Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you require that I, as a parent, be a member of a church?
No.  We do not require a church membership.  However, we do require that one parent be a professing Christian and attends a Bible believing church.  We ask that you agree to follow the rules and guidelines of our school and have your child agree to its teachings and authority.  Parents are asked to read and sign our Educational Philosophy, CCS Statement of Beliefs & Objectives, & Statement on Marriage, Gender & Sexuality

Q: What curriculum do you use?
While we do not use any one publisher, we have a variety of publishers that we use.  Our Bible curriculum is purchased through Christian Schools International, that said, we also carefully select resources that will equip our students in any given subject area.   Our teachers, who have a solid Biblical worldview, teach all curriculum from a Christian perspective.

Q: How many students per class?
We have an average of 10:1 per classroom.  Combination classes are larger but don’t exceed 20 students per room.

As general wear, not at this time.  Students in the middle school areas do wear “uniforms” for physical education.

We always encourage parents to be involved, and try to offer many opportunities for service. We do not, however, require service hours.
