Welcome to Central

Dear prospective family,

Thank you for your interest in Central Christian School. We're aware selecting a school where your child and family can thrive is a big decision requiring much thought, prayer, examination, and conversation. We appreciate your desire to want to know more about our school, and I look forward to meeting you and your child.

At Central, we understand the tension facing families today because we live it ourselves. We want our children to know and love God intimately while still engaging culture. We want them to be well prepared for middle and high school yet remain fully present in the joy and wonder of childhood. We want them grow in self-awareness, understanding how God designed them, while having an others-centered focus. We want them to cling to truth while graciously living in community with those of different perspectives.

Our day-to-day program responds to this tension, striving to strike the balance as evidenced in our Portrait of a Graduate. Through our curriculum and classroom cultures, our teachers cultivate creativity, enthusiasm, and curiosity while nurturing our students' hearts. The result is a community of smaller learning environments where children feel safe enough to collaborate, ask questions, take risks, and challenge each another. We believe every child, every person, is created in the image of God and possesses talents and gifts to impact their generation. The training for this life of intention and purpose is found here as we partner with Christian parents. My own children graduated from Central. 

As Director of Admissions, I look forward to sharing our school with you. I invite you to take a seat at our table as you seek to discern God's plan for your child. Begin a conversation with us by completing an inquiry form, calling us, or sending an email. The outline of our process and admissions calendar will help you understand our rhythm here. 

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. It is a privilege to dialogue with you, hear how God has worked in your family's life, and meet your kids. Thank you for wanting to engage.

WIth sincerity,
Christan Perona
