One of the most gut-wrenching decisions you as a parent may have to make is to move your child from one school to another during the course of a school year. Or in the middle of middle school. Or from wherever your child has friends to a new unknown. Whether across town, or across the country, this important decision can be anxiety-ridden for you, and life-changing for your child.

At Columbia Christian School, we’re here to help. All our teachers are ministry-minded. We provide carefully differentiated instruction with individualized attention. Students and parents alike describe Columbia as caring, safe, peaceful, and nurturing. In a Christian environment, our students tend to be more welcoming of new classmates.

All transitions can be somewhat challenging. Much depends on the effort and attitude of the student. We help all students become a part of the Columbia Christian family and to succeed in all areas of student life by pre-enrollment testing to determine proper academic placements and by assigning each new student a “buddy” to partner with.

Strong academic outcomes are our hallmark, but Christian character and key skills such as resiliency and leadership are integral to our program.

Columbia Christian School accepts transfer students at all grade levels at any point during the school year. We work with each family to identify the transition timing and classroom environment that is best for the student.

Attend a free Educational Success Consultation and share the educational goals you have for your student with one of our administrators.

Potential students are invited to schedule a shadow day in the same grade in order to get a feel for what Columbia Christian School will be like. They will have the opportunity to meet faculty and current students while getting a taste of the fantastic classroom environment and various opportunities beyond our core classes.
