Students applying for K4/K5 will meet with a teacher to assess readiness.
1st Grade – 8th Grade
Students applying for 1st grade through 8th grade will be screened with a standardized testing instrument. This assesses language and literary development, number concepts, moto skills, and social development. Students should score at or above the development level. Parents will be notified of the screening results and a meeting will be set up to discuss the test results and the next step in the application process.
9th thru 12th Grades
Students applying for grades 9th thru 12th should submit the results of a nationally – normed standard test taken within the past 12-18 months. Students should score at grade level or at the ’exceeds’ level of the Georgia Milestones. If current testing records are not available, additional testing may be required and a test date will be scheduled.
CCS is a discipleship-style school. As such, there is a requirement that at least one parent in every home to give evidence of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, be activity involved in a local church, and agree with the basic tenants of the CCS Statement of Faith. Students salvation is not required for acceptance, but high school students should have a similar value and belief system

Past Due Accounts
Monthly tuition payments are due by the 1st of each month and are considered late after the 10th of the month.Payments received after the 10th will be assessed a late fee of $35.00 per month. Financial accounts falling behind more than 45 days must contact the office immediately. Failure to contact the office in a timely manner may result in the student being withdrawn from CCS.
It is assumed that a family is enrolling for the entire year and budgets are set accordingly. If a student is withdrawn before the end of the school year, a 2 week advanced written notice should be given to the office. Because tuition is paid on an eleven month period, families are expected to pay the current month’s tuition plus an additional 1 months tuition. Report cards and/or transcripts are released to the parent or other schools only when the student’s financial account is current. Special Note: Families who have paid the year in advance will pay the current months tuition plus 2 months tuition. (First and last month).
Financial Aid & Assistance
Central Christian School is committed to providing a quality Christian education and instilling godly character in each and every student. We understand the financial committment that a family makes when they choose private or Christian education. Central’s goal is to partner with families who have financial needs. Therefore, a limited amount of financial assistance is available to qualifying applicants.
Financial assistance and aid recommendations are made by FACTS “Grant and Aid Assessment”, an independent company which provides Central with a confidential financial needs report. This report assists the Scholarship Committee in determining the amount of tuition assistance granted. Assistance covers between 10% and 50% of tuition and does not cover any fees. Financial assistance is not available to Pre K students.
Currently, the majority of our financial assistance is provided through our Student Scholarship Organization, GOAL. Through this program, Georgia tax payers can redirect Georgia income tax dollars to eligible Georgia private and Christian schools. The state of Georgia has defined parameters as to who is eligible to receive financial assistance. Limited assistance is also available through the Central Foundation (See the link on the web site).
Central welcomes donations of any amount to our unrestricted scholarship fund. Your financial gifts would be a tax deductible contribution and would make a tremendous impact on a student’s life.
1. The online admissions application and application fee must be submitted prior to admitting an application for financial aid. (Application fees are non-refundable.)
