Mission Statement

Recognizing that our world requires men and women who can effectively integrate God's Truth in every area of their lives, we exist to provide a nurturing environment where students can flourish academically, spiritually, socially and physically, and where strong relationships with the family, church and community can be developed that are based on God's Word, His love and compassion.

Vision Statement

The vision of our school includes the building of strong relationships with family, church, and community based on God's Word, his love and compassion. We have been rewarded with outstanding support in this area, continuing the accomplishments of those who saw the positive impact CHBCS would have on young lives, and dedicating ourselves to achieving that end as well. Our commitment as a school is to hold to the ideals upon which it was established and to accept the challenge of providing a strong Christian academic education which will positively impact our community, the nation, and even the world for Jesus Christ.

History of CHBCS

Cedar Hills Baptist Christian School was established in 1972 by a church leadership that saw a need to establish an environment for Christ-centered education. Rev. Jim Young was the pastor that encouraged the church body in the funding of a school dedicated to academic excellence and grounded in Christian principles. Mr. Tom McGriff, school board chairman, was an enthusiastic leader who worked to establish a strong organizational foundation for the school to build on. The school opened in August of 1972 with Mr. Dale Young serving as its first principal. The school opened with 250 students in preschool through 7th grade. Mr. John Ferris became the principal in 1973, followed by Mr. Wayne McClain in 1975. Mrs. Sue Andrews served as interim principal from April through June of 1977, when Mr. Gary Brookshire was hired as principal. He continued to serve the school until 1997. Mrs. Judy Pugh took over initially as interim, and then as principal in 1997, and she served the school faithfully until August of 2017, when she went home to be with the Lord. Pastor Jerry Rowell assumed the position in the interim, and Mr. John Marshman was hired to lead the school heading into its 47th year.
