School History

CCS Front

The Community Christian School Association was formed on March 2, 1979. As a group of concerned Christians from Metcalfe and district, we believe that it is our responsibility to ensure that our children are educated from a Christian perspective. To satisfy this concern, we opened a Christian day school, controlled and financed by association members, in September 1980. Then in September 1985, a new four classroom school was opened on Glen Street in Metcalfe, Ontario. Due to increased enrolment in the fall of 2002, the association started the first phase of an expansion which included a 2,300 square foot addition, providing another classroom, a computer lab, and much needed storage space. In the summer of 2005 the last phase of our expansion brought a multi-purpose facility, including a gymnasium, a servery, a new library, change rooms and new offices for the principal and secretary.

An elected board and a comprehensive committee structure is set up comprised of parents and members of the school association. This gives all association members the opportunity to work with Christian educators to prepare our children to take their places in society equipped for a life of Christian service and witness. We are thankful to God who is continuing to guide that development of our facilities, organizational structure and educational program.

Anyone who agrees with the Constitution may apply for membership in the Association. Prospective members are alerted to the fact that membership entails obligations as well as rights. The active and prayerful support of members and associate members is essential to the success of the Association and the school.
