Columbia Christian Schools
Accreditation and Licensing

Kindergarten - 12th Grade
Columbia Christian Schools has been dually accredited since the spring of 2000 for Kindergarten through 12th grade by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools (a division of AdvancED) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Accreditation benefits both the student and the school, ensuring that quality standards are met in each and every aspect of the school. Most importantly, accreditation provides validity to the education program, ensuring that Columbia students are readily accepted into colleges and universities. Further, accreditation allows the school to apply for grants and outside funding from private agencies.


Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten
Our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten program is licensed by the Oregon Child Care Division as a certified childcare facility.  For 2015-2016 we will accept 20 students for our 4-year-old class and 16 students for our 3-year-old class.  The school day begins at 8:00 am and concludes at 3:00 pm. Our school year runs from the Wednesday after the Labor Day holiday until the second Friday in June.  Children must be 3 years old by the first day of school.

Extended Care
We also operate a licensed Extended Care Program that runs from 7-8 AM and from 3-6 PM on school days.
