Not the same school it was years ago.. I have had two children attend the school for over 13 years and the school has lost its soul. What started out as a good christian based school run by caring professions has experienced a devolution in to a very Judgmental and uncaring environment. The original staff that built the school has either moved on or has been pushed out to non-influential positions. They have been replaced by a more radical and fundamentalist brand of Christian. Needless to say Catholics, Orthodox and mainstream Protestants will find their theology distasteful and even insulting. Having said all that the academics are still above average. Class sizes are small, tuition is reasonable but their are far better schools for your child to attend.

CCS is an awesome school. The staff is caring and nurturing. The school has a strong academic program that keeps its foundation on Christian beliefs, not a world view. The middle school is especially amazing. The kids are taught and loved on in a sweet environment. I have not seen or heard about any of the bullying or clique issues found in nearby schools. The kids all seem to get along great and work together as a team, accepting and including everyone. Moving into middle school has been a non-event for my children as they entered from 5th grade. Our family has attended CCS for 4 years and plan to stay. We love the school and all that is represents. Superior academics from a Christian worldview. You will love CCS if you take a tour.

dont believe the fake reviews. Three years ago, I attended Cherokee Christian School for one semester and had enough of it already. The way the socializing went about was just ridicolous. They made me feel welcome for about two weeks, and then after that made me feel like I didnt exist for the rest of the school year! Everyone who ive asked thats gone there says the only way to be 'cool' is to go there for two or three years and then you will have friends. The hypocrisy. The teachers and staff get way into our personal life and business, and some of the rules are completely unneccessary. Also, wearing a uniform gets old quickly if its not your thing. The amount of work and some of the curriculum was alright but Bible isnt a recognized course. I came into the 2nd semester and they refused to let me take Spanish class because I didnt 'sufficiently learn enough required'. So I had to make a year of Spanish credit up in the next High School I went to. I had one teacher and one staff tell me I was doing well, then the next day they had a meeting with my mom after school saying I was 'being lazy'. The only thing Christian about this school is the chapel days on Tuesday. Dont recommend.

As a formal student of CCHS and CCS after reading these reviews I am taken back at how ignorant the parents are pertaining to the actual school. The school is full of favoritism, cliques, and useless faculty. I would NOT recommend sending any of your kids to this school, ESPECIALLY the high school. There are far better academic and athletic opportunities elsewhere. One of my fond memories of this school was being forced to pick weeds out of a dirt patch (all of the high school had to do this). With promises that the dirt patch will later become of some use, only to have weeds grow in it again which made that day of unnecessary and un-academic labor to be put to waste. I would rate the faculty as a 2/5, students are a 2/5 because they are cliquey and quite frankly at the highschool level there is an aurora around them of not wanting anything to do with this school (for good reason). The actual education is a 3/5 and the athletic program is a solid 0/5.

I started kindergarten at CCS. Elementary school was great and I loved my teachers. Middle school was great too. Then I got into high school. Many of my friends left before freshman year because they had heard bad things about the high school. I tried high school and even was in the STEM program. As the year progressed my frustration increased. The teachers were not at all helpful. Many cliques formed and I felt like I had almost zero true friends. Also the STEM classes seemed to just be regular classes, nothing special. Also the academic counselor was a joke. She never made any effort to talk to me. I even asked about dual enrollment and AP classes. I changed schools after that freshman year and I am now at another private school. The teachers are so much more helpful and the academic counselor actually helps me. Also everyone at my new school is sooo much nicer than at CCSAdditionally I will be attending KSU through dual enrollment next year which I find to be very exciting. Overall CCS was good for a bit, but I do not recommend the high school.

My daughter just started at CCS this year and is in 5th grade. Before CCS, she was attending public school and I can't tell you what a blessing this school has been to us both. As a single mom raising a daughter, I had to take a look at what type of people she had around her that influenced her life. Public school was not allowing her to become a Godly and compassionate young woman. CCS has been life altering and my daughter has really been filled with love, tenderness and compassion for others. She never comes home with anxitey or drama like she has in the past. We are SO thankful that we chose CCS......best decision I could have ever made for my child.

