Welcome to Central

Dear families,

Thank you for your interest in Central Christian School.  As a current Central parent, I know choosing a school where your child will thrive is an immense decision.  Schools, especially in the formative years in which Central serves, are places where minds are educated but also where hearts and character are shaped. Seeds planted in these early years will grow into guiding traits as children grow into young adults and lifelong learners. Though these years pass quickly, their impact is deep and the schools we choose become major contributors to the growth  of this next generation.

At Central Christian School our mission is to partner with Christian families to instill within children a passion for God, love of truth, and zeal to serve.

We seek to do this by cultivating an academic culture that values:

  • An Unapologetic Christian Faith

  • Strong Academic Preparation for Secondary School, and

  • A Beautifully Diverse Community.

As a Christian school, our deepest hope is that our students come to know and love Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  We believe God has created each of our students as image-bearers of Him, and He has a purpose and plan for how they live out their gifts and talents not just as adults, but even today as children. Moreover, at the heart of our value for strong academics is the belief that God delights in our hard work and is glorified as we learn about the world He created.  We believe academic excellence and  biblical worldview can, and should, go hand-in-hand. Through the loving, personal, and creative instruction of our teachers, our students are cheered on towards risk taking-- emotionally, relationally, and academically-- so to gradually build confidence, critical-thinking, and problem-solving  all within the framework of Biblical truth. 

As a school community, we greatly value God’s creativity, including his intentional purpose to build His world with diversity.  Fostering a community that values diversity in many forms, including socio-economic, racial, ethnic, church denomination, and learning styles among children, creates opportunity for students at an early age to begin to learn what it looks like to live in community with those who are different from them, while simultaneously being united by shared Biblical beliefs. Our hope is to reflect God’s heart for His people by representing the diversity of his Kingdom among our families and that He would use those differences to shape us into people who understand Him and know Him better as a result of this engagement. 

We hope that through the Admissions process at Central you will find clarity and peace as you weigh all the factors that play into your specific family’s educational needs and values.
