CCS staff exemplify and teach students how to learn and practically apply their Christian faith in all areas of life. Our desire is to see each student to continually grow deeper in their love for Jesus Christ. We teach each subject on a foundation of a Biblical worldview. Through active service opportunities, we seek to be “salt and light” to the community around us. Bible courses and curriculum, weekly chapel, prayer time, and leadership opportunities through chapel and mentorship, mission trips, and spiritual retreats are some of the practical ways we seek to implement our Christian faith into all areas of life.
A personal note from CCS Chaplaincy Manager,
Mr. Edwin Tucker, Lic. Minister
“Though our students do receive an excellent education, it is the edification through biblical principles that really sets CCS apart. Sure, our secondary students do score higher than the national average on the PSAT and ACT. But when I get to see 27 hands rise up for a first-time declaration of faith or a kindergarten student runs to me and excitedly says “Mr. Ed, Mr. Ed watch what I learned!” and she proceeds to sing a worship song and do the dance moves with confidence, that is edification. Edification is what we celebrate with our bell ringers’ program.”
Bell Ringer Program
When Warriors are caught in the act of displaying the characters of Courage (doing the right thing or trying something new), Charity (acts of kindness) or Service (helping with a servant heart) they are nominated by staff or teachers for the Bell Ringer Program. They are then invited to ring the school bell to conclude the week.
Matthew 18:3-5 says this: ‘And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.’
We look for Courage, Charity and a Servant heart here at CCS! We may also refer to that as being the hands and feet of Jesus. We catch students making the right choices every day. Whether it is choosing to serve on the worship team or struggling with temptation and making a good choice anyway. It could be them sitting with the new students that were sitting by themselves or volunteering to help with different tasks around the school on a consistent basis. Our students truly show courage, charity, and a servant heart in the spirit of Matthew 18. They just give of themselves so generously. I am so proud of them and hope to follow their example!”
