This school is dedicated to the moral and spiritual and educational upbringing of the children in the community. They endeavor to provide the best and by doing so they bring out the best in their students.

I think the school has improved in the past few years. The new leadership taken the school to a better level. I wish it had been there when my girls were there.

CCS is a GREAT school. I highly recommend CCS if you are a parent who is committed to Christian Education. Biblical principals are woven throughout the studies and throughout the day. The staff is caring and if your family is in need they would be the first to step up and help. Where else can a staff member stop class and pray with your child or other children within the class. Check out CCS!!!!! As a parent CCS welcomes your involvement and highly encourages it.

CCS is a great school, doing some great things. My children attend CCS and I could not imagine sending them any place else. They have attended CCS since preschool. The academics at CCS are biblical based. The teachers and staff at CCS are wonderful, caring, christian people. It is a truley wonderful feeling not only having my children learn about GOD at home and church, but also at school. CCS is the ONLY pre-k to 12th grade Christian School in Columbus and the surrounding area. They have recently brought Malcolm Stalcup to CCS as the JR/SR high principal along with Amy Mathis as elementary principal/School Administrator. If you are looking for a school for your children I HIGHLY recommend CCS.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
