Community Christian School's mission is to provide Biblically-centered quality education for children, providing a strong foundation to equip students to serve God, their families, and their communities as worthy ambassadors for Christ.


We are proud of the excellence that is encouraged and that our students demonstrate every day in the classroom. Our students participate in the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments each year. In 2020, 75% of our students Met or Exceeded expectations in Math and 89% Met or Exceeded expectations in Reading. 


All of the teachers at CCS are certified and share over 140 years of teaching experience. We currently have two teachers on staff who have earned Master's Degrees and another is in a Graduate program.


Our tight-knit team of teachers are in constant communication about expectations and in the sharing of ideas. The academic growth of our students is a high priority at CCS and parents are partners in daily education.
