Calhoun Christian School provides academic excellence while upholding God’s truth and challenging children to serve.

Calhoun Christian School will be the benchmark of excellence in Christ-centered education.


Our Annual AUCTION, Unmask the Possibilities, is tomorrow evening.  If you want to RSVP at the last minute there is still room.  It is going to be a fantastic evening and we are looking forward to seeing all of you there. 

We have decided to add THIRD GRADE to our BOYS RUNNING GROUP (3rd-8th)
When: Practices Tuesday and Thursday 3:30-5pm, Starting April 10th at Calhoun Christian School. We finish with a 5k race on Saturday June 2nd.
Costs: $25, which includes T-shirt and medal
Register for the group by Visiting:
Contact: Jon Major for more information (269) 967-2982

Please spread the word.  Our preschool and kindergarten round up is being held at March 22 at 6:30.  We will be providing information about our programs, giving tours, and meeting staff members. 

3x your impact! From March 12-31, Amazon is tripling the donation rate on your first purchase! Go to and Amazon donates to Calhoun Christian School.

High School students will be taking the final part of their TerraNova Testing on March 22nd in the morning, unless they attend BCAMSC. MSC students will be taking these tests on the same dates but in the afternoon. They will be responsible to make up work that they miss those days for their 5th-7th hour classes. We believe this will be less challenging than the very disjointed 7th hour testing that spanned multiple days/weeks last year.
Middle School students will be taking the Terra Nova on March 26, 27 and 28 in the morning.  Please do everything in your power to have your students in school on those days.  If you know they are going to absent, please let their teacher know as soon as possible so the testing can be completed ahead of time.

All Ages are welcome in the show! We’re looking for CCS students, alumni and school families. You can do a variety piece, song, dance, skit, or other creative act. Complete the audition form by Friday March 9th, auditions will be scheduled beginning March 12. We hope you can participate in this mission trip fundraiser that helps raise funds for the many needs in the Dominican Republic.

The Charitable Union is giving away (yes, they are zero dollars) prom dresses.  They have 600+ dresses they would like to give girls in our community.  The give away event is on March 24 from 10:00am-3:00pm.

We have a meeting to discuss next year’s live nativity program. The meeting will be taking place on Thursday April 12, a 6:00pm in the parent room.

On April 25, 2018 from 1pm-6:45pm We will hosting a blood drive in the school library. To schedule an appointment log onto (Sponsor code: CalhounChristian) or call 1-800-733-2767.

Parents just in case you want to begin planning ahead for next school year; if your student plans to play any sports during the 2018-2019 school year they will need a new sports physical. Any physicals completed on or after April 15 2018 will be valid for the entire 2018-2019 school year. Physical forms are available in the office. If you have any questions contact our Athletic director, Jake Vandepol, at or by calling the school office.

On Saturday, June 9th 9-1pm
we are hosting our first ever Clothing Swap!  This is an opportunity to get the next size up clothes for your students, as well as chapel wear.  As you’re are cleaning out your student's closets this Spring please consider dropping off your clothes (jeans, jackets, dresses, shirts, chapel wear, shoes, etc) to Summer LaBonte in the office.  We will pay you Cougar Cash for you to shop on June 9th for your clothing. We need ALL sizes (Pre-k through High School), please no stains, rips, or holes.  For more information or to help volunteer please contact Summer LaBonte 352-445-3452

Our elementary students participated in Jump for heart, a program that
kids can join exciting fundraising events where they learn heart healthy skills, have fun jumping rope, and raising money for the American Heart Association. We are proud to say that our CCS elementary students raised a total of $2346.14 for the program! Great job kids!
