Contra Costa Christian Schools

Preparing the Next Generation

Mission Statement & History

Contra Costa Christian Schools is a distinctively Christian learning community committed to academic excellence, preparing children of Christian families to live out their purpose as builders of God’s Kingdom.

Contra Costa Christian Schools was established in 1978 as a high school to serve families in the Walnut Creek area.  The school opened classed with approximately 85 students in grades 9 to 11.  The high school expanded its program to include grades 9 to 12 in subsequent years.  In the early 1980s, families opened a separate school to serve K-8 families called Woodlands Christian School.  Woodlands Christian School purchased the current campus and rented space to the high school in the early 1980s.  Although the two schools were separate entities, they shared the same campus to serve students K-12.  As families and siblings crossed both programs, the schools merged to create Contra Costa Christian Schools that now spans preschool through high school.

Over the last 35 years, Contra Costa Christian Schools has maintained its original mission to Prepare the Next Generation with Christian values and a quality academic foundation.  While the instructional strategies and curriculum has evolved since its founding, the core mission of serving families in the East Bay remains the same.  Contra Costa Christian Schools provides a high quality 21st century education within a Christian context that equips students for success in whatever field of study or career they choose to pursue.
