At CCHS, our teachers are a living curriculum and are first and foremost modeling what it means to be kingdom minded, “taking every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Cor. 10:5). Our teachers aim to teach our students in light of this great truth, modeling and mentoring kingdom-mindedness every day with the hope that our students will see and learn what it means to live out their own faith with integrity.
