Whatever is good . . . think about such things.
BIBLE VERSE 2019–2020
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8 (ESV)
Central Christian High School opened in September 1950 after being incorporated in 1948 as Central Kansas Bible Academy. The name was changed to Central Christian High School by corporate vote in 1955. CCS was founded by representatives of various Mennonite denominations as a result of their concern for young people. Leaders of those Mennonite denominations not only felt that students of high school age should have Christian teaching, but also were convinced that a biblical emphasis could only be given at a school which they owned and controlled. As the school grew, many different denominations became represented in the student body and faculty. Today, Central Christian is a Christian interdenominational school representing over forty churches.
The junior high school was added in 1971, allowing the training of students in seventh and eighth grades. Grades K–6 were added in 1975, giving CCS a K–12 program of Christian education. In order to provide parents a wholesome, Christian environment for their children that establishes excellent preparation for kindergarten, a preschool and daycare center serving children between the ages of 2 ½ and 5 was added in 1980.
It remains the prayer of the teachers, staff, and Board of Trustees members that everyone who has ever been impacted by CCS will go into the world as a positive influence for Jesus Christ.
