1 OUR ROOTS: Crescent City first opened its doors on September 4, 1956. The school was originally founded as Mid-City Baptist High School by Pastor J. Paul and Mrs. Helen Driscoll and was located in conjunction with Mid-City Baptist Church on Airline Highway in Metairie, Louisiana.
In 1975, the school and church moved from Airline Highway to a new facility on Transcontinental Drive. Along with the new facility, the school received a new name in keeping with the location and the Driscoll’s desire to reach everyone within the “Crescent City.” Thus, the name was changed to Crescent City Baptist High School and the church’s name to Crescent City Baptist Church.
In August 2005, Crescent City Baptist Church merged with Celebration Church to create a unified ministry within the community. At the time of the merger, Celebration Church owned and operated a school (Celebration Christian School) located on Airline Drive, which provided a quality education to daycare through 8th-grade students. With the merger, Celebration Church also acquired Crescent City Baptist High School.
Very shortly after the merger, Hurricane Katrina struck the New Orleans area destroying the Celebration Christian School campus and severely damaging the Crescent City Baptist High School campus. The two schools were merged at the Transcontinental campus, and, after rebuilding both its facilities and internal structure, now function together as Crescent City Christian School, serving students from daycare through 12th grade.
God has been working incredible miracles in our ministry and we look forward to experiencing what God has planned for the future of Crescent City Christian School.
