I highly recommend CCS! As a parent, I looked long and hard to find the best school for my kids. They went to another local private school in town and we feel that CCS is a much better environment and certainly a much better education. It seems that all the students who graduate go to college and turn out really well-adjusted and kind. The leadership program is unlike anything in Tallahassee. It allows them to travel, learn life skills, how to problem solve and how to be a leaders. I am so glad my kids have had this experience. The school is small enough for them to feel they truly matter, but large enough that they have plenty of friends. The high school classes end up being like family. It’s a cool thing to see. The guidance counselor truly cares about helping her students get into the right college and is a tremendous help. The staff and teachers are kind, loving people who care about their students and want the best for them.

Friendly/caring faculty and staff, some nice leadership opportunities, poor academics. The majority of the classic books virtually every high school student reads (1984, Catcher in the Rye, etc.) are not part of the curriculum at CCS, everything was predominantly Christian authors, and unfortunately every class subject is approached with a profoundly narrow ideological slant. Moreover, they tend to imbue students with a paranoid perspective of the "outside" world, teaching them that the majority of society and culture will be working actively against them as they continue into adulthood as a Christian. Faculty and admin were discouraging toward ideas and views that didn't fit into the conservative, fundamentalist Christian framework of belief, and faculty didn't seem very interested in developing independent, open minds. This can be very suffocating to the curious mind, even patronizing and outright insulting. Intelligence/truth cannot thrive in a place like this.
I went to school here for the vast majority of my pre-university education. As I'll be graduating from college soon, I reflect back on my time at CCS with bittersweet feelings. This place in a very large way molded me as a young person. The special, mentor/student relationships with teachers, along with the many friends I made at CCS, are things I still treasure. However, this school has severe shortcomings as an academic institution which they appear to be entirely unaware of. They have no business calling themselves a "college prep" high school. Their approach to academics is not in any way comparable to their devotion and fixation on spiritual development. Many of the high school faculty I was instructed by were supremely unqualified for their jobs, AP courses were an absolute joke and rarely did anyone pass the AP exams. Many of the courses would only cover a fraction of the required material before the year was over—yet these problems were not a priority to the administration.
