ABOUT CELERYVILLE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
CCS - Where Faith, Family, and Academics Meet
Celeryville Christian School has existed for 86 years! The community is dedicated in its commitment to Christian education. CCS is an elementary school providing education for Preschool through 12th Grade students.
Our teachers are committed to their faith and strive to instill the Christ-like values that we cherish from our heritage into our students everyday. Come out and see what we are all about!
"All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." II Timothy 3: 16-17 NIV
CCS maintains a strong link to the values and beliefs of the Christian Reformed Church and the Church Universal. Jesus Christ is the sole redeemer and keeper of our faith. Without Him, nothing can exist. He is the one that we strive to emulate in our everyday lives.
TRADITION OF DIVERSITY
CCS reaches out to a variety of families in the communities of Celeryville and Willard and the surrounding communities. Although the school was started for the CRC denomination, all denominations that claim Christ as their one and only Savior are welcome into the CCS family. Our tradition of diversity is evident in our student population as well as with our teaching staff.
We believe that high achievement in our academics is another form of worship to our Lord and Savior. Therefore, we hold onto our high expectations of our students and their academic performance. Our students strive to do their best; that is their calling in education.
Celeryville Christian School began in the years of the Depression Era. In a time when so much darkness and depression existed, the people of Celeryville decided to shine a light by beginning this school. From a small building down the road to our Preschool-12th grade facility now, CCS has continued to be that beacon of light for the community. Through God's great grace and provision, the school has opened its doors to hundreds of students over its 86 years. Many teachers, administrators, and students have come and gone. However, CCS remains in their hearts forever.
CCS has taken on many forms over its many years. A small school building housed its first students. Growth and the need for more academic space led to the construction of the new school building across the street from the church in the 1950s. In the 1980s, more growth led to the addition of a gymnasium, locker rooms, kitchen, library, computer lab, and classrooms. CCS continues to grow and change while still maintaining its mission to educate our youth in the way of the Lord.
The future holds some wonderful things for CCS! Excitement surrounds us as we look to all of the great things that God is doing and what He will do. Recent upgrades to the school technology plan have allowed for increased student access to educational tools that were otherwise unavailable. We have also tried to utilize new technologies to increase our communication with the community that so graciously supports us in our endeavor to educate the youth for Christ!
