“A school has a purpose: preparing children for the future. At CCS, that means more than our outstanding academics. As a Christian community, we’re committed to equipping students to answer the question, ‘How now shall I live?’ with a Christ-centered worldview that isn’t just a matter of theory, but rather something students K-12 put into practice.  I’m grateful to be a part of that.”
