It is the desire of Crescent City Christian School to offer assistance to families in the New Orleans area in providing for their children a quality academic education in a distinctively Christian environment. We seek students among families who support the foundation of Jesus Christ, the truth of the Word of God, the practice of Biblical morality, and the goal of peak independent accomplishment spiritually, academically, socially and physically.
Academic – Applicants will interview with an appropriate member of the administration. A determination will be made concerning the student’s likelihood of success in the CCCS program. Testing will be scheduled if it is determined to be necessary or helpful in deciding on acceptance or placement.
Conduct – Older students will be expected to sign a code of conduct involving abstinence from all forms of tobacco, alcohol, drugs, and immoral sexual behavior. CCCS students are expected to be exemplary, respectful, patriotic, and submissive. Any previous discipline problems or conduct concerns should be disclosed and will be discussed during the interview.
