We've had our two at CCS 6 years (since they were school age). Excellent individual attention at the academic and spiritual level with continuous feedback. We love the ability to know the teachers in depth as well as the other classmates and their families. Colonial is helping us train, develop and point our children in the right direction and aiding us in sharpening them for future service at a very high level.

We are so blessed to have our children here at CCS! They are learning great Bible truth. My child who has a learning disability is also receiving the extra help she needs! Discipleship is truly what takes place here! We wouldn't have our children anywhere else!

I have three children who have had their education in the public school system, until with the help of vouchers they were able to begin attending CCS this year. I think one of the things I appreciate the most is that I believe that each of my children's teachers genuinely care about them and their success, and because of that there are open lines of communication between parent and teacher, something which did not exist in the public school.

My son is in pre-k at Colonial Christian. My husband and I are so thankful for this school. We heard about it by word of mouth and went to visit and immediately knew this school was a perfect fit for our family. The staff is so loving and kind. Everything we've experienced with the school and faculty is centered around Christ, which is important to us. I'm so thankful for Ms. Sharon, the preschool teacher, my son talks about her non stop. His class closes in prayer everyday. They take turns among the classmates as the prayer leader. They have a bible topic every week and it's usually centered around kindness and compassion. On top of learning bible lessons my son can now write his name. He has learned so much in such a short time. I recommend this school to anyone.

My son has attended Colonial Christian for two school years. It has helped his confidence and desire to learn tremendously. I don't see bullying or popularity an issue. Each child is treated equally and with respect. The teachers are very hands on and there to teach. We are a family and my child's best interest is always number one.

Colonial Christian School is the best school in town. I wouldn't even consider sending our son to another. They hold a high standard, but are very easy to work with. The students excel in learning to be independent and responsible. Moral is very good. Students work well together. Faculty are very approachable. Dr Suitor is a very strong and capable leader. We love Colonial!

Having 2nd generation students at CCS, we continue to be thrilled with the high caliber academics, fine arts, and spiritual education our children receive. They are taught by experienced teachers who love God and love the students. We feel so blessed to call CCS our children's school!

I have 3 children who are graduates of Colonial. Each received a solid education taught with a Biblical worldview. Each left Colonial with a strong foundation and each has excelled in college.

We are so glad that Colonial is there for our three kids. We were homeschooling and decided to send our two younger kids to regular school instead. The teachers were very helpful during that transition of our kids getting used to a regular school schedule. My oldest child went to public school first. The bullying and bad attitude of the students there was too much for him, so he came to Colonial. What a big difference for him. The students in his class were so friendly and helpful. There is no bullying at all at this school. Disrespect is not tolerated. Colonial provides a very safe and secure environment.

Our son has been attending Colonial Christian School since January 2011. He has grown exponentially during his time in the preschool and will be more than ready to start kindergarten in the fall. He is already reading some words and learning Bible stories. He is a better listener and continues to improve each week. We have been more than pleased with the program, teachers and staff at CCS.

We have 2 boys in the 5th and 6th grade who have attended Colonial Christian School since preschool. We are very pleased with the education they have received, the care and support of the teachers, and the way issues are handled biblically. The small class size allows time for individual needs and to challenge those who learn quickly. The administration is strong, aware of what is going on within the school, and takes time to know the families. There are written plans for future goals . Our boys enjoy school and learning, and are receiving and excellent education. Band, piano, and music lessons are an added bonus.

We are so thankful for the excellent education our 2 children have received at Colonial Christian School. Both of our children have attended since kindergarten and this year our oldest will graduate. We feel he is very well prepared for college as the curriculum through the years has been challenging and taught from a Biblical standpoint. Each and every teacher throughout the years has been helpful and encouraging to our children while being an excellent testimony in their own lives. We would definitely recommend Colonial Christian School!

I've been meaning to post a review for Colonial for a long time. Our kids have been going to Colonial for two years and it has been an exceptional experience. We were initially drawn to the small class sizes and Christ-centered teaching. But, what keeps us at Colonial is how loving and safe the environment feels. Our kids (PK and 2nd grades) know everyone and are warmly welcomed every day by friendly parents and teachers alike. They are challenged academically and growing spiritually as well. It's also a real plus that they can take music lessons during the day. And, we love the fact that as they get older, they will have the opportunity to participate in sports. If you are considering sending your children to a Christian school, you should definitely consider Colonial. I'm convinced it's the best value for private school in Indianapolis.

Acedemically superb! BJ curriculum is fast paced and demanding. Creates a real challenge for students and is a great preparation for the challenges they will face as adults in the market place. Teacher quality is above average. Many, but not all display a true passion for education and young people. Colonial does not offer the full range of athletic programs but that is ok with our family. We feel education is the primary purpose and Colonial students excel in the classroom. Parents must be involved with homework to help their students keep pace with the curriculum. Any other involvement is a plus for the students and faculty. Safety and discipline are outstanding and Colonial maintains very high standards. Overall, the dress code is a challenge since current styles in the stores don't fit the code but that is a small sacrifice for an outstanding education.
