Choosing the right school for your family is an important decision. We understand it requires careful research, investment of time, and prayerful discernment to find the right fit for your family. To help you gain a better understanding of who Cary Christian School (CCS) is, we offer families a variety of ways to get to know us.

We offer weekly Campus Tours, semi-annual Open Houses, and student shadow days. We encourage you to come learn more about classical Christian education. See firsthand how our teachers pursue and shepherd students as individuals with an unrelenting, intentional pursuit. You will then be able to imagine extraordinary outcomes for your student academically, spiritually, physically, and emotionally.

Campus Tours


    9:00 – 11:00 A.M. 

During the school year, campus tours are held most Wednesdays. The tours offer prospective parents an opportunity to observe classrooms during instructional time, tour our beautiful campus, and meet with an administrator. These tours are held throughout the school year.

Open House

   Wednesday, November 13, 2024 (Registration will open in September)

   Wednesday, January 15, 2025 (Registration will open in November)

Our semi-annual Open House events allow prospective parents and students extended time to visit classrooms and get to know our teachers, staff, administration, and students. Unlike the campus tour, Open House is more individualized and allows one-on-one time with teachers and students for you to ask questions about Classical Christian Education at Cary Christian School.

    • Your student will have an opportunity to get to know his/her future fellow classmates over recess and snack time.
