Basketball at CCS

The Chattanooga Christian School basketball program is built upon three core values: Character, Commitment, and Sacrifice. Our players are challenged to reflect these values on the basketball court, in the classroom, and in their daily Christian walk. The game of basketball is used as a platform to reinforce these values as well as to teach the spiritual life lessons found in it. It is our goal to grow the unique God given gifts, talents, and abilities of each of our student athletes.

The Boys Basketball team won the State Championship title in 2001.
