I have two children who have been attending county christian school for the past 7 years! My children have had the best of the best! There is no other school they would like to go rather than this school! The learning environment is great and the teachers have been wonderful! The principal loves the children and cares so much about the staff! Highly recommend!

I have had the privilege and honor of working nearly 36 years as a Public and now a Private/Christian school teacher. CCS is a blessing from God. Academically it consists of phenomenal teachers and administrators. Athletically it allows students to compete on organized school teams that have experienced great success while learning and displaying the importance of Godly virtues. Facility wise, considering the Computer lab, Science lab, Gymnasium, etc. it is on par with any and all. Most importantly, each and every day at CCS are Holy Spirit led and directed days filled with students being taught the importance of faith and obedience and the relevance of their faith as it bears witness to Christ. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CCS to any student and/or parent as whatever goodness is being prioritized, one will find it wrapped in Godliness at CCS.

CCS is a wonderful school. Our kids are in elementary right now but have been at CCS since they were three yrs old. We love all the caring teachers that give 100% to each child. Not only do they get a great education, they also get to learn about Jesus. My kids also love the extended day program lead by Mrs. Adams. There is no other place I'd rather have my kids.

County Christian School is a wonderful school where your children are loved, nurtured, and educated by administration, teachers, and staff who love the Lord and desire to see their students know and experience His love also. Having been involved with CCS for fourteen years as either a parent, a teacher, or an enthusiastic supporter, I have witnessed (and continue to witness) how much the students are cared for and how dedicated and exceptional the teachers and all-level principal are. If you are looking for great academics, smaller classes, character development, plenty of "extras", and most importantly, Christ-centered, Biblically-integrated teaching, then County Christian School is the place to be!

County Christian School focuses on the whole child: character development, academic excellence and health & wellness. CCS is a place where Spiritual Growth & Development meets Academic Excellence. As a parent living in Loudoun County, my children have access to many good schools. However, we chose CCS for the following reasons: 1. Academic Excellence: Accelerated program which is a full year ahead of public schools; Technology enhanced learning facility; Arts in Education, International Studies - SEV approved school; University of Richmond and Global Academics Comprehensive IT Curriculum and much more. 2. Character/Leadership Development: Emphasis and recognition placed on character development, student leadership and community service; students are encouraged to share and have compassion for others. Over nine (9) student life clubs. 3. Health & Wellness: Dedicated Spiritual Life and Sports Director, multiple championships including NVICS Boys Basketball Championship, large variety of sports and clubs including a golf club. The school has shown it's true commitment to health by investing in a "Healthy" vending machine.

My school is a blessed place to teach. The program provides the best balance between age appropriate developmental practice and structured academic training. The programming is comprehensive and there are many opportunities for teachers and students to express their creativity and skill development through special programming and daily practice in the classroom. The administration is supportive to teachers and parents alike and creates a warm and nurturing work environment for all.

My son attended this school and CCS is far more than blocks and cement. It is the people that make the difference. We just sense the care when we walk in, because it is so strong. The principal Marie Barker and all the teachers are amazing. The students and the Christian part of the school has a very high focus without compromise for the acedemics. This school changes lives, not only of the students that attend but for us the parents as well. Every area of this school far exceeded our expectations of what we thought and think a Christian school is and what they provide. We would highy recommend County Christian School to anyone. If you dont look into this school, your missing out.

County Christian School is on the journey from good to great with one of the top level principals in private education. Academics, athletic programs and spiritual formation are accomplished with a highly educated, gifted and loving staff and the results are seen in the children's character, test results and achievements.

County Christian school (Ashburn, Va) is a wonderful, small Christ-centered school that combines teaching the Word of God with challenging academic activities that are attractive to young minds. The school is conveniently located at the corner of Loudoun County Parkway and Waxpool, close to Sterling, Brambleton and the Broadlands. Everyday we strive to provide our students with the love and nurturing they need in order to create a love of learning that will last a lifetime. We challenge young minds with activities they enjoy and learn from. I work hard to make sure that everyday is a new and enriching adventure that will develop into a love of God and school. We work with young children and teens to develop a leadership mindset: how to behave well; how to love each other; how to respect the authority of our parents and our teachers; how to be good citizens; how to set an example for others. CCS has an excellent reputation and our school is in high demand. We love our community and our children. If you are looking for a great private school, try us out.

CCS is a great place to learn about God and to get ready for high school. My son attended for 6 years and loved it! I recommend the school for the caring teachers and great facilities; gym, science lab, computer lab, large classrooms with smart boards and library. CCS was a blessing to our family.

I am staff member who is starting her 10th year. I love walking through the doors in the early morning. I am the school receptionist and I have watched our Principal, Marie Barker greet every family and child that walks in for school every morning. She is always available if a parent has a question or concern. It is nice to work at a school where God is present in all that is done and taught here. The teachers here are by far the "Best". I am also a Grandmother who is excited to have her Grandson in summer camp this summer. He is going to have a wonderful experience.

Since 1980 CCS has been challenging minds and building character. County Christian School is accredited by ACSI and the teachers and administrators are certified educators. CCS strives to have a positive influence on our world by developing students whose actions authentically reveal the character of Christ by partnering with families to spiritually, academically, physically, and socially educate their children in a program of intentional excellence. Luke 2:52

A lot of changes have made this a great school. Their class sizes are now restricted to 24 kids, max - some have less. There is a new Administrator who has done a GREAT job bringing the students, parents, and teachers together like never before. The computer lab was completely rebuilt, etc. I heard they are starting to deploy some smart boards this spring and next year, so I'm sold on sending my kids there next year. Best Christian school in the area, IMHO.

The class sizes are too big for a private school. In addition, the school took all the precautionary measures to meet the requirements to receive their ACSI accreditation. Now that they are fully accredited by the ACSI they have slighted the students with certain course material. For example, the Spanish class went from meeting twice a week when they were going through the accreditation process to once a week this past school year when the accreditation process was complete.

This was a great school when it was just Christian Fellowship. The academics are still good, but not all children are treated equally. The current principal and teachers need cultural awareness training and the class sizes are too big. Some of the classes actually have a higher student/teacher ratio than the public schools.

My daughter goes to this school. We have tried couple of other schools and we love CFFS. Teachers are wonderful and the director is amazing. I would definitely send our son too.

HIgh school academics are far behind what is being taught in public schools and other Christian schools. Pre school is wonderful.

We have been at CFFS for two years now. It has been a very good experience. The change of Principals this past year was a good thing. The academics are advanced and seem well ahead of the public schools. The teachers that we have had have been lovely Godly women. We are currently enrolled for the Fall. Like any school, being active is the key to understanding the environment and the culture.

This school is a high-stress environment for children, parents and teachers alike. Our children have only been at the school for one year, and we have been disappointed in the changes we see in our children's attitude towards school and in their own self-image. It is hard to put a finger on exactly what is wrong in the school, because I like and respect every individual teacher and administrator I know. There is something endemic in the system of the school that needs to be rooted out. My children have not been bullied, but there have been serious language and behavior issues from other children, etc. that should not even be present in a Christian School. I think academically it is fine, but the class size is big and the social environment is not always healthy.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
