Community Christian School offers an accredited 7th and 8th grade junior high program, which focuses on the spiritual development, critical thinking skills and leadership abilities of each individual learner.
In 2013, CCS adopted our primary curriculum, Bob Jones, throughout our Junior High. Bob Jones is a well-known and established Christian curriculum which integrates Biblical truth and academic rigor in each subject. Students in 7th-8th grade experience a daily program of Bible, mathematics, grammar, reading comprehension, science, social studies, computer, art and P.E. Seventh grade students are assessed annually by Stanford 10 to monitor academic growth, and our 8th grade students are assessed with the PSAT assessment.
Teachers at Community Christian School all hold a Bachelor’s degree, as well as an ACSI Teaching Certification. Each teacher has undergone countless hours of both academic and Biblical professional, ongoing development. These teachers challenge students daily by creating a student-centered learning environment, where the focus is on Jesus Christ. Students learn through hands-on experiments, field trips, technology and cross-curricular integration of concepts. Teachers use a multitude of assessment tools including classroom projects, writing portfolios and teacher conferencing. Each year, students take a benchmark achievement test, Stanford 10, a tool that is used to help both students and teachers grow. It is the mission of all grades to equip students to walk in truth, embrace excellence, and impact the world for Christ.
