Central Christian School

Located just outside the Clayton business district, Central Christian School serves families with children age 3 through 6th grade.  For over 60 years Central has partnered with families to prepare children by instilling a passion for God, a love of truth, and a zeal to serve.  

At Central we are passionate about cultivating a love for learning within our students as well as a deep love for God through our academic program and the relationships fostered between teachers, students, and families.  Our priority on excellent academics, social-emotional health, and spiritual preparation earned Central the title of National Blue Ribbon School in 2016, ranking us among the top 15% of independent elementary schools in the country.  When taking a closer look at our academic environment you will find intentionally small class sizes, a high value on differentiated learning, one-on-one and small group instruction, outstanding curriculum taught through a Biblical world view, racial diversity, and social-emotional supports geared to meet each student right where they are at in all areas of their learning and growth.  


One of the best ways to learn about Central is to visit and see our campus and classrooms first hand.  We invite you to visit for a tour and meeting with our Director of Admissions. If you would like the opportunity to hear from our Head of School and Principal as well, we hope you will consider attending one of our Admissions Coffee events.  To learn more, contact us at admissions@centralschoolstl.org or 314.727.4535.
