Their Beginnings

Central Christian School began as an early childhood program in 1957. After seeing the academic value in the education their children were receiving, parents asked the school to expand its offerings. In the 1960’s the CCS established the current program, for students aged 3-13. Ten years later, the school expanded yet again to accomodate a growing student body. In 2009 an additional building next to the main building was added to house the 5th and 6th Grade program.
