Students return to Casper Christian School for second school year
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper Christian School students returned to the classroom on Sept. 1. For the 50 enrolled students, going back to school meant seeing old friends and new faces.
“I really like it here. I always think summer lasts just a little too long, in my opinion. I love all the subjects, I love socializing with students and other like-minded people, so I was really excited walking in the doors today,” said CCS 8th Grade Student Reagan Robbins.
This is the second year the school has been open, but in that time, its student population has doubled.
CCS is a non-denominational Christian school that focuses on incorporating the basic tenants of religion into the school day. According to the school, students are still being prepared for their futures academically and socially.
“This year is going to be a little more intense because the kids will be taking, all of them will be taking, steps up and we really want to have them ready for going off to college and the rigors that they’ll face, not only academically, but also socially. So we want to prepare them for the world that they’re gonna go encounter here in just a few years,” said CCS Head of School Mark Earwood.
As CCS continues to grow, Earwood hopes to continue expanding extracurricular opportunities and plans to one day expand to the point of needing a school campus.
