Here's a little about us...
A National Blue Ribbon School, we are a Christian school seeking truth as we were designed to do. As a result, you’ll see evidence of excellent academic, social-emotional and spiritual preparation through a combination of research-based practices, differentiated instruction, and intentional relationships. Central is bringing a Gospel-centered approach and passion to excellent education in St. Louis while striving to lay a firm foundation for our city’s and nation’s future thought-leaders and change-agents. By developing problem-solving and critical-thinking skills in a nurturing and diverse environment, students in preschool through 6th Grade are equipped to thrive in secondary schools and engage their generation for Jesus Christ.

Beyond Core Content

Solid middle school preparation includes more than what some view as “core” subjects – math, literacy, science, social studies, and Bible. Because we educate children holistically, we also provide specialist classes: Spanish, music, art, Design Lab, and physical education. Students also deepen their appreciation of language, history, and culture through weekly visits to the school library.

    We enjoyed 13 consecutive years at Central Christian School. Without a doubt, it was the best thing for both our family and our children. They are now in high school and college, and we attribute much of their strong character, academic success, love for Jesus, and appreciation and respect for His diverse world, to their time at Central Christian School. They are still close with many of their peers; those friendships forged solid during their time at Central, as are we with parents we met during the journey. Thank you to Central Christian School for being a formative and defining part of our individual lives, and as a family!

    Such a loving environment where my children were known and cared for. The content is rigorous and met all of their elementary needs preparing them well for their next step! To pick just one thing to highlight it would be the teachers. Not only were they amazing with my kids, they are professional and demonstrate an attitude of lifelong learning. What a great example they are setting for students!
    Central Christian School has been an amazing community for my children to grow up in. The teachers love their students deeply and challenge them academically. Central has a loving and diverse community, where respect and care for one another are valued. It is a special, special place...unlike any other. We are so thankful for our experience there!
