Our Mission: Glorifying God by assisting parents, providing a Christ-centered, academically excellent education, edifying the whole child, resulting in Godly leadership through service.
Teachers at Cherokee Christian Schools are committed to working with parents in a true partnership. For example, we know that effective communication between teacher and parent is vital to the success of our mission. Therefore, we have invested in Schoology- a powerful yet user friendly system that allows the parent to view the grades, attendance, and assignments of students on line. In addition, Schoology is used by teachers to post homework, test/quiz announcements, and important downloads. Communication is important and we believe that the job of the school is not to take over the duties of parents, but to support and assist them in carrying out their God-given responsibility to educate their children according to the Word of God.
Our teachers are thoroughly screened to ensure their perspective is one of Biblical Christianity. Cherokee Christian Schools are committed to naturally integrating Biblical values into all areas of the child’s life, from his/her interaction with peers to the content of the lessons. You can be sure that the value system and life view presented by our faculty is wholly Christian.
What Our Parents & Students Have to Say
- Cherokee Christian is an amazing school!! Our family has been a part of the CCS family for 5 years. All of the teachers and staff are so loving and caring. They help my daughters strive to not only do their best academically but spiritually as well. They are a true example of Christ’s love every day! So blessed and thankful for this wonderful school!!!5 Years at CCS
- As a single mom raising a daughter, I had to take a look at what type of people she had around her that influenced her life. Public school was not allowing her to become a Godly and compassionate young woman. CCS has been life altering and my daughter has really been filled with love, tenderness and compassion for others... best decision I could have ever made for my child.Mother of New CSS Student
- We knew long before we had kids that we wanted a Christian education for our children. We attended an open house and were sold. We met a couple of teachers and had plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Our children are now in the 4th and 2nd grades and we are pleased with the school. They both have only known CCS.We Knew CCS Was For Us
- CCS is unbelievable... I have loved coming here since the day I started in 3rd Grade. Everything is taught from a Biblical perspective, and everyone is like family. The teachers are all so enjoyable, and each one has made a big impact in my life. We are taught about the world’s past in order to help us make right choices for the future. The education I get at CCS is like none other.High School Sophomore
