HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Central Christian School in Hutchinson has an introductory event for prospective parents coming up this weekend.
"Saturday, October 16th from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., we are inviting families who are interested," said Superintendent Dr. John Walker. "It's really just kind of an informal time for people to come and hear about the school, what we're all about, what our curriculum is, what activities we offer."
The mission of Central Christian is to partner with Christian families to provide students with a distinctive Christ-centered education which integrates faith, life, and learning.
"We're actually going to have a time where we're going to be engaging with the audience through some questions and doing some presentations," Walker said. "We're going to have some previous students who have graduated come back and speak and give their testimony of how Central shaped their life. One family is going to have the opportunity to receive a $500 scholarship."
CCS is a preschool through Grade 12 Christian school, and for the 2021–22 school year, there are 215 students enrolled. There are 33 preschool students, 77 elementary students, and 105 students enrolled in Grades 6–12.
