Welcome from Dean of Students

“As the Dean of Students here at CCS, it’s my privilege to take part in developing student culture at our school. We want to move beyond mere institutional learning to be a community of lifetime learners. We hope to succeed at continually building an encouraging household of love, grace, rigor, and service.”

We are so glad that you are interested in our school and community. At Cary Christian School, we seek to be unified from age to age in fulfilling our mission to provide an excellent classical education, founded upon a biblical worldview. As a school community, we want to transcend beyond the mere dispensing of information. Rather, we strive to guide the students in applying knowledge, in wisdom, to live well and free. That is why we are continually developing a deeper, philosophically consistent culture, aligned with our Christian and Classical principles.

House System

House System, or originally also called “residential college system,” is a concept borrowed from our European and United Kingdom roots. It was designed for the residential, or boarding schools at colleges and was brought to the United States at schools like Yale and Harvard.
