Chinese Christian Schools, also known as CCS (Chinese Traditional: 華人基督教學校, Simplified: 华人基督教学校, Pinyin: Huárén Jīdūjiào Xuéxiào), includes elementary education. CCS is located in Alameda, California. The majority of the student population is Chinese or of other Asian ethnicity, however students of other ethnic groups are not uncommon.[1] As CCS is a private school, all students are required to pay a nominal tuition fee.

Mission[edit]

The school describes itself as "an educational ministry that is college preparatory in academics, Christian in philosophy, and Chinese in culture."[1] The motto of Chinese Christian High School is "Transforming Lives for the Glory of God."[2]

Students with a GPA lower than 2.0 or are failing in any academic class are not allowed to participate in sports activities.[3]

Although CCS athletes do bring home occasional titles, the program is most noted for receiving a high number of Sportsmanship and Scholar Athlete awards. The Scholar Athlete Award rewarded the athletes for maintaining the highest GPA average during the season. In 2007, a student athlete was recognized in the local newspaper for her outstanding character in competitions.

In the year 2011, Bay Area Chinese Bible Church built a worship venue that includes a much awaited gymnasium that can also be used as an auditorium, dubbed the "Gymnatorium." Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the athletics programs will use this gymnasium as a home gym, for both games and practices. The volleyball, basketball, and badminton programs will be housed in this gym.
