Thank you for taking time to visit our site and learn more about our school. In this section, you will find information on our admission requirements and tuition. The first step is to fill out the new student inquiry form so that our school can have record of your interest.
As part of the inquiry process, you are invited to set up an appointment to tour the school, meet the administration and ask questions. You may call to set up a tour at (405) 329-2500 ext. 1307. Tours take approximately 30 minutes. You are welcome to bring your children to the tour. A completed application includes enrollment fee, transcripts, discipline reports, if applicable, as well as the student’s birth certificate and immunization records. Once the paperwork has been completed and the enrollment fees received, the administration will review your application.
Please note: CCS is not equipped to meet the needs of children with many types of learning differences and therefore is unable to enroll some students with IEP or ISP needs.
Please choose an option on the side menu to learn more.
Frequently Asked Questions:
- Is there availability in my child's grade?
Availability is on a grade-by-grade basis. In 6th-12th grades, availability may be dependent upon class size and the particular classes your student is interested in taking. If there are spaces available in the requested grade, the student will be able to enroll in the school immediately upon receipt of a completed application and approval through interview.
- Is there a waiting list?
If a student is qualified to attend but there are no spaces available in his or her grade, the student’s name will be placed on a waiting list. Waiting lists are not prioritized lists. When and if an opening becomes available, the Administration will select the most appropriate candidate for the opening. Openings occur throughout the year and new students are added to the grades where those openings occur.
- Is CCS accredited?
Community Christian School holds full accreditation with the Association of Christian Teachers and Schools (ACTS), the National Council for Private School Accreditation, and the Oklahoma Private School Accreditation Commission. For links to these associations, please click here.
- What curriculum is used?
The curriculum chosen aligns with the mission and purpose of CCS. Click the Academics tab above for grade-level curriculum information.
- How much emphasis is placed on the admissions test for acceptance?
The Administration carefully considers many aspects leading to the potential success of the student. The admissions test is only one aspect of the criteria.
- Do I have to send my child to Preschool and Kindergarten full time?
All preschool and kindergarten classes begin at 8:20 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. BeforeCare (6:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.) and AfterCare (3:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.) are available at an additional charge.
- Is CCS associated with a particular church or denomination?
Community Christian School is a non-profit organization completely independent from a particular church or denomination. We serve Christian families of all denominations. We keep our focus on Jesus Christ, the central message of God's Word. We emphasize the teaching of the Bible as related to all facets of life.
- Who owns or runs CCS?
Community Christian School is run by a school board which meets with the administration once per month. Click here for a listing of current school board members.
- Are students required to wear uniforms?
Dress Code is established for students in grades K-12. Complete descriptions of student dress code requirements may be found in the student handbook or may be viewed online at http://www.communitychristianschool.com/dress-code.html.
- What is the student/teacher ratio?
Class sizes are kept as low as possible to ensure maximum attention and one-on-one time. Average class size is approximately 22:1.
- Does my student have to buy lunch or bring their lunch?
Lunch may be ordered from the cafeteria in advance or brought from home. Lunch in the cafeteria is charged per item. An average of $5 per day is a good estimate. Each family has an account for lunch that is separate from tuition and fees. At the beginning of each year, a deposit is required and paid at registration. We ask that you keep a credit balance on your account that may be checked at any time online through your ParentsWeb account.
- Does CCS have storm shelters or safe rooms?
In case of severe weather, there are two private, above-ground storm shelters on campus for students and staff. These shelters are FEMA rated for an EF-5 tornado. We keep a close watch on warnings and news reports during times of inclement weather and are usually in touch with the National Weather Service in Norman. When we feel the need to transport students to the safe rooms, located in the secondary building, a parent alert message will be sent to parents so that parents will know the location of their child. Parents will also receive an additional alert when students leave the shelter and are safely returned to the classroom.
- What security does CCS have in place in case of an emergency?
All Community Christian School facilities have modern security and fire safety systems, video cameras, and the Blue Point Alert System, which immediately alerts law enforcement in case of an active shooter event. Click here to view more about the Blue Point Alert System.
