Only 5 More Weeks of Winter

High School
As we endure the frigidness of winter, there are some things that have been happening and that are coming up that warm our hearts and minds.

TSA Students Shine at the Regional TSA Competition
The weekend, before last, Mr. Everhart took 27 middle school and high school students to the regional TSA competition in Lancaster.  Our students performed admirably against much larger schools, most of which were public. Those students placing 3rd or better qualified for the state competition.  Below are the high school results:

207 CAD 2D, Architecture                              Place 6 Nobuo Takahashi 
208 CAD 3D, Engineering                               Place 4 Michael Boerman
216 Extemporaneous Speech                        Place 2 Michael Boerman 
224 Prepared Presentation                             Place 6 Carissa Earnest  
230 Technical Sketching and Application       Place 1 Michael Boerman
                                                                        Place 3 Aaron Carter 
231 Technology Bowl                              Place 3 MIchael Boerman, Tyler Brenner, Aaron Carter
232 Technology Problem Solving                     Place 3 Tyler Brenner, Aaron Carter

CCS Students on Average Perform Well on the SAT
Miss Whisler, our Director of Reporting and Assessment, did some research and developed a comparison of SAT scores between CCS and the busing districts from which our students come. Note that on average, our students scored 1st or 2nd in each category and 1st over all. To see our scores simply click here.

Open Houses
Coming in March are our MS/HS open houses. On March 4 and 11 and April 15 and 29, from 8:15 - 9:30 a.m., interested students and families may join us for chapel and a tour of the school. If you have any friends or acquaintances who may be thinking about Christian school, tell them about the open houses.  If they are planning to attend, they can RSVP the school at office@conestogachristian.net. Also, remember that, if you refer a family to CCS and the student(s) enroll, you are eligible for a $500 tuition discount for the year. Click here or contact Mark Detwiler, Business Manager, if you have a question about our referral program.
