A VISION FOR OUR CAMPUS
A $26,000,000 Vision for Our Campus Improvements and Institutional Stability
A Vision of Beauty
An Example of Excellence
Beauty confronts purpose when our campus embodies the purposefulness that we expect from our students and reflects the beauty of the God that we represent.
This legacy is not just for our current students and teachers, though that is important – it’s to ensure that the beauty and purposefulness that we enjoy are established and secured for future generations.

> Theater Renovations: An elevator, additional seating, better technology, and an improved HVAC are the key enhancements made to our theater to reflect the purpose and beauty we expect in our performing arts program.
> The East Side Portico: 3rd-5th graders now have a place to eat lunch under a shelter and Upper School students no longer have to stand in the rain for carpool.
> Gym HVAC: An improved AC system keeps us cool and comfortable at Senior Assembly, Grandparent’s Day, and other fun events in our gym!
> Main Building Restroom Renovations: No part of our campus is insignificant – we even want our restrooms to embody the purposefulness of our mission and reflect the beauty of our God.

> Like many classical Christian schools, Cary Christian School’s story is one of small beginnings. It was incorporated in October 1994 after a group of parents were inspired by this educational model. A few months later, 152 people gathered regularly to pray and plan to launch the school. September 6, 1996 was the first day of school and when Hurricane Fran hit North Carolina. Eighty-four students began their classes in trailers. In the spring of 1997, CCS graduated its first two students.
> God continued to bless the school’s commitment to classical and Christian education, and five years later the graduating class had grown to ten. By year six, under the leadership of Larry Stephenson, God provided the school with accreditation through the Association of Classical Christian Schools, more growth, and land to combine three campuses into one location. Through a unified spirit, trusting in a vision for the future that God had revealed (and a lot of hard work!), students and staff moved into the new twenty-one acre campus at 1330 Old Apex Road. The building was erected in ten short months. In 2011-12, CCS launched plans to construct the Field House and updated technology was added to the classrooms. With over 850 students, Cary Christian School is currently the fourth largest school in the Association of Classical Christian Schools.
> The school has no more land and has no plans to relocate, therefore we must continue to be good stewards and maximize every square inch of the property that the Lord provided for CCS’ mission. We believe that God is bringing about extraordinary outcomes for our students and the future of our community at Cary Christian School. As we launch phase 2 of a capital campaign for campus improvements and institutional stability, we will see how “Beauty Confronts Purpose.”
