Academic Opportunities
ACT PrepWe will be offering a spring ACT prep class which will be on March 9th, March 16th and a practice ACT test will be administered on March 23rd. This will be at the US. The course will be taught by Pam Braxton – English on March 9th and Stuart Paul – Math on March 16th. The practice test will be administered by Stephanie Pope on March 23rd. See the attached pricing table for this class.
Job Shadowing
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.

Community
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.
Volunteer Opportunities
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.

  • Any student in grades 3 and up and participate in Running Club regardless of running ability or experience. We encourage running and make it fun through games, relays, distance work and other activities, and runners will train for either a one-mile or three-mile run to be held at the end of the season.
  • Practices: Monday and Thursday from 3:15 to 4:15 at the lower school. We will arrange parent carpools for upper school students who want to participate. If your child can only attend one day a week, they are welcome, but they will get more benefit if they come to both practices each week.
  • If your child wants to participate,.  There is no fee to participate, but if you want your child to have a 2019 running club T-shirt you will pay $13.50 for the shirt at the time of registration.

We need volunteers!! Running Club is typically the largest club at CCS, and it cannot happen without 6-8 parents helping out at every practice.  If a volunteer has a running club student and younger children as well, the younger kids can come to practice as long as their parent is volunteering that day.

CCS Building Project

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!
