We have several parents and businesses that have graciously offered to allow our students the opportunity to job shadow. This is an excellent way to find out first hand what your areas of interest are for college and career. There is a list of occupations listed on the bulletin board in the MPR and you can see the list here as well. If you are interested in possibly job shadowing, please see Mrs. Wadford for the necessary paperwork.
The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans. It is non-partisan, voluntary, and non-competitive. The program is open to all youth regardless of ability, circumstance, or socioeconomic status. Participants earn Bronze, Silver, and Gold Certificates and Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration. Earning the Award is a fun and interesting way to get more involved in something you already enjoy or something you’d like to try for the first time. You move at your own pace, on your own or with your friends. This is not an award for past accomplishments. Instead, you are honored for achieving your own challenging goals. Regardless of your situation, you can earn The Congressional Award. The Congressional Award has no minimum grade point average requirements. It accommodates young people with special needs or disabilities who are willing to take the challenge.
Volunteering in your community is not only the right thing to do, it is considered a requirement on most college and scholarship applications. It is not too early to start looking for opportunities to serve. I am sharing a list of opportunities, but these are not all of the possibilities. Do your research and find opportunities that work best for you.
On August 24th, 2015 Christ Covenant School moved upper school students into our new facility on Worthington Road. This is our phase (1) building which currently houses approximately 120 students in grades 7 – 12 plus faculty and staff.
CCS has gained a great reputation among discerning area families who desire a Christ-centered education that offers strong academics and extra-curricular programs, in a safe and nurturing environment. We are excited about the completion of the 1st-phase of our planned 3-phase building project for a new JK-12 facility that can accommodate 650 students on our Worthington Road property.
Check out the aerial view plans which show the completion of all 3-phases!
