Cambridge Christian School

Cambridge Christian School was founded in 1964. For nearly 50 years, the school’s mission is to provide excellence in academics, athletics and fine arts for the good of our students and the glory of God. We desire to reflect the excellence of Christ in all things. Our goal is to offer an education second to none, and to do it all through the lens of a Biblical worldview. Our curriculum and methods will be current, and students receive a 21st Century education that prepares them for a digital and global economy and directs them to pursue their God-ordained place in it.

CCS is blessed with incredibly gifted and passionate teachers and administration who model a godly life for our students, love our students, and desire to know our students beyond the classroom. We value relationships. At CCS, you will encounter an environment where rigorous academics and high achievement are valued, but where a balance is created by intentional relationships between staff, parents and students.
