Cary Christian School (CCS) is, in essence, an expression of the commitment of a body of Christian parents to provide the best possible training and instruction for their children. Our mission is to instill in each student a love for truth, wisdom, discernment, and learning through the use of excellent materials, in an orderly setting, founded on a growing personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. As a discipleship Christian school, we require that at least one parent or guardian of each applicant give a credible profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and be a regular attendee or member of a Christian church. CCS seeks to partner with like-minded parents who desire a Christian education for all their school-age children. If you would like more information, please call the school office for clarification before you apply at 919.303.2560.
Students seeking admission are evaluated on the basis of their report cards, references, admission questionnaires, interviews, and potential to perform satisfactorily at Cary Christian School. We are not equipped with the resources required to serve children who are seeking to be admitted into special educational programs. (See the “Learning and Disabilities Guidelines” section in either the Student-Parent Handbook.) Students who seek admission directly following suspension, expulsion, or behavior problems from another school will not be accepted until they prove themselves elsewhere. Students with less than a “C” average in their primary academic subjects may have difficulty in attaining a satisfactory level of academic achievement. The first quarter is considered a trial period for all new students.
- Kindergarten students must be five years of age by September 15.
- Students entering first grade must have reached the age of six years by September 15.
- Administration will either advance or retain students at its discretion, based on the CCS entrance tests.
- Students should understand that their parents have delegated their authority to the school and are therefore subject to the instruction and discipline of the teachers and deans in their prescribed roles at CCS.
Cary Christian School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
