Great values, enduring purpose, small class sizes and high quality instruction and learning are at the forefront of Christ Community Lutheran School (CCLS).
CCLS has families that drive from Buffalo, Hanover, New Germany, Winsted, Waverly and Montrose. They make that drive based on a desire for an outstanding Christian education. People of all different backgrounds and denominations who are looking for a smaller setting and great family values will find CCLS to be the school of choice. The school is nestled on ten acres of land with a built in sledding hill and a safe and open playground for children.
“CCLS offers a well-rounded, values-centered curriculum that prepares students for success in many area high schools,” Principal Jeff Boehlke said. “Our graduates are leaders in athletics, drama, academics, student leadership teams and many other areas.”
Our staff is made up of experienced, licensed teachers, dedicated to building strong relationships with kids and families. CCLS teachers know the key to learning is having a relationship with each and every child and helping them find success. Most importantly, CCLS staff shares Christ as Lord and Savior to children and families, the most important relationship of all.
CCLS offers flag football, volleyball, archery, basketball and opportunities in track and field. CCLS also has Student Council, choir, band lessons and other Fine Arts opportunities.
This year, CCLS will continue its focus on STEM Education through Lego Robotics Curriculum in grades 1-6. An emphasis on 6+1 Writing Traits will also be in place this year as we focus on written communication skills that are vital for 21st century learners. With Smart Board technology in every homeroom classroom, utilizing all school Wi-Fi and expanded computers; emerging technology is also emphasized.
