At Central Christian Elementary, it is our goal to develop academically prepared students through a Christ-centered education and to help them develop a Biblical worldview. The Bible and the teachings of Jesus Christ are woven into the total educational program through grade level curriculum, our music and art program, physical education, weekly chapels, service-learning projects, etc.
Teachers provide a nurturing environment for students while encouraging them toward our ultimate goal, the yielding of their lives to God and the development of a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Other things you might like to know about us:
Elementary chapels occur weekly and include praise and worship music followed by biblically-based teaching. This happens through guest speakers, skits, biblically-based lessons, PowerPoints, object lessons, etc.
Service Learning projects assist teachers in helping students develop an awareness and desire to serve others. Each class has chosen their own year-long service project based on 1 Peter 4:10, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” Service learning projects combine the Bible’s commands, to think of others before ourselves and to serve one another, with learning objectives in our curriculum.
Music programs are always a delight and occur K-12 at Christmas time and then K-5 again in the spring.

Because we value the parent/school partnership in each child’s education, we hold Parent/Teacher conferences twice a year, once in October and once in February. We do evening conferences as well as daytime conferences in order to accommodate our working families, but regular communication happens frequently during the school year as well.
