History of Cambridge Christian School

Cambridge 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 Ministry property located on Lake Fannie east of Cambridge. With assistance from the pastoral staff of Chadashchay Ministries, the school thrived in a multi-denominational setting where children could come together to receive a Christ-centered education.

The school grew and matured during the first 25 years located on the grounds of Chadashchay. Academic and athletic offerings improved and expanded.  Spiritual growth was enhanced by community outreaches, mission trips and a strong Bible curriculum. Space was limited. In an effort to focus on multi-church sponsorship and to promote the school in a fresh way to the community at large, the school began to look for a new facility.

In the Fall of 2004, Cambridge Christian School began the next chapter of its journey. The school relocated to the new facility at 2211 Old Main Street South, Cambridge, where it continued in its drive toward excellence to challenge minds and enrich hearts. An early childhood center (since converted into a K4 classroom) and additional classroom space were added in the fall of 2006. More classrooms and restrooms were finished and ready for use in 2010. And our Phase 3 expansion completed in 2022, added more classrooms and a new gymnasium. 

The current campus of Cambridge Christian School houses elementary and secondary classrooms, fine arts classrooms, administrative offices, a gymnasium and a sports field complex.
