Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Beginning in K4, students are challenged by well-designed lessons and learning activities that lead them into making application of their knew knowledge and skills. All of the curriculum is founded in a Biblically-based worldview. As students progress from grade level to grade level, their learning experiences are further enriched allowing for more opportunities to continually develop a well-rounded core knowledge and spiritual base.

Parent involvement details At CCS, we invite parent involvement every hour of every day! Our goal is to support the entire family, and there is no better way to do that than by working right alongside our parents.
Approach to addressing and preventing bullying CCS takes a proactive approach to all discipline areas. We desire to prevent incidents rather than react to them. During weekly chapel sessions, we work to provide a foundation of support and kindness, and we consistently reiterate this in classrooms and in extra-curricular activities.