My family and I moved to Marietta in the Summer of 2012. We chose Cherokee Christian School because of the S.T.E.M. classes and Christian environment. So far my education has been great; I feel that I'm getting the most out of my classes and that my teachers truly know how to teach the material. Thanks to this school, I got the opportunity to go to Valdosta over the Summer for the Governor's Honors Program for Mathematics (and I was accepted). My counselor has been very helpful in my college application process, and I've already applied to Georgia Tech for early admission and plan on applying to several other colleges. I'm planning on becoming a Math major at Georgia Tech and I feel lucky to be part of such a strong Mathematics department.

I am a parent of a child at Cherokee Christian School and a teacher there as well. It is a great place to teach and work. I feel very blessed to be able to teach where my child is in such a loving atmosphere where teachers go out of their way to be sure their students are successful. My child loves CCS and her teachers have been amazing. I can not imagine her going anywhere else. She is challenged academically and loved all day long.

Cherokee Christian is an amazing school!! Our family has been a part of the CCS family for 5 years. All of the teachers and staff are so loving and caring. They help my daughters strive to not only do their best academically but spiritually as well. They are a true example of Christ's love every day! So blessed and thankful for this wonderful school!!!

I am a sophmore in high school at CCS, and I've been at the school since 3rd grade. CCS is an unbelievable school, and I am so blessed to be able to attend. I have loved going to this school ever since the day I started. Everything is taught from a Biblical perspective, and everyone there is like family. The teachers are all so enjoyable, and each one has made a big impact in my life. I've heard new students testify that it doesn't take long before you feel like part of the CCS family. We are all taught how to apply our Christian beliefs to what we are seeing and doing. We are taught about the world's past in order to help us make right choices for the future. The education I get at CCS is like none other, and I have an extensive knowledge of the Bible thanks to my many amazing teachers. There are so many courses offered, and multiple extracurricular options. When I walk through the hallways of CCHS, I feel loved, safe, and surrounded my a good group of Christian buddies. No, we're not perfect, and we have our days, but we are taught to work it out in a way that glorifies our Savior. CCS is my second home on earth and I could not give it a higher recommendation.

I am in 8th grade and have been attending this school since 1st grade. There is no way to describe what his means to me. I have grown to love everyone at the school and I don't know what I would do without them. Every teacher teaches from a Biblical perspective and cares about us so much. The teachers strive to have a loving, personal relationship with each and every one of the students in my class. The love that surrounds me at this school can only be a God-given blessing. I cannot say how much I would give to stay in CCS until my last year of high school! It is such an amazing experience and has a major impact on my life. Now that I am in middle school, there is more freedom, but that doesn't at all mean that the teachers care less about you. In fact, they care about you even more, because they want you to succeed in everything. They strive for a personal relationship with the Lord and make the subjects fun and exciting (yes, even math and physics!). I want to shout out to all of the teachers that I have had. I love you all and why you have done for me :) thanks for being there for me through thick and thin. In conclusion, I LOVE CHEROKEE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL!!!!

We knew long before we had children that we wanted a christian education for our children. When it was time to look at the closest christian schools we knew Cherokee Christian would be on our list. We are local to the area and had seen the school grow. We attended an open house and were sold. We met a couple of teachers and had plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Our children are now in the 4th and 2nd grades and we are pleased with the school. They both have only known CCS.

Cherokee Christian provides not only the Christian-based foundation that I want my child to build on, but they also have teachers and a curriculum that gives superior results, and a parent base that supports the school and the students. Every teacher is committed to working with your child one-on-one and giving individual solutions for any needs, whether it is academic, social or emotional. As an example, my son was allowed to stand during portions of the class, so he could focus, rather than fidgeting in his chair. As another example, the teacher addressed instruction with the children on treating each other the right way when those normal childhood uglies were coming out. And I am always impressed with the academic background and additional training that the teachers have and the ways they work on academic issues with my children. Finally, almost all the parents are represented at almost every function. That makes a tremendous difference. It's a great school and a great group of people!

