About Us

About Community Christian School (CCS)

Community Christian School has a history of providing high quality educational services in the Fort Dodge area since 1978. Families representing over 25 churches have selected CCS as their school of choice, based on its commitment to a philosophy of Christian education and academic excellence, small class size, commitment to building Christian character, ministry-minded staff that truly care about each individual student, the safe environment provided, and opportunity for parental involvement.

School History

Community Christian School (CCS) was founded on January 18, 1978, through a vote taken by the members of the First Evangelical Free Church (FEFC) of Fort Dodge. Classes began in the fall of 1978. A high school was added in 1980 and operational until 1991. The intent was to “parent and guide a Christian school” that would be nondenominational in its focus and teachings yet would stress those central truths of the Bible that unite Christians. Classes met for the first time in the fall of 1978.

The school remained housed in the basement of FEFC until the spring of 2013 when the school relocated to 2406 9-1/2 Avenue South, Fort Dodge, IA. At that time, the school also became an independent, non-denominational school no longer governed by the FEFC.  In January of 2018, the school added a daycare center to CCS serving infants to school age children.


CCS is accredited by Christian Schools International (CSI) and by the state of Iowa.

Our Mission

“Our mission is to serve God by providing families with an academically excellent and biblically integrated education that encourages spiritual development and social responsibility in an environment where students can develop their God-given gifts and talents.”

Statement of Faith

    • the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God;
    • that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
    • in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory;
    • that for salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential;
    • in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life;


  • in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation; and
  • in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Governance Model

Community Christian School is governed by a School Association who ensures the integrity of the school operation is maintained.
