History[edit]

Cary Christian School officially opened its doors September 5, 1996, with 84 students meeting in two trailers. The school experienced rapid growth, expanding to three temporary campuses and eventually to a building of its own, construction of which was completed in 2004. Cary Christian graduated its first senior class in 2005.

Cary Christian School has been an accredited member of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools since 2002. Mr. Dell Cook, a CCS theology teacher, has served as the Headmaster since 2012.[1]

Fine Arts[edit]

All students at CCS have opportunities to participate in the Fine Arts programs, either through regularly scheduled classes or electives.

CCS students have the opportunity to study music (band, chorus, music appreciation), theater (acting, directing, production), visual arts (drawing, painting, printing, photography, graphic design) creative writing, and film.

Band students regularly audition for, and perform with, regional and state orchestra and bands. The band classes hold two concerts a year, both in the Logic and Rhetoric schools. Almost half of the upper school performs with the Concert Choirs and a select group of students tour and perform with the Chamber Choir. Both Logic and Rhetoric school choirs hold two full concerts a year.

Visual Arts students regularly send art pieces into the community for competition and display and also participate in the ACCS Blakey Prize for Fine Arts, a national art competition.

Theater students put on two full productions a year and usually have a low turnout rate.[2]
