Welcome from the Head of School

Dear Prospective Parents,

A recent LifeWay Research poll found that 7 in 10 Protestants ages 18 - 30 (mainline and evangelical) who went to church regularly in high school said they quit attending church by the age of 23. I can think of no better way to reverse that trend of this moral free-fall in America than by preparing our young men and women to engage their generation for Jesus Christ.

Unlike public school and secular private schools, we can answer the question, "Why are we here?" in a very powerful way. I could read countless stories from my master's thesis at Dartmouth of men and women who greatly impacted this country because of their sense of God-given purpose in life derived from the Christian worldview they received in school. What a wonderful platform God has given us through Central Christian School to serve this community for such a time as this.

Combining traditional and innovative curriculum and teaching methods, our educational program provides a strong biblical and academic foundation for each student. However, no factor contributes more significantly to our educational program than a superior faculty.

We seek talented teachers who are inspired by our mission and who can energize students and themselves in the learning enterprise. The growth and retention of inspirational teachers who are strong Christian role models for students is an important long-term factor in realizing the school's mission and vision.

As a Christ-centered, academically challenging community, we work to instill a passion for God, a love of truth, and a zeal to serve in each student. Each student is a unique image-bearer of God, and the school models amazing diversity as it seeks to fulfill its mission to prepare students for the 21st century. 

Sincerely yours,

John A. Murray
