The Bethel Assembly of God membership voted in June, 1975, to begin a Christian School under the direct leadership of Pastor J. S. Watson, who would serve as the Chief Administrator during the beginning two years. On September 8, 1975, the first bells rang with 50 students enrolled in the kindergarten through twelfth grades. The school began using the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum (A.C.E.). Teachers were not employed in the beginning, but helpers known as monitors, some “not paid,” aided the children in the learning center.
Many transitions followed. The school changed from the A.C.E. to the A Beka Curriculum with traditional classrooms and degreed/certified staff. Grades K-3 made the transition with a new grade added each year over the next three years. In the spring semester of the 2003/04 school year the decision was made to expand the school to include 7th grade in the 2004/05 school year and 8th grade in the 2005/06 school year. At this time, CCS offers 3 yr. old – 8th grades.
The CCS mascot is the Lion. “…the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1
