Community Baptist Christian School opened its doors in August 1976 with four teachers and 68 students.  At the time, it was our desire to have a school that would reinforce the values of Christianity and patriotism the children were learning in their homes and churches. Through the years, our goal has remained the same: to work together with parents and pastors to rear godly young people.


Following the first year, enrollment quickly grew.  A new grade was added each successive year, as was planned, until the school offered a complete program through the 12th grade.  The first seniors graduated in 1982.


In 2002, Community Baptist Church undertook a major building campaign that included the addition of a new church auditorium, several classrooms for the school, a nursery/preschool wing, and a teacher's lounge.  The new building tied together the existing two buildings for the beautiful layout that we have today.

In 2010 CBCS expanded the preschool program from a half day to full day option.​


CBCS has always been a ministry of Community Baptist Church.  It joined The American Association of Christian Schools (AACS) in November of 1977 and is also a member of the Indiana Association of Christian Schools (IACS).  Community Baptist teachers are certified by the AACS, and in February 2013 CBCS gained accreditation from the AACS.
