Welcome to Crown Point Christian School

Crown Point Christian School’s unwavering mission is to shape young minds and hearts to see the glory of Christ in all things. Committed to academic excellence, we train children to understand the world around them and recognize that every part belongs to God. We mentor, encourage and inspire intellectual curiosity so that they might honor God with their minds and grow in lives of service. Beyond providing outstanding faculty, exceptional facilities and the latest technologies, Crown Point Christian School delivers a community experience.

An active network of parents, administrators, teachers, students, friends and family have formed the fabric of the community that underpins the vision and direction of Crown Point Christian School. The school serves nearly 740 students (pre-K through 8th grade) at its vibrant and growing campus in St. John, Indiana.

We are committed to partnering with you in raising generations of Christian leaders who, by God’s grace, will influence culture and make a difference in God’s kingdom.

History

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 communities. 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.

Mission

Crown Point Christian School is an association of evangelical Christians committed to providing a biblically-based, Christ-centered education that partners with parents in preparing children spiritually, socially, academically, and physically to honor God in all aspects of life.

The lordship of Christ and the providential care of God permeate everything, and Christian teachers strive daily to help each child know the Lord. Christian teachers are charged with the responsibility of working cooperatively with parents to guide each child towards academic, social, physical and emotional growth, and spiritual maturity. Together, we strive to promote the following ideals for our students:

  1. Development of the Christian virtues: love, honesty, courtesy, obedience, respect, tolerance, cooperation, and the discipline of body and mind consistent with God’s Word.
  2. Development of Christian citizenship and leadership: in the school, in one’s chosen occupation, and in the community consistent with God’s Word.
  3. Development of Christian learning utilizing the full potential of our God-given ability.

The purpose of Crown Point Christian School is to provide an education for children that is: Christ-centered, in the most complete sense, and of the highest quality.

Governance

Crown Point Christian School is governed by a board of trustees of 9 to 15 members, elected by the association members in an annual meeting each spring. Association members are school supporters who:

  • are committed to biblical, Christ-centered education,
  • are members of an evangelical, biblically-based church,
  • contributed at least 2.5% of one child’s tuition rate within the past year, or pay tuition, or are an employee of the school,
  • are in agreement with and pledge to support CPCS’s Constitution and the school’s mission.

The school board determines policies, sets the vision of Crown Point Christian School, and directs the Head of School to carry out its policies.

Any member of the association, except an employee of the school, is eligible to serve as a board member. Annually the board nominates a slate of candidates for board membership and the association votes for members of the board from this slate.

The Head of School provides the executive leadership that serves the staff, students and association in carrying out the school’s mission
