Our School
Did you know that Columbus Christian School has been in existence since 1976? It is the only Indiana State accredited, pre-K-12th grade Christian school in Bartholomew County. The school structure is based on a Biblical foundation and framework for education that does more than provide information; it reaches to the heart and spirit of a student. The school is non-denominational and has students that represent over 40 churches and four counties. 
God has endowed each student with a unique set of passions, gifts and abilities. It is our goal to see that each student receives an exceptional education that allows discovery of each one’s talents.
Why invest in Columbus Christian School?
· For an average classroom size of 15 students
· For daily prayer time where students pray openly in the classroom
· For curriculum where students not only learn core subjects like reading, writing and math, but also the foundation of Biblical principles 
· For teachers whose mission is to provide academic excellence in a Godly atmosphere

Our Emphasis
The most important aspect of life at Columbus Christian School is the spiritual component. Chapel is an important time for the Word to impact our students. The spiritual emphasis is not confined to chapel, but integrated into all academic and extracurricular activities. Every staff member, counselor and coach is a committed Christian.
“And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.”
Colossians 1:10
