Cambridge Christian School (CCS) is a co-educational, independent Christian (non-denominational) school serving grades PreK–12, located in Tampa, Florida, United States. CCS is a college preparatory school accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools, Christian Schools of Florida, the National Council for Private School Accreditation, and the Florida Kindergarten Council.
The mission of Cambridge Christian School is to glorify God in all the highest . Students and faculty are challenged to demonstrate excellence at every level of academic, athletic, spiritual, 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.
Cambridge Christian School was established as Seminole Presbyterian School in 1964. The school was started and sponsored by the 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 to move to a different location. In 2003, the Board of Trustees voted to change the name of the school to Cambridge Christian School, decided that it would remain on the Habana campus, began the process of purchasing the campus from Seminole Presbyterian Church, and began to acquire adjacent land for future expansion.
