Is Community Christian School affiliated with a specific church or denomination?No. Community Christian School is Brevard County's only fully independent Christian school. We are a discipleship-oriented school that makes it a priority to teach God's Word without a denominational bent. Our focus is to teach God's word and guide our students and families in confirming and maintaining a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
What curriculum do you use? In keeping with our school's purpose - to disciple students in God's word, to help them develop their God-given gifts and talents, to discover God's purpose for their lives, and to equip students to be productive Christian leaders in their communities - our instructional program is designed with God's word at its heart. Whether utilizing Christian or secular publishers, our program is biblically integrated and intended to instill a biblical Christian worldview in each student. Our elementary program incorporates materials from ABeka, Purposeful Design, and Write Source publishers. Our secondary program incorporates materials from ABeka, Bob Jones, Purposeful Design, Apologia, Mosdos Press, Glencoe, Prentice Hall, LifeWay Christian Resources, Summit Ministries, and Crown Financial Ministries. Students in 1st through 10th grades are administered the Stanford Achievement and Otis Lennon Ability tests on an annual basis to provide student achievement data and provide critical data necessary for evaluating our educational program. 10th grade students participate in the ASVAB career orientation exam each fall. Secondary students are given the PSAT (Practice SAT test for college entry) and are guided in the process of completing the College Board SAT (for college entry) and/or the ACT (for college entry). Elementary and Middle School students are involved in weekly special activity classes including music, art, and physical education. Secondary students have well-rounded elective options including classes in music, drama, dance, art, physical education, yearbook/journalism, and multi-media. All students are involved in daily Bible study and participate in weekly Chapel. Honors and AP courses are available at the high school level for those students choosing a higher level of academic rigor.
