History of CCS

Cambridge Christian School, formerly Chadashchay Christian School, started in North Branch, MN in 1978.  Using one room in the basement of the United Methodist Church, the school consisted of 22 students and 2 teachers.  The mission was to develop an educational program where teachers, in partnership with parents, could challenge the mind and deepen the heart.   

After one year, the school had outgrown the small space and had to find a new home.  Space became available on the Chadashchay Christian Center property located on Lake Fannie east of Cambridge.  With assistance from the pastoral staff of Lakeside Christian Church, the school thrived in a multi-denominational setting where children could come together to receive a Christ-centered education.

In the 25 years at Chadashchay, the school grew and matured.  Academic and athletic offerings improved and expanded.  Spiritual growth was enhanced by community outreaches, mission trips and a strong Bible curriculum.  The school increased in size and soon outgrew the facility.

In the Fall of 2004, Cambridge Christian School began the next chapter of its journey.  The school relocated to the new facility in Cambridge, where it continues in its drive toward excellence to build mind and spirit.

In the fall of 2006, phase two of the new addition was completed as a preschool/daycare facility was added along with additional classroom space. Additional classroom/bathroom space was completed in 2016.
