THE VALUE

We know that no one can put a price tag on a quality education, but we still strive to make it very affordable. In fact, parents are often surprised at just how reasonable the cost is to attend CTK. We also offer various payment plans and tuition assistance to make it even easier.

But what do you get for your hard-earned dollars? You get something that can't be measured in money. We provide your child with the opportunity to reach his or her full potential in a safe, caring environment where faith and academic achievement are nurtured and celebrated.

In the final analysis, the value of the educational experience realized through CTK is measured in your child's success, now and in the future. Moreover, we endeavor to ensure that money never interferes with your desire to give your child the gift of a lifetime, an excellent Christian education that prepares him or her for life in the world today, as well as life eternal.

THE ACADEMICS

Better Results

Students attending CTK consistently score above the state average in standardized testing. Our graduates are readily accepted into all local high schools, public and parochial, often moving right into various honors and Advanced Placement classes. The educational foundation built by CTK puts students in good stead for acceptance into top-tier colleges and universities, including Ivy League schools and military academies.

Environment

To facilitate the highest level of academic achievement, CTK provide structured, disciplined, faithful environments that are conducive to learning for students from preschool through eighth grade. In these environments, we develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, stimulate creativity and curiosity, ingrain the responsibilities of citizenship, and foster brighter futures.

Curriculum

All studies are based on Core Curriculum standards and incorporate textbooks adopted and accepted by the state. Our curriculum also includes other components vital to a well-rounded education, including faith instruction, physical education, computer technology, art, music (general, vocal, and instrumental), and language.

Dedication

Our highly dedicated professional educators are more than teachers. They're coaches, advisors, mentors, and friends. They have years of experience in Christian education, and many have already achieved or are pursuing advanced degrees. Through their passion and commitment, teachers instill in students a lifelong love of learning.

Smaller Classes

Our low student-to-teacher ratio at all grade levels allows teachers to provide individualized attention that challenges students intellectually and helps them over learning hurdles. Students remain engaged in learning and motivated through the day. Students and teachers form faster and stronger bonds than in classes with more students. These bonds lead to increased student participation and, thus, more success in the classroom. While teachers provide personal attention to each and every student, they also give students the independence to pursue their own interests.

Extracurriculars

We believe that everyone has been blessed with special gifts, and we strive to help students develop those gifts through a wide range of extracurricular activities that build, body, mind, and spirit. Because CTK tend to be smaller, students have a greater opportunity and more incentive to join in extracurricular activities. In addition to being just plain fun, these activities also serve to develop leadership and academic skills.

CTK athletics provide organized competition and fellowship to students in grade five and above. Students develop self-confidence, a competitive spirit and a sense of fair play in sports that include basketball, volleyball, soccer, track, and cheerleading.

THE STUDENTS

Visitors often remark about the joy on students' faces, the enthusiasm they demonstrate in activities and classroom discussions, and the palpable energy sense within the walls of CTK.

In addition to providing students with a solid academic foundation, we focus on instilling in our students a moral compass that will lead them in the right direction throughout life. We also instill a sense of citizenship by making students aware of their obligations, not just to their local communities, but to people around the world.