Great school for academics and has a wonderful Christ centered atmosphere. Teachers are wonderful and truly care about the students academically and spiritually. The sports program is lacking. If you have a child that is athletic and competitive you may have to find sports else where. Would love to see the school not only expand the athletic program but invest in paid qualified coaches. Otherwise, CCS is a wonderful academic, Christ centered, affordable school that my children love!

Cherokee Christian School has been a blessing to my family. I like to say that I'm getting 3 for the price of 1 because my husband and I are learning and growing along with my little boy. They are organized, great communicators that know how to focus on academics and safety while sharing the spirit of the Lord and loving my child. I consider the choice of Cherokee Christian School to be one of only a few decisions that I've gotten right. Family members that didn't understand the need for private school can see how my little boy has grown and now fully support the choice of private school. We began in Kindergarten and I pray that we will be there until the end. Every school should have the spirit of Cherokee Christian School.

Our son started the STEM program this year (ninth grade), and it is proving to be a great fit for him. This is only his second year at CCS, but he has made some great friends. His teachers have all been excellent, caring people who have already made great investments in his life. We feel so blessed to have him at CCS.

Cherokee Christian School in Woodstock, GA is a testimony to truth in education. From K through 12, CCS remains focused and delivers on their promises, by providing a Christ-centered education, along with the highest quality education standards of any private school in the area, while partnering with parents in a family-style environment. All this, coupled with a very reasonable tuition rate, is what creates great value, confident students and happy parents. You can add small class sizes, updated systems for safety and security, great teachers and a trusting environment. CCHS students have the option to enter the unique STEM program, which prepares students for success in the all important disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math. Don't overlook the Arts & Music program (supported by The Patrons of the Arts), a growing sports program, and a modern up-to-date facility. Most of the things you might expect, but you won't find many of the negative distractions that are all too common in many school systems today. Come and take a tour of the facilities and see what CCS is all about!

My children have both attended CCS since Kindergarten. My daughter is now a freshman in CCHS, and my son is a 7th graders in our middle school. This is my 7th year teaching here at CCS. I can honestly say that I have loved our experience here, both from a parent's viewpoint, as well as a teacher's. The teachers at CCS truly love the children. I have always said that I know three things without a doubt: My children are safe. My children are loved. My children are taught the Word of God on a daily basis. Although no school is perfect, what more can you ask for your children??

3rd year CCS family, Middle School. We made an outstanding choice for our child's education with CCS. Not only does our child receive superior academics led by exceptional/caring educators, she is able to experience a Christ centered education which provides her a Biblical life and world view. Administration/leadership/educators are professional, approachable, & they genuinely care about the students. State of the art security systems & building safety features give greater peace of mind. Please visit the CCS website, academics section to view the highly impressive National Test Score comparisons. HS AP classes are abundant and the HS faculty resumes are impressive. *IF you are looking for: Premier academics with a focus on future college success; safe/caring/loving environment; leadership and educators with the highest integrity, Christian values, and genuine God and 'student first' priorities; as well as an intelligent alternative to government dictated curriculum & testing mandate priorities that can distract from effective teaching & learning then CCS is more than worth the tuition.Take a closer look at what CCS has to offer. A wise and rewarding choice for you and your child.

Cherokee Christian School has helped me grow as an individual and aided me in discovering myself. I have attended for 2 years and I have built amazing relationships with the students and staff. Before CCS I had been homeschooling, so as you can imagine the change in environment was drastic. The teachers made sure I was welcomed and helped me in every way they could. My peers were also very welcoming and supportive of me. CCS is da bomb dot com!

