Whether you are exploring Columbia Christian for the first time, or simply need wise, educational advice, a one-on-one Educational success Consultation with our principal is the first step. You will meet with Ami Vensel, who worked with Columbia Christian students for over 15 years. Ami views Educational Success Consultations as an extension of her personal ministry, whether the family ultimately enrolls in the school or not. 

The most important goal is to understand your family’s unique needs and to help parents like you make wise, educational decisions for your child(ren), considering the demands and uncertainties of their future. Our time together will conclude with a tour of our campus, relevant materials, and all your questions answered.

Call Admissions Director Carrie Rude at 503-252-8577 to schedule your consultation today. You have a lot more education options than you think- let us work with you!
