Why Christ Community School?
Our school ends in 6th grade, and as you know, the youngest years of education are foundational to a child’s development. As parents, we all want the best for our young ones, so this brings us to ask: how can we provide the highest quality foundational experience for them?
When high school is removed from a youth-specific environment, the focus and resources are crafted specifically for younger students, and their growth becomes the focal point of the school. We take a wholesome approach to education that covers their spiritual, intellectual, academic, and individual needs. Spirituality is an invaluable component to childhood surroundings as they are particularly impressionable from the ages of 18 months – 13 years. While their interests and identities are still forming, at our school they are implored to step up and become role models, rather than looking to high-school age counterparts to take the lead.
Our Guiding Principles
Our mission is to provide a superior education in a warm, caring atmosphere that will equip students to serve and lead in Christ. The purpose of Christ Community School is to provide a traditional academic education integrated with the Christian worldview in such a way that:
God may be glorified and His Son, Jesus Christ, may be made known and accepted as the only way to eternal life, through the power and working of His Holy Spirit,
That all activities of the school through its students, faculty, staff, parents, supporters, and Board of Directors will model God’s standards for each of our lives, namely: To do what is just; To show constant love; and to live in humble fellowship with our God. (Micah 6:8)
Statement of Faith
These statements of faith are acknowledged and held in agreement by all associated with Christ Community School:
We believe that the Bible is the only inspired written word of God and is inerrant by His design; that God is all powerful and the Creator of heaven and earth – in a triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that Jesus is the Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, that Jesus led a sinless life, and that His death on the cross and resurrection paid the penalty for sin and purchased salvation for all who acknowledge Him as Lord and Savior.
Ephesians 2:8-9 that “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith….not by works.”
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer at the moment of spiritual rebirth and that the Holy Spirit unifies us and enables us as believers to accomplish the will of God; and that Jesus Christ will literally return to this Earth to claim His own and that unbelievers will be eternally separated from God.

The Board is a group of representatives who meet to determine the overall direction of the school. Serving voluntarily, the group is comprised of parents, family and faculty who are members of the community with a variety of backgrounds, knowledge and experience all sharing a vested interest in the school and its ultimate success. The Board believes that each child has the capability to succeed and that is is the board’s job to ensure that success.
