About Circle Christian School

Since 1985, Circle Christian School (CCS) has served Christian families in the Central Florida area. Enrollment at CCS, an FCCPSA/AdvancED accredited private school, provides each family the unique opportunity to individually address student academic needs while engaging in a supportive and inspiring school-wide community. Circle Christian School is the best of both worlds! We offer a university hybrid model, where parents are active educators and Circle provides accredited private school programming!

The academic office maintains a record of student grades, curriculum, enrichment choices, and online standardized testing opportunities. High School students will benefit from Circle’s full-service Guidance Department including course planning, student and parent workshops, conferences, scholarship recommendations, official transcripts, dual enrollment options, and Florida Bright Futures documentation. These services are universally provided to all students enrolled at Circle.

As an accredited private school that utilizes three Central Florida campus locations, Oviedo, Winter Park, and Winter Springs, parents have the opportunity to choose classes and programs best suited to their student’s needs.

Through the university hybrid model, students may attend classes at one of our three campus locations for one or more days of the week, while also working at home with the active involvement of parents partnering in their education. Grade levels K-12 benefit from small class sizes, community, and qualified teachers who care about developing a child’s heart and mind.

Students can also participate in a quality sports program and engage in outstanding extracurricular activities such as art, science, drama, and music. Circle athletes, competing against public and private schools, have won numerous district, regional, and state titles, and the Circle arts program has earned a distinguished reputation for family-friendly entertainment.
To date, Circle has graduated over 1,550 students including 15 National Merit Scholars and 31 Commended Scholars.

Take A Closer Look

Theology

Enrollment in Circle Christian School is open to all Christian households that are committed to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and are in agreement with Circle’s Doctrinal Statement. As a Christian School we adhere to the fundamentals of the Christian faith; however, we are not associated with any one church or denomination. At least one parent must be a Christian and agree to Circle’s doctrinal statement.

Parent Partnership

Circle’s model of education provides parents with the opportunity to choose their own curriculum with the guidance of a curriculum specialist for at home education, or choose one or more of our classes or programs.

One adult must be home to provide active involvement in the home learning for their student on days when they are not on campus in their enrolled class(es). The amount of parent involvement at home varies depending on the course and instructor, as well as individual differences among students.

Circle desires to support each household in growing students in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Circle expects students and parents to covenant with the school by faithfully fulfilling all their responsibilities and complying with all school deadlines, financial commitments, policies, and procedures
