MIDDLE 

SCHOOL

Middle School is a vibrant, dynamic community, alive with the palpable enthusiasm and curiosity of its student body.  Our students engage in a myriad of activities outside of the classroom, be they on the athletic field, artistic, or service-oriented.  Channeling their energy and pursuing their passions, CCS students become more themselves through a host of extracurricular activities, adding texture to the overall middle school experience.  Student-run clubs, music, drama and speech performances, math and science competitions, art festivals, sports teams, and mission trips, all mark the CCS experience as one that encourages student voice and presence in the greater community. The students leave CCS's Middle School exemplifying Christ-like compassion, resiliency, and innovative thinking  that prepares them for their next chapter in life- high school.
