Reading: Phonics is the cornerstone of the school’s reading program; enabling students to master the all-important functions of reading, writing, and comprehension.
English/Language: Competent writing begins with understanding correct sentence structure, expands to paragraphs, and results in the satisfaction of well-written essays, reports, and letters. The unique features of the Shurley English curriculum lay the concrete steps students need to relate a definition to a concept, a concept to a skill practice, a skill practice to writing, and writing to effective speaking.
Mathematics: Students are steeped in math functions so that comprehension becomes second nature. The foundations that students develop in our math programs prepare them for success in High School.
Science: Exploration, experimentation, discovery, and understanding of God's world engage students as they develop scientific skills–asking questions, predicting, observing, recording, researching, analyzing, concluding and communicating.
Bible: Stories of the Old and New Testaments taught in the lower grades lead up to the profound truths of the Gospels and other portions of Scripture for older students to become thoroughly acquainted with the basic portions of Scriptures.
History: Students are presented with historical studies that with enable them to gain an understanding of the past and present, instilling pride of country, and looking for ways to contribute to a better future.
Spanish: Presenting students in grade K-8 with the opportunity to understand and use elements of the Spanish language can motivate interest and acceptance in other cultures and people. Our graduating students frequently test out of Spanish I when entering high school.
Our commitment is to offer a rigorous academic program that will provide the best opportunity for all students to meet their full potential.
CCS strives to lay the foundations necessary for our students that will equip them to view the world through the truth of Scripture. We provide a safe and challenging environment in which students can develop the critical skills for learning.
