"CCS has been my home for almost 10 years now, and every year I've grown to love it more and more. I'm proud to say that I've gone to this school since kindergarten and have never even considered going to another one. This year was my first year of high school. I don t think I ve ever been so scared about starting a school year. Now I ve been in high school for about half a year. I won t lie. It s HARD. I have to work really hard to keep my grades up, and sometimes I get really stressed, but more than ever, this year I ve realized how amazing and godly the teachers are, and how willing they are to talk to you if you need advice or help or just an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. High school can be really tough, but all of the precious moments I ve had at CCS make up for that: the deep, heart-to-heart conversations I ve had with teachers, the quiet mornings in Praise Band where it s just me, our small, 5-person band, and God, the special talks we have in Bible class (which is more like a Bible study than a class). Honestly, I don t think I ve ever felt closer to God than I have this year. If you re looking for a school to go to, please try CCS. I guarantee you won t regret it."
"Our oldest daughter entered kindergarten in the fall of 2011. To sum up the experience as life-changing and awesome would be an understatement. Not only did she flourish and grow, but our family did as well. There is no greater feeling than knowing that your child s teacher loves her as one of her own and truly wants what is best for your child. Our daughter acquired many skills that year, academically, socially and spiritually. Our youngest daughter started kindergarten this past fall. We feel extremely blessed to be a part of Cherokee Christian School and know that God s hand is truly on the school, faculty, and students."
"It s my privilege to wholeheartedly recommend Cherokee Christian School. In considering CCS, my wife and I wanted our daughters to attend a school that would challenge them academically and help them prepare for college. CCS has done a wonderful job providing that very thing. Our oldest daughter is now a freshman in college and doing very well, due in large part to the excellent instruction and preparation she received at CCS. We also wanted a school that taught from a biblical world view. The school does an excellent job here as well, both in the high school with our oldest daughters, and in the elementary school with our youngest. The truth of God s Word is woven through everything that s taught. I am profoundly grateful for this! Other things we appreciate about CCS are it s well-qualified, concerned, and involved teaching staff, it s extra-curricular activities (particularly the fine arts department), it s hands-on school board and excellent headmaster, and last but by no means least, it s helpful financial aid program. Here s to Cherokee Christian for doing an excellent job at what its name implies: being an outstanding Christian school!"
"Both of my children have attended CCS since Kindergarten... we've had a total of 6 years experience with this school thus far, and have no plans on leaving any time soon. Both of my children have had their share of learning challenges but all of their teachers have always gone above and beyond to help us deal with those struggles. Our children have really thrived there. In addition, the relationships we've made at the school as parents has helped change our lives. We truly feel that our children are receiving a Christ-centered education surrounded by grace and people who care about them tremendously. I encourage anyone considering CCS to visit the school, speak with staff members, and talk to other parents. I cannot recommend this school enough. I can't imagine my children any where else."
"Dear Parents, Thanks for checking out our school on greatschools.org. Over the last 15 years, we have enjoyed many wonderful reviews by parents who couldn t be happier with our school. However, the openness of social media and a website like this one can also be a place that you will find frustration, anger, and even hateful speech. My inclination is to defend the school by giving the reader enough detail to blunt or neutralize these kinds of verbal attacks. However, that would not be practical or appropriate. Instead, I will make this statement: Our school will continue to encourage and exhort students to behavior and attitudes that honor the Lord. I am grateful that most students respond to that kind of shepherding in a positive manner, but when a student continues to engage in behavior that is not God honoring, despite a great deal of time and effort invested in the student, we will do what is necessary to uphold the integrity of the school and the student body as a whole. My hope is that those kinds of values are important to your family and you will come and visit to take a closer look at Cherokee Christian Schools. In Christ, Mike Lee Superintendent"
