  7. Acceptance & Enrollment 
 CSD has a selective Admissions process, knowing we are not the right fit for every student or family. 
We accept students who are at grade level understanding or above in core courses and who have a history of being a positive influence on their classroom environments.  We also ask that students have demonstrated respect for authority in their previous school settings.
We accept families in which at least one parent has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Parents should be willing to partner with us in educating their child from a Christ-centered point of view, as well as maintaining a home environment and lifestyle that support Scriptural principles and our Doctrinal Statement
Please review our Admissions Criteria for further information. 

 Testing is an important part of our Admissions process so that we can be sure your child will be successful at CSD.  The District Entrance Test will be scheduled after you submit your student's application.

No, but general expectations are maintained at each grade level.

CSD seeks to cultivate a wholesome environment that is conducive to learning. Dress code expectations are not intended to measure spirituality or to promote legalism, but rather serve as standards that enhance the teaching and learning environment, and preserve the ethos of the CSD community.

We do not currently offer bus service. Our school district does offer opportunities to carpool within our community of families. 

CSD offers a hot lunch program Elementary through High School. Our dedicated food service staff and volunteers are committed to providing nutritious lunches to our students at an affordable price. We are not currently offering any lunch services at Preschool.

  • The hot lunch program at Middle and High School consists of pre-ordered meals and a la carte window on a daily basis.
  • The Elementary program offers pre-ordered meals on a daily basis.
