Faculty and Staff

Columbia Christian Schools is confident in the quality and preparedness of our teachers. Our faculty and administration are credentialed teachers and staff, many having earned advanced degrees. With our 26 full-time administration and faculty there is an average of over 10 years of experience. We are determined to have teachers who are dedicated to young people and who have a passion for teaching with a compassion for students.

The faculty and staff involve themselves in the lives and activities of the student body, and each faculty and staff member serves as a Christian role model for the students at Columbia Christian.

Columbia Christian Schools employs one full-time teacher in pre-school, two full-time teachers in pre-kindergarten and one full-time teacher in kindergarten through 5th grade. Columbia Christian also employs a full-time teachers' aide for the elementary, a part-time reading specialist and tutor, as well as an art specialist, librarian, music specialist and physical education specialist.

In the secondary grades (6-12), Columbia Christian Schools employs seven teachers on staff full-time and seven adjuncts specializing in specific areas of the curriculum.

A school counselor is available for students in preschool through 12th grade, and guidance counseling is available for all high school students.