I cannot say enough good things about our school. My children have attended for several years and each year proves to be one of positive educational and spiritual growth. We appreciate the staff- from the administration down to the teacher assistants, we feel that everyone has my children's best interest in mind. Keeping in mind there are no 'perfect institutions' in an imperfect world, we know that the staff at CCS strive hard to create an atmosphere of strong educational opportunities alongside individual spiritual growth. We are looking forward to another great year this year at Cherokee Christian!

My family moved to the Woodstock area during the summer of 2012. After a comprehensive search, we chose Cherokee Christian as the place for my son to complete his last two years of high school. We have been very impressed with the strong leadership that Mike Lee, the Superintendent, exemplifies at CCS. CCS is a well run school offering students an excellent learning environment as well as promoting strong moral and Christian values. My son has been fortunate to have teachers who are not only very qualified in their respective areas, but are also professional and caring. In particular, the school's counselor and the head of the Math Dept, have gone above and beyond to help us with a variety of topics. Both have been very helpful to us and always seem to have the right answers. My son intends on attending either Georgia Tech or Vanderbilt next year and I feel confident that he will be more than prepared for either, thanks primarily to the education provided by CCS. We feel very fortunate to have made the decision we did and would highly recommend Cherokee Christian to any family moving to the area or any family looking to move their child to a top notch school.

I can say whole heartedly that Cherokee Christian School is wonderful. We made the switch from homeschooling our 3 children to traditional schooling with trepidation. Would the teachers be compassionate? Would my children be able to make friends? Would the influences be positive? Would the curriculum be challenging enough? What a joy it was to find Cherokee Christian! The teachers were very compassionate and spent extra time with my children to make sure the transition was smooth. The godly character of every teacher I have come into contact with is clearly evident. They were ready to help in and outside of class. My children are challenged to push towards excellence by their teachers and their friends. The students were very welcoming, good friendships formed. I did read the previous post about the lack of AP classes. I have not found this to be true. This year there are at least 13 AP classes that are offered! The STEM program in particular is very rigorous and those students are very well prepared to study at any of the Engineering and Tech colleges! Cherokee Christian School is a grace filled arena for academics, peer interaction and service to others. We are very pleased.

If you like close-minded teachers and cliquey students and parents, this is the school for you! Unfortunately, I met kinder and more welcoming students/teachers at public school. They do not offer AP courses, options for classes or teachers, or many extra extracurricular activities . I hope you choose something better for your child.

With very high-strung cliques in the students AND parents, it is by far not a "Christian" school. With the small number of classes offered, students are limited on what they can study. There are no AP classes or dual enrolling. Many of the teachers were wonderful, but not all. All of the students might seem pleasant at first, but that will change VERY quickly. Many of the students I dealt with were not even able to wipe their own backsides without their parent's help and the others were spoiled brats who had grown up extremely sheltered. There's countless different sects of Christianity. Majority of the teachers attend the same church and have their set of beliefs and that's fine, but they need to understand that majority of students don't believe exactly what they believe. For me, public school was made out by the students and teachers to be a big and scary place that was full of terrible and stupid people when in fact, I found people to be kinder and more welcoming than in the "Christian" school. I attended the school and I'm simply posting my experience and I can wholeheartedly say that I met better people and learned more at public school.

My son graduated two years ago from Cherokee Christian. I started him there in the 6th grade and his younger brother still attends. My son is now in his second year of college, pre-med, honors student with a current 3.96 GPA. Cherokee Christian gave him the skills he needed to succeed in college and he continues to flourish. The students that transferred out to their local public schools (due to financial obligations) that were friends of my son's all graduated with honors. The teachers are always there to help and are good Christian mentors. Mr. Lee is great (and Mrs. Lee too). If you are thinking about sending your child - don't hesitate.

My daughter graduated from CCS in 2008. Last Saturday we celebrated her graduation from Reinhardt University (debt free!) with a degree in Science, Spanish, and English Education. CCS prepared my daughter 100% for college She received over $80,000 in academic scholarships. She maintained a 4.0 GPA and tutored other college students. She speaks 4 languages and is headed to China to further her studies. The teachers(missionaries IMO) at CCS are amazing. My only warning is CCS is not composed of perfect, super spiritual students. If you want your child to have a fantastic education then this is your place.

