The Academic Program
At Community Christian School, we believe that God has decreed that the responsibility for educating children is given to parents, and that they may choose to delegate a portion of that responsibility to a school such as CCS. We believe that great schools lead students to eagerly discover the truth, joy and beauty of understanding God, His world and themselves as the pinnacle of His creation.
We believe this is best done through a thorough and rigorous liberal arts education that shapes and trains the mind, the body, the heart and the spirit.
We believe the best academic education is one that guides students over time to move from being dependent learners to becoming independent learners who are capable of teaching themselves, on their way to becoming interdependent learners who are capable of learning and working with others in the global community of the 21st century.
We believe that all students must be called and trained to become leaders of character who will significantly impact their world for Jesus. We believe that all students should know God intimately, enjoy healthy relationships, and obey what God has said in His word, the Bible. This educational philosophy is incorporated and developed in an age-appropriate manner in each of our school divisions.

Youth Leadership Tallahassee:
Congratulations to CCS student, Nick Ciarlariello, for being selected by Youth Leadership Tallahassee (YLT) to represent CCS this year! Nick was one of 35 students with 130 applying for recognition for their leadership qualities.
YLT is a year-long program bringing together a diverse group of high-school juniors from public and private schools in Tallahassee who have demonstrated leadership potential in formal and informal situations, and preparing them to become ethical leaders committed to active community involvement.

Congratulations to CCS senior, Jeb Buchner, for being recognized as a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist this year! We are so proud of Jeb for this prestigious accomplishment. According to their website, The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
