Crown Point Christian School began in 1984 as an association of evangelical Christians interested in providing Christ-centered education for their children. In 1985, the school began with a pre-school in a classroom of the Crown Point First Christian Reformed Church and added grades annually until the school was comprised of pre-school through grade six. In 1995, the seventh and eighth grades were added and the first eighth grade graduation was held in May 1997. By the fall of 1998, the school had outgrown available classroom space and relocated some classes to Living Stones Fellowship Church. Steady, significant growth in student enrollment has continued to the present time. In January 2007 Crown Point Christian School moved into its own newly constructed facility. Students are drawn from Crown Point and surrounding towns and villages. Crown Point Christian School is a member of the Indiana Non-Public Education Association. Crown Point Christian School is accredited with Christian Schools International-CSI and Indiana Freeway Accreditation. Crown Point Christian School is intended to be an extension of the Christian training children receive in the home. Together, teachers and parents partner in training each child for a life of service and obedience to God, for His glory.