CCS has been such a blessing to our family. The school has the best staff of caring, nurturing teachers and administration that makes it feel like family. The Christian based education goes much farther than even the outstanding test results will show; our son's favorite classes are Chapel and Bible. Our daughter is very excited to attend this fall as well!

I have the unique privilege to have been a parent first and teacher second at CCS. After homeschooling our daughter, we decided the best thing for her would be to go to school. We visited CCS and were impressed with the longevity and quality of their teachers. Our daughter started kindergarten and loved it from the start. She received a great academic foundation that prepared her for her coming years at CCS. I started teaching at CCS when my daughter entered first grade. I have taught in many private Christian schools, but they were nothing like CCS. The faculty has a genuine concern for the success of their students. The administration truly cares about their faculty and our families. Teaching at CCS is a joy and it is a wonderful place to minister to families. I count it a privilege to be in my fifth year at CCS!

Looking back upon the four years of high school that I spent at Cherokee Christian, I realize how fortunate I was to be able to attend such a wonderful school. Now as a freshman at Georgia Tech, I realize the education I received at CCS thoroughly prepared me for college. CCS has a curriculum that is both challenging and rewarding. Although the coursework was sometimes difficult, I was constantly given the opportunity to improve my study habits and learning skills. In fact, when I took a few college classes during my senior year at CCS, I found myself to be adequately prepared for them. This has given me a confidence in my academic foundation that has aided me greatly in my current studies at Georgia Tech. I can honestly say that this school has been faithful to their promise of growing students both academically and spiritually.

After moving to Roswell from Florida, we became involved in the public school system. We had heard how great Cobb County schools were, but after 6 months of less than pleasurable experiences, we realized that if we left our children there, the childlike innocence would be lost. Unfortunately, sometimes it takes going through these cicumstances for one to see the reality of our public schools and the stark contrast that a school like Cherokee Christian offers. All three of our children are now at CCS. It has been a huge blessing and we thank God for it everyday because based on our experience, there is no comparison. We continue to recommend families to look into Cherokee Christian Schools.

When we first applied to CCS for our children six years ago, it was a step in faith...not a leap of faith. We knew it was the right 'step' for our children and our family. Over the past six years, we have been overjoyed to see how our children are growing both academically and spiritually. We have also witnessed the progression of their classmates. I watch all the children in carpool both morning and afternoon. I see them happy, very happy to be at school, to see their friends and teachers, to be at CCS. When they leave, they all glow...their smiles and giggles are irreplaceable. I notice not only the abilities of the staff, their knowledge, personalities, diligence, patience, but I also look for the affect it has on all of the children. Our family couldn't be more pleased. We trust Cherokee Christian Schools with our most important investment...our children.

I am grateful to teach at Cherokee Christian. I can speak of truths and failings that I have experienced during my Christian life without worrying about being PC which allows me to be myself and be an effective teacher. Our administration is extremely supportive, our staff has an extraordinarily positive chemistry, our families are involved in their children s academics, and the Lord continues to bless our school. Graduates who go onto college often come back and tell us how well prepared they were. And even the few who do not make it to college directly tell us how glad they are to have been at our school. It has been a great privilege to come along side our parents as they seek to prepare their children for life beyond high school. Our teachers look forward to having more families dedicated to Christian education to join our community at Cherokee Christian.

We have two daughters at Cherokee Christian and it is a wonderful school! The administration, teachers, and staff all have a servants heart. The curriculum is challenging and we know our girls are getting a terrific education that will prepare them for the future. Most importantly though, you can feel the Spirit of the Lord at work within the school. It is so wonderful to know that the school is partnering with us in the spiritual and academic growth of our children! My husband and I have grown too in our knowledge and faith through books, conferences and classes offered at the school. Our whole family has been so blessed by this school!!

