Welcome to Community Christian School! We are a private, independent, college-preparatory academy serving the Pioneer Valley and surrounding areas, including Western Mass and Northern Connecticut.
We want to thank you for taking the time to consider CCS. We are a member school with the National Association of University-Model Schools® based in Arlington, Texas. Now in our eleventh year of operation, CCS graduating seniors are successfully entering into their chosen colleges and professions.
At Community Christian School, we are focused on building future servant leaders and are seeking families who want to invest long-term in being part of our school. We believe we have been called for such a time as this, in this region of the world, to restore what once was the birthplace of the Great Awakening.
Our mission is to partner with families in a Christ-centered learning community to provide a Biblically-based education that affords parents more time with their children. In order to accomplish our mission, we seek to glorify God, while using an innovative educational model that is spreading exponentially on a national level.
Our humble origin began many years ago when local pastors began praying for a unique Christian school in the greater Westfield area. A group of concerned parents and educators laid the foundation. Then, in 2005, when families, faith, and God’s favor came together, CCS opened its doors and introduced University Model Schooling® to New England.
This proven and innovative format, which is utilized by more than seventy-five schools nationwide, allows parental involvement and jurisdiction in their child’s education and discipleship, as God intended. Research shows that parental involvement is one of the six essentials to a student’s success in the classroom. Furthermore, the Bible makes it clear that it is the parents who have the privilege and primary responsibility of educating their children.
Since parents usually need help in order to provide an excellent education for their children, CCS exists to give these students access to professional instruction, solid curriculum, individualized encouragement, and clear structure.
We invite you to take a little time to read more and get to know what makes Community Christian School so special. We also invite you to attend one of our Informational Meetings in order to become more familiar with our school.
Finally, we invite you to prayerfully consider becoming part of the CCS family. God is doing great things here!
Community Christian School
We at CCS have also adopted the following theme verse for the school:
2 Timothy 4:1-5
“In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry”.
