It's hard to adequately put into words our gratitude to each of the CCS faculty and staff for their dedication to our children. The foresight and vision they give daily to teaching our young ones about the Kingdom of God is something we do not take for granted. We are thankful for their example, and for the passion displayed for this school community.

The Nunes Maldonado family is thankful to God for the blessing Central Christian School has been for our family.
Gabriela is a 2012 alumnus. After receiving her Bachelor's Degree in college, she is working at the JM Smucker Corporation in Orrville, Ohio. Our son, Paulo, graduated in 2016. He was part of the soccer and basketball teams as well as Concert Choir. We have innumerable memories of his athletic career and the positive experience it was for him. Paulo is now a senior at College of Wooster majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. He plans to attend medical school after upon completing his undergraduate studies. Our youngest daughter, Laura, is starting 7th grade at CCS.
The Christian foundation that teachers and leadership impart each day played a major role in the way our children keep loving others and helping people whenever necessary. We are grateful for the dedication and mission that teachers and other employees show to all students at CCS. Their constant care in teaching and developing students' character is a vital piece in helping them become adults who are passionate for Jesus and His mission.
We are grateful for our community and donors that make an education at Central possible.

We feel that sending our three children to CCS has been one of the best “investments” we ever made. Smaller class sizes were a gift to our children because they became close with their classmates, and have maintained many friendships which will last a lifetime. Our children developed good relationships with their teachers, and those have lasted well into adulthood. Central prepared them well for the rigors of higher education, and all three did well in college.
Tammy and I also appreciate that our children could participate in multiple extracurricular activities, such as sports, music, plays, etc., instead of having to invest all of their time and energy into only one area. This has created three well-rounded individuals that is a direct attribute to their participation in multiple areas of Central's extra curriculars. Our children definitely became better athletes and musicians because of CCS, and they learned how to manage their time wisely.
Finally, we loved the reinforcement of Christian principals that they were already learning at home and in church. For us, it made family values, rules and discipline easier to enforce, knowing that other parents at the school had similar morals and standards for their children.

Since our girls have started attending Central Christian, we have seen them grow in many ways. They look forward to going to school, and enjoy many wonderful relationships with their classmates, teachers, and coaches. They have become much more confident in who God has created them to be. The accepting and encouraging environment has allowed them to get involved in new and different activities that they had not previously tried, and that they are now enjoying. It is such a blessing to know that our faith and values are shared by the school and staff. We love how Central has given them both a safe and encouraging place to grow in every aspect of their lives.