My children have been students at the Cherokee Christian for eight years, and they love it. The school has been a valuable partner with me in raising my kids to understand a Godly perspective of His creation. While I struggle as a parent with ideas about what is best for my kids, CCS has stayed the course focusing on the Lord s call to bring up my children according to His Word. My children enjoy a great relationship with their teachers, challenging academics, deep friendships, and a Christ-centered community. I think that any true Christian who wants to allow their children to be instructed properly not like the please-anyone-who-is-possibly-offended government sees fit would be blessed to have their children at Cherokee Christian.

In 2002, we were led to enroll our eldest son in Kindergarten at CCA. We had no concept of how it would impact our families lives. The school atmosphere has not only taught our son to be a faith filled, well educated young man, it has been a faith lifting experience for our entire family. We continue to attend CCA with 3 children enrolled. It is a blessing to know they are nourished mind, body and soul every single day!!!

Our oldest daughter started at Cherokee Christian in the First grade, she is now finishing up Fourth. Our son started CCS this year for Kindergarten, and our youngest daughter will start Kindergarten there next year. It is the best money we spend. Not only does this school consistantly make it a goal to honor God, but they are academically aggressive, as well. Even at the Kindergarten level, students are given a framework of good study habits (nightly homework) to build upon throughout the course of their academic career. Two and a half years ago we even downsized ourselves home-wise in order to get closer to the school, while simultaneously ensuring that we could continue to pay tuition for all of our children as the years progressed. It was the best move we ever made. We love our new smaller home and the bright future for our children.

Not only can't I say enough about how good a school this is, but I can't say enough about what a great God I have for bringing my family to this school. It's never going to be perfect, but I have never, in my 15 years of living with and working with Christian ministries, seen a school where the staff and faculty are all there to give of their time, energy and talents to help my children excel both academically and in their lives. The administration has time for us, the teachers know my daughters almost as well as I do, and my girls have never had such excellence in academics. It think I know why... because God is put first in this school, and when He is, He is honored and glorified by the results of the test scores.

Our son has been at Cherokee Christian for 7 years and our daughter for 4 years. In those years, we (both individually and as a family) have all grown closer to God and have solidified our belief in Jesus as our Savior. We are thrilled with both the spiritual focus in all the classes and the academic rigor required of the students. The school s motto speaks of edifying the whole child; based on our experiences, CCS is by far exceeding their set standards. The teachers truly are dedicated to the well being of each student. Activities including drama, sports, and International Night offer abundant opportunities for students. Compared with other schools in the area, class sizes are small with the lower grades having a Teacher Assistant for all the classes. We are appreciative of the ample security and technology that the administration has employed. Both of our kids say they would not want to go anywhere else. Neither would we!

Our daughter attended this school for four years before a buisness oppurtunity caused us to move. While we throughly enjoyed the sense of religion that radiated from CCS, we found that when our daughter began public school, she was severly behind in almost all her academic subjects. At CCS, she had been an A student, and at her new school, she had a report card of C's and D's. I feel that the academics were far to relaxed, and that now our daughter will pay the price later in life.

What an awesome experience we've had thus far with our First grader! The Holy Spirit leads in this school. We are blessed that Cherokee Christian teaches a Christian WORLD VIEW--our 7 year old knows how to deal with things of the world through a 'God-filter' and it is awesome to watch him DAILY using the skills he has been taught at Cherokee Christian to make positive, Holy Spirit-led decisions. We are so excited for our Preschooler to start Kindergarten at CCS in August to further our family's journey through God's plan for our lives! If you are looking for a solid Christian world view, backed by a strong academic program, and staffed by teachers and administrators that truly love the Lord as well as the children, you have found what you are looking for at CCS.

