

We believe education is a critical foundation consisting of two primary components: virtue and knowledge. We will seek to provide our students with wisdom through a well-rounded, rigorous, Biblically-based curriculum that will help them identify their strengths, and prepare them to be successful in their pursuits at CCS and beyond.

We believe the entire process of education is seen as a means used by the Holy Spirit to bring the student into fellowship with God, to develop a Christian mind in him, and to train him in godly living, so that he can fulfill God's total purpose for his life personally and vocationally. He must be taught the Bible and come to know God and His nature, learning to see all truth as God's truth. All learning should center around Christian values integrated with and interpreted by God's Word. In the focus of the Christian faith, CCS utilizes all of man's being as a study of God's revelation so that intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development is given balance, unity, and direction.

"EDUCATING THE HEART AND MIND."
