  • Life at CCS

At CCS, all of our curricular and co-curricular efforts are designed to foster the growth of each student to their fullest potential.
Chattanooga Christian School is committed to providing an engaging environment that allows students to grow from their unique points of need to their full, God-given potential. We recognize that not all students will excel in the same areas, but we also understand that each has been given special gifts for God’s glory. We also understand that these gifts are often tied to a student’s sense of purpose in the community. Thus, Student Life at CCS is designed to provide opportunities for students to develop and employ the gifts of leadership, creativity, and service in the context of rich relationships, for the purpose of cultivating a thriving, vibrant, school community that creates a sense of place for each of student.
We strive daily to strengthen the unity of the broader CCS community, while still celebrating the uniqueness of each school's culture and Student Life experience.

Lower School

Middle School

In Middle School especially, students are looking for a place to belong. In Student Life we orchestrate events, activities, and student organizations that help students connect with their classmates as they use their creativity, abilities, and gifts. We also lay the groundwork for the increased servant-leadership responsibilities that students will experience in the High School. We encourage students to invest in the school community by helping with various activities such as OAR, Homecoming Week, Spirit Week, Admissions Preview Days, Grandparents’ Day, and other community events.

High School

Every Student Life activity or event in the High School builds community and is led predominantly by student leaders under the guidance of the Student Life Director and faculty advisors. As these student leaders take an idea from concept to completion, they learn and practically apply organization, budgeting, teamwork, and leadership skills.