When we knew we were moving to the north Atlanta area, we immediately started the search for a school; solid theology, strong academics, and a K-12 school that knew who it was and who it wanted to be were our main criteria. We looked at CCS along with many others. Between the CCS website, talking to school personnel, and visiting in person, we decided to give CCS a try. That decision has turned out to be the right one. Now that we've been at CCS a while, we can say that it is theologically sound, academically excellent, and has a vision for how to serve the greater Woodstock area as time goes by. CCS is growing and we expect that as it grows, even broader academic, sports, and arts opportunities will abound. We are glad that are kids are at CCS.

Why choose Cherokee Christian School ? CCS is a school you can feel proud of. Your child learns what God's word teaches us and that is to put Him first. It is a school where children are academically challenged by loving and devoted Christian teachers and staff. The administration works together to ensure your child is receiving the best Christian education possible. We are proud to say that this is our 6th year at CCS. Come see for yourself how God is working at CCS. The first thing you will notice is the joy expressed on both the students and faculties faces. It is definitely a representation of God's true love for us. We feel blessed to be given the opportunity to send our daughter to CCS.

I am a 08 graduate from Cherokee Christain and i have to say in the 4 years of me being there is was the best thing that my parents has done for me. The teachers took the time for the students and best of all shared to us about Jesus Christ. I urge any student or parent who is considering this school to take this chance and allow your student to be taught the right things. This school will very much prepare you for college and for other things that you will encounter in life. Thank you Cherokee Christia. -Justin 'remington' hyde

Cherokee Christian School has been an amazing experience for my child. This is our fourth year at the school and we couldn't be happier with her progress. She absolutely loves going to school each day. We feel so fortunate to be a part of such a Christ honoring environment, with the same values that we teach at home.

Awesome school! This is our 1st year at CCS and we can't sing praises loud enough at how please we are at the education. Our kids attended Catholic schools for many years out of state. All along we had thought they were getting a religious education until we came to CCS. There's no comparison. We love the fact that God is present in their curriculum. The curriculum, at times, can be tough, especially in the upper grades, but the teachers are patient and notify parents immediately if there are any problems. We love the fact that the teachers in High School (especially for boys) are true mentors. We see a maturity in our High Schooler in just the few months he's been at CCS. Elementary grades are nurturing and like a family. Wonderful school. We highly recommend it. Well worth it!

What a wonderful place to have your children educated!!! The teachers as well as the administration truly love what they are doing and it shows in all aspects of the school. The loving and caring atmosphere as well as the importance of developing a Christian worldview through education are the reasons we are so pleased to have our children attending. The curriculum is challenging as well and each child is encouraged to step up and be the best they can be! Cherokee Christian is truly an awesome school!!! Cheryl Ballard Marietta, GA

Our son is in full-day Kindergarten at Cherokee Christian and we couldn't be happier. The Christ-centered education program includes weekly memory verses from the Bible. They offer an advanced reading program in their kindergarten program which we are very pleased with and have even gotten creative with additional math cirriculum to ensure our son is challenged. One of the things we enjoy most is the flexibility to join our son for lunch. Since my husband and I both work full-time, this has provided each of us with a means to be connected to our son at school. We would like to see Spanish added to the cirriculum for kindergarten. I believe it picks up in 1st grade. The after school growth-care program is also outstanding. Our son thoroughly enjoys the interaction with students from some of the other classes. We will definitely be back for 1st grade!

Our daughter is a second grader at CCS. We had many concerns about not only her education but also the environment she was in during her first two years at a local government school. We are thrilled not only with what our daughter is learning at CCS but also the ways in which she is learning. We can honestly say that CCS has been a God send and an absolute blessing. As Christian parents, we always want to be consistent with regard to Truth and God's Word. This is paramount at CCS. We are thrilled with not only the Christ centered approach at CCS but also with the academic excellence that is put forth. Our daughter is being challenged both spiritually and academically like never before. And to our delight, is meeting these challenges beautifully. Jason & Kam Roberts

Our child has been attending Cherokee Christian School 8 years. The academic programs at Cherokee Christian School are far above expectations. The results for the Standardized tests reveal this. The Musci, Art and Sports programs are great. The children have to excel in Academics to play in sports. My wife and I are very involved in volunteering at the school. We find great joy in the Lord's work to expand his Kingdom at Cherokee Christian School.

