Central Private School
Central Private is committed to preparing students for the future in a safe, nurturing Christian environment in which students are encouraged to grow, share, and learn with a faculty dedicated to academic excellence. We offer an accelerated college preparatory curriculum wherein students are encouraged to pursue individual interests, excel beyond basic academic standards, and achieve success as productive members of the community.
Central Private seeks to provide the opportunity for students to grow and develop their capabilities to the highest degree. Our comprehensive college-preparatory program is designed for students to develop skills and attributes that will well equip them not only for college, but also for a successful life, based on Christian principles. Students receive a balanced program providing them with strong spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social development. Central maintains a Christian faculty, staff, and administration dedicated to developing the individual potential of all students in keeping with the philosophy of the school.
CP's tradition of excellence is supported by a full college-preparatory curriculum; a low pupil/teacher ratio; separate gymnasiums, libraries, and computer labs for the elementary and middle/high schools; athletic programs for both boys and girls; and an after-school care program.
