History of CHCS

College Heights was established in 1978 as a private, non-denominational, not-for-profit school serving grades K-8. Beginning with the 1979-80 school year, one high school grade was added annually until the first senior class graduated in 1983.

The facility has been enlarged four times. In 1980, the first addition was completed offering seven classrooms, a library, offices, and the gymnasium. By August, 1990, the church expansion was completed making available to the school four high school classrooms, kindergarten space, and more offices. In January, 1994, students moved into three new classrooms and a science lab. To meet the continued need for Christian education, two modular buildings containing four classrooms were placed east of the building in the summer of 1994, and an additional modular building was purchased in the spring of 1995. In January, 1998, an expansion which included kindergarten space, high school classes, a computer lab, a band room, and a choir room was completed to address our continued growth and improved curriculum provisions. We continued to expand to meet our growing needs in the fall of 2003. The Lord again blessed us with the addition of 6 new classrooms and a conference room. In the fall of 2011, we added 5 new classrooms including a state of the art technology center and art studio.

Enrollment has increased over the years from 78 in grades K-8, to nearly 600 in pre-school through twelfth grade. This increase shows that a Christ-centered educational program was needed in the community. We are very pleased that College Heights Christian School has been able to meet that need.

Over ninety area churches are represented by our students, staff, faculty, and school board members. It has been a great advantage to the school to have so many from the community dedicate their time and services to Christian education.

The elementary and secondary programs are accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and we have been a member of Association of Christian Schools, International (ACSI) since 1997. We have truly been blessed!
