Student Life

At Capital Christian School students have the opportunity to explore and to develop their dreams, talents and passions both inside and outside of the classroom. While CCS offers every student an excellent, college-prep education, students may also participate in a variety of activities that encourage leadership, fun, creativity, social development and a commitment to servanthood.


Our students discover and build lifelong pursuits and friendships as they are involved in activities such as community service, student council, clubs, class retreats and performing arts performances.

“Papa Reber means so much to my family and, in the absence of any extended family in this country, Pops is a surrogate grandparent or crazy uncle,” said Tracey Donlan, who has two children that have been in the Capital Christian band since the third grade. “The band is a reflection of Papa Reber – fun, outgoing, serious about their music and their mission. A crazy fun group of talented musicians.”

Spiritual Life

Capital Christian School is committed to strengthening our students’ relationship with Jesus Christ.


This is done in a clear manner that is reflected throughout our academic departments. Weekly Chapel services, along with a Bible curriculum, combine to focus on teaching the foundations of a strong spiritual walk. Our Spiritual Life Program is committed to doing these things with love, authenticity and biblical integrity.

High School Student Activities

The purpose and rationale for the student activities at the high school level reflects the overall philosophy of the school, emphasizing the growth of the student spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically through experiences that will develop leadership skills, improve physical abilities and strengthen personal character and integrity. In addition to a wide variety and scope of athletic opportunities offered to the students, CCHS offers students the opportunity for participation in the ACSI sponsored speech meet, writing competition, art festival choir and band competitions. Student government sponsors activities such as banquets, homecoming, Sadie Hawkins, rallies and community service activities. Additionally students can participate in outreach mission trips (i.e., Jamaica, Europe and Costa Rica), fine arts trips (i.e., New York and language/cultural trips (i.e., Spain and Guatemala).

The following sample list of activities and events reflects the depth and scope of the extra curricular opportunities CCHS students enjoy under the leadership of our student council and student activities coordinator:

Rallies- Students love participating in the all school rallies. Each class wears their class t-shirt as they “show their school spirit” sitting by grade level in the bleachers of our gymnasium. Often there is competition and cheers led by our own CCHS cheerleaders.

See You at the Pole- Each year students all over the United States join together to pray and worship. CCHS students look forward to this opportunity to meet at the flag pole in the front of the high school to share a time of prayer and thanksgiving together.

New Student Orientation- There are several opportunities for new students to “connect” throughout the school year. One of the highlights is when the student council and the new students meet for a pizza lunch. They learn about student government at CCHS and are given an opportunity to interact with the student leadership team.

Spiritual Emphasis Week- Twice a year, the school as a whole, enjoys the opportunity of having three days set aside during two different weeks, to focus on a spiritual theme. These sessions are led by our student worship team and there are usually special speakers and/or small group times provided for the students. These are special times at CCHS as the students continually desire to draw closer to our Lord.

Banquets- Homecoming, Sadie Hawkins, Winter Banquet and of course the final event, the Junior/Senior Banquet. The Junior/Senior Banquet is always an elegant event. For example, one year the Junior/Senior Banquet was held at the Sacramento Library Galleria; the students waltzed to the music of a string quartet. It was a wonderful, elegant evening for the students.
Homecoming week- During the week preceding the Homecoming Banquet and Homecoming Football game, students dress up according to each themed day and participate in activities during lunch! Points are earned for each event and are totaled with the judge’s points for the class float competition. The class with the most points for the week events wins the Homecoming competition. During this week, students vote for the Homecoming Court. The winners are announced at the Banquet.

Seniors out Serving- This year, the CCHS seniors will set aside a day to go out into the community to serve in parks, soup kitchens, etc., to “give back” to the community. Students and staff work together to serve our community.

Winter Court- Similar to the Homecoming Banquet that is held in the fall, the winter banquet also involves a king and queen and various class competitions.

Character Awards- A ceremony is held in May to honor HS students for outstanding character. Students and staff identify classmates who exhibit outstanding Godly character traits.

Academic and Athletic Awards- Ceremonies are held in May to honor HS students for their academic and athletic achievements.

Blood Drive- Students may participate in a blood drive and receive a free shirt for doing so. This provides another opportunity to “give back” to the community. This event is entirely organized and sponsored by the student council.

Global Missions

Missions Trip to Nicaragua

The global missions class went on a mission trip to Nicaragua from February 15-23, 2020. We partnered with Students International, a Christian mission organization focused on community development and sharing the love of Christ to the poor in Central America.


Each student worked with a missionary throughout the week at various ministry sites. These sites gathered donations that we had the opportunity to bring. Thank you so much joining us in the Lord’s work in Nicaragua. Your generosity was greatly appreciated!
