In the Classroom

Philosophy

classroom-smallGod loves children. He has entrusted them to parents for their fullest spiritual, intellectual, social and physical development.

The purpose of Central Christian School is to assist parents in providing children with a Christ-centered education in which the Lordship of Jesus Christ is acknowledged in every aspect of life and learning.

We believe that children are created uniquely. They are naturally inquisitive and desire to learn, but they need loving guidance and encouragement. Central Christian School offers a solid academic foundation with a combination of traditional and innovative approaches. Children will learn the importance of honesty, personal initiative, respect for authority and love for God and others.

Central Christian School provides an alternative to parents who want their children educated in a Christian atmosphere by committed Christian teachers. We seek to help each child become what he or she can be by God’s grace.

The mission of Central Christian School is to partner with families and the church by providing a Christ-centered evangelical school which challenges the intellect, strengthens the body, nurtures the spirit and shepherds the heart, so that all students may come to love Christ and grow in faith, wisdom, and knowledge.
