Much of our curriculum is based on the A Beka® scope and sequence. While many of the A Beka® materials are used, we carefully supplement or choose other materials when they are more appropriate. We emphasize communication skills, believing that in order to meet our goals, students need to be able to speak, read, write, and listen effectively. We have daily Bible instruction at all grade levels, and Christian principles are integrated throughout the curriculum.
School Holidays and Vacation:
We operate with the same legal Holidays as the Boise School District. Our staff is provided an "in-service and preparation" day every other Friday. We request staff and students use these days to plan dentist and doctor appointments and activities that would take them away from the classroom.
Although we do not require a uniform, we believe in a Biblical standard of modesty. The detailed guidelines are published in the student handbook.
Because CCS strives to hold class student/teacher ratios at 18:1, greater individualization is possible. Having fewer students enables teachers to form a close relationship with each student, allowing them to identify individual strengths and areas of concern.
