High School: 8th to 12th grade
As a student enters Crescent City Christian High School, a Christ-centered approach, teamed with qualified, caring teachers and challenging curriculum in all subjects, makes a difference. From Spanish to Advanced Math to English IV, students are afforded the opportunity to achieve their highest potential through challenging academic classes. Our faculty and staff are fully equipped to help our students reach their goals. A full range of academic offerings includes AP, ACT preparation and the possibility of dual-enrollment through a local college. At CCCS, we set our expectations high. We offer a wide variety of elective course offerings, including speech, Psychology, Journalism, and Small Business Operations. CCCS students complete their high school career academically, socially and spiritually prepared to impact the world around them with Christ whether in college, the military, trade school or the workforce.
We have a student culture committed to leadership, service, and integrity. Christ-centered leadership skills are also developed at CCCs through Student Council, National Honor Society, Key Club, Yearbook/Newspaper, and weekly Chapel. CCCS students learn first-hand about serving others by participating in a school-wide Day of Service where students, faculty, and staff band together to reach out and serve non-profits in the New Orleans area. Hours spent studying, rehearsing, learning, and growing…it all comes down to Graduation Day. Our desire is for our High School graduates to leave their alma mater with discipline, responsibility, Christian leadership, and a dedicated sense of who they are and how they can contribute to our world.
