Elementary K-6th Grades

Our curriculum at Central Christian School is in line with state standards as well as being Christ-centered. The students not only learn about God from the teachers, but they also read about God in their textbooks. The students come away not only learning history, science, math, english, etc., but also understanding the differing worldviews in a caring environment.

“We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders” (Psalms 78:4)

Religion in Early America

“Since the first Great Awakening, religious beliefs in the United States had been slowly changing. Some people had adopted an attitude called rationalism. Rationalism placed man’s reason above the truth of God’s Word.”
