History of CCS
Conestoga Christian School was begun in 1952 by a group of parents from Conestoga Mennonite Church. That first year approximately twenty-two students studied in a rented school building.
On August 26, 1953, the Conestoga Christian Day School Association was chartered as a non-profit organization in Pennsylvania. A new building was constructed containing two rooms. The school had two teachers for grades one through nine. As the enrollment increased, more rooms were added to the first building, and in 1963 an elementary classroom building was erected.
In 1974 another building program was completed, adding four additional classrooms to the elementary building. A gymnasium/auditorium area, including classrooms, kitchen, stage, locker rooms, and library, was completed in 1988.
In 2005 the school completed a new high school wing including high school classrooms, a middle school science room, a new computer lab, and centralized office areas. Since that time, many improvements have been made to the campus including adding air conditioning and a new sound system in the gymnasium/auditorium. We look forward to expanding even more. Check out the Capital Campaign page to see what our plans are for the future.
After more than 65 years, the mission of our school to educate the whole student - body, mind and spirit - for God has not changed.
