Mission[edit]

The mission of Cambridge Christian School is to glorify God. Students and faculty are challenged to demonstrate excellence at every level of academic, athletic and artistic involvement; to develop knowledge and strength of character through a Christ-centered worldview; to partner with students' families; and to serve the local and global community, and the local and global Church.[1]

History[edit]

Cambridge Christian School was established as Seminole Presbyterian School in 1964. The school was started and sponsored by Seminole Presbyterian Church. By the end of the 1990s, the growing needs of the school necessitated its formal separation from the church. In 2000, the school became its own legal entity and changed its name to The Cambridge School. The church and school would continue to share the Habana Avenue campus for the next few years as the school decided whether or not to move to a different location. A few years later in 2003, the Board of Trustees voted to change the name of the school to Cambridge Christian School and decided that it would remain on the Habana campus and began the process of purchasing the campus from Seminole Presbyterian Church and began to acquire adjacent land for future expansion.[2]