We are blessed to have the opportunity to send our children to Cherokee Christian School. We have been very pleased with the spiritual and academic growth of our children while attending the school. CCS provides an authentic Christ-centered environment and an academically excellent education. The distance we drive and the tuition we pay each month is worth every mile and every penny. We hope to continue being a part of the CCS family for many years to come.

We are parents like most who love and want the very best for our children. During a different time, we received excellent educations in public schools and college. We mistakenly assumed and expected educational quality in our local high school. Our youngest son became essentially lost in the shuffle of public education, and suffered a continual bombardment of worldly distractions. His first weeks at Cherokee Christian School were a complete surprise to us. His progress over the next year astounded us. To witness the professionals of CCS nurture the whole child, is to view a miracle in the making. Our hope is for other parents to have the prayers for their children answered as we have! This is more than a school; this is an exceptional place, with exceptional people, growing leaders to further God's Kingdom for tomorrow. Make whatever sacrifice you must, our children are worth it!

Cherokee Christian School has been an answered prayer for our family. Our children have attended CCS since Kindergarten and are currently in Elementary grades. If your priorities for your children s education include: * Building and protecting your child s faith in Christ * Maintaining structure and standards in the classroom * Knowing that your child is safe and secure while at school * Your child is cared for and loved by committed teachers and staff * To receive an excellent education that puts them ahead of the curve If these are your priorities, then Cherokee Christian is the absolute best school in the area. We are grateful for the outstanding leadership, teachers, and staff at CCS. Last but not least, both of our children LOVE attending school here!

Cherokee Christian School has been an incredible blessing to us for eight years. Since glorifying our precious Lord is the primary focus in our family, a Christ-centered education is the only choice. The administration, faculty and staff work tirelessly to provide the students with a quality education in a loving, safe environment. As parent volunteers, it is a privilege to work along side other Christian parents to further His kingdom.

Our child has been at Cherokee Christian for six years and we could not be happier. The students are given an excellent education, as well as learning to glorify God in all they do. It has truly been a blessing and privilege to be a part of CCS over the last six years. I know first hand that every student has plenty of time to use the restroom. Anyone that has spent anytime with children should know that if you let one child up in the middle of a lesson you will have 5-6 more that want to do the same. I must say that I have experienced my child needing to stop to use the restroom after school but it was not because the opportunity was not given during the day.

We had an awful experience with Cherokee Christian school. The school is very religious. If you place an extremely high value on on God first and academics second, you will be pleased. For us, it just didn't work. The school is also very strict with the children. Rules are great, but taken to an extreme they are not. For example, our first grade daughter could only go to the bathroom when allowed by the teacher. She would come home begging to stop some place just to go to the bathroom. This school is great for the right families, but proceed with caution and be sure your philosophies match those of the school. There is no flexibility on the schools part.

I am very pleased with the education my son and daughter are receiving at Cherokee Christian. I am pleased with the overall atmosphere of the school and the eagerness of the staff to respond to me when I have questions. The Bible classes are outstanding and the teachers truly care about each student.

The quality of the overall education is outstanding! The teachers take an interest in each student, and thoroughly explain each subject and assign the right amount (sometimes challenging) of homework. I work in the education field and I definitely see a high level of excellence in the students, which of course is impacted by the qualified teachers. An important feature of a well rounded education is the music, arts, sports, and other extracurrricular activities the school provides, with again the focus on the student's development rather than going through the motion or competitiveness. Parent involvement is at a high level, just look at International Night, Cub Scout Programs, Cherokee Chase 5k race, and more. Overall, it is the best school for an education for your child, and it also has its foundation based on Christianity and Jesus Christ.

Our older daughter received a number of college scholarships. Our younger daughter, still a student, has grown dramatically and has made many friends. The school has been instrumental in this.
