In our 62nd year, God has strengthened and broadened Central’s impact as we currently educate 240 students from 45 different zip codes and 69 churches. A 2016 National Blue Ribbon School, Central is widely identified as an academic competitor and has demonstrated a commitment to providing research-validated best practices within – not in spite of – a nurturing, gospel-centered community.
We find ourselves at the intersection of faith, academics, and diversity. Unapologetically Christian and academically vigorous, we welcome and educate a richly diverse group of students. Our diversity is evidenced in various racial backgrounds, socio-economic groups, and the St. Louis neighborhoods our families call home. We're committed to meeting the academic needs of a broad range of learners, so our Learning Center offers both a gifted enrichment program and academic support.
We hold our accreditation through AdvancED
and are also members of the Council on Educational Standards and Accountability (CESA
), Educational Records Bureau (ERB
), Independent Schools of St. Louis (ISSL
), and the Christian School Association of St. Louis (CSASL
While we have been thoughtful and diligent in our efforts to plant seeds of meaningful improvement in our school, we humbly recognize that God has sustained us and equipped us to thrive. We believe the Lord has raised up this place to educate a uniquely diverse group of students equitably, with purposeful excellence, to prepare them to engage a changing world for Jesus Christ.
