Cary Christian School Reviews

Cary Christian School was a wonderful experience. My first year at the school was in third grade, and since the school is small, I have been with the same classmates all the way through senior year. I never had any problems with my teachers nor with the overall school. I would say that your child is guaranteed an excellent education if you go to Cary Christian School, and that's from experience. The school offers a vast amount of sports for both middle and high school, which is impressive knowing that the school is smaller than the typical private school. The only down side I had from my experience was the amount of AP classes offered. Other than that, Cary Christian School was an amazing experience and I guarantee any child that goes there will enjoy it as much as I did!

We are with CCS for the past 3 years. I strongly agree that both my children are getting strong Biblical foundation through their education. I hear from them every day that their teachers prayed for them which makes my heart smile.
My second grader was able to memorize all of 1Corinthians 13, Psalm 23, Exodus 20, Psalm 100 along with many more memory verses with ease. Thanks to his wonderful teachers!

Students are encouraged to share in front of their peers. Spelling bee has been a great experience for us, past 2 years and so is the Plague play and the Animal report.
Teachers at CCS are real friendly and open to conferences any time. They even respond to text messages super quick and sometimes even later at night.
We love our breaks that come every 8 weeks to ease off our stress. Administration and after school care have been really helpful too especially with both me and my husband working.
We are looking forward to many more wonderful years at CCS ~ Swarna Hamsa
We are new to CCS but not to classical education and our experience has been an outstanding one so far! Challenging, rewarding, developing our children into thoughtful, respectful, articulate individuals. A classical education is an investment like no other and we see the fruit of it in our children. The dedicated teachers, volunteers and administrators are highly motivated and a blessing to our family. Thank you for your good and Godly work!
