What about before and after school care for my student?
GrowthCare is our before and after school program for students who need to be dropped off before morning carpool begins and/or picked up after the afternoon carpool session concludes. GrowthCare for ALL grades (PreK-12th) takes place in the Primary School building. Please visit our GrowthCare page for details and pricing for this service. Below are the times GrowthCare is available:

Is there a form I need to complete if my student is absent from school?
Where does my student athlete go after school to wait for a later game or practice to begin?
The only supervised option available for students after school is GrowthCare. If parents allow their student athletes to remain on campus to attend other games, they will not be under any direct supervision by CCS faculty or staff.
How do I order lunch for my student?
CCS partners with Schoolhouse Fare to deliver hot lunches from area restaurants each day. The order deadline for the full lunch menu is 5 days prior to the lunch delivery date. In addition, there is a 24-Hour menu which is open until noon the day prior to the selected lunch date. Click the link below for detailed instructions.
