City Christian School, in its commitment to the Christian faith, exists to educate the whole child in spirit, mind, and body; thereby, preparing its graduates to be competent servant-leaders who are spiritually alive, mentally alert, physically active and actively involved with a local church.
Spiritual - Our prayer is that through spiritual education and a rich atmosphere of faith, students would grow to perceive and value Christ as the center of all learning. Our instructors integrate Scriptural principles into every aspect of life and teaching. One of the primary venues in which we emphasize spiritual growth is through the chapel assemblies held intermittently throughout the week.Chapel times include prayer, worship and teaching of the Word of God in an age-appropriate manner.
Intellectual - We endeavor to provide an effective academic climate for learning and encourage the development of skills required for meaningful participation in society. City Christian nurtures excellence in communication skills, research skills, and mature decision-making. We endorse a godly, character-based approach to education.
Social - At City Christian, we strive to provide students with opportunities for growth in social skills and the application of Christian principles required for healthy relationships within society.
Cultural - We aim to promote appreciation and respect for, as well as a deeper understanding of, our vast cultural diversity. Through a wide variety of music, art and drama programs and cultural instruction, City Christian endeavors to encourage further insight and appreciation for the various aspects of culture such as: language, art, dress, history, social customs, etc. We cherish the rich cultural diversity of our student body, staff, and community.
Physical - City Christian is committed to facilitating an atmosphere of health in spirit, mind and body. We provide many opportunities for learning and improvement of skills necessary for healthy living. Through our physical education program, students will take part in age-specific motor skills training. Additionally, older students, have the opportunity to participate in our athletic program.
From Our Principal
"City Christian School is a place where students are trained not only in academics but how to lead in their generation. For over 40 years City Christian School, formerly College Heights Christian School, has served the Ventura community. Our students have gone on to be doctors, actors, pastors, and community leaders. We consider it our vision and honor to provide your student with the tools needed to fulfill their purpose in life and make a difference in the world around them. - Katie Venti, Principal, City Christian School"
