Upper School

“We welcome you to Cary Christian School. Here in the Upper School, grades 6-12, students are busy contemplating important questions that direct them toward a better understanding and sharpening of their Christian worldview. We also work to help our students discern the alternative worldviews of the past and of the society they face today. As administrators and teachers, we strive to cultivate a desire for wisdom and godliness while working to nourish a spirit of inquiry and a love for learning.”

– Ryan Baker, Dean of the Upper School
