CASCADE CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL
Cascade Christian High School (CCHS) operates as a part of Grace Cascade Christian Schools (GCCS), an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit Christian school system, specializing in training young people in grades nine through twelve to be Christ-centered, productive believers through the teaching of the Word of God and by example, in harmony with and supporting the Christian home.
All academics will be taught from a Biblical worldview, with an emphasis on each individual’s personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, since our ultimate purpose is to be like Him (Romans 8.28-30).
We are proud to announce that over 1,465 graduates have walked across the Cascade Christian High School stage to receive their diploma since the first graduating class in 1981.

Cascade Christian High School is a Closed Campus* which means students are required to remain on campus once they arrive unless signed out through the office by a parent or guardian.
*Senior Off-Campus Lunch
Seniors are allowed the privilege of going off campus for lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This privilege is based on the student’s behavior and academic standing. Students are required to turn in a permission slip prior to being allowed this privilege. Students lunching off-campus must check out at the school office before leaving campus and check back in at the student office upon their return. They must be in class at the beginning of the next period. Failure to follow these instructions will result in disciplinary action and/or loss of the privilege. Juniors may, at the discretion of the administration, earn the privilege of Thursday off-campus lunch after the first quarter.
Early release time is a privilege for upperclassmen that is based on the student’s behavior and academic standing. A written request must be turned into the Assistant Principal for approval. Because of assembly schedules, the early dismissal times will vary. Early release students must not disturb classes that are still in session.

Statement of Non-Discrimination
Grace Cascade Christian Schools does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, color or national/ethnic origin in the administration of admissions and/or educational policies. As a religious, private institution, however, it does screen students on the basis of academic ability, conduct, and compatibility with the religious goals, purpose, resources, and philosophy of the school. As a discipleship school, Grace Cascade Christian Schools does seek to enroll students from families who are actively involved in a Bible-believing local church which supports the Grace Cascade Schools’ Statement of Faith. However, families are evaluated on an individual basis and those who are open to seeking God’s truth and learning more about Him may be considered for enrollment as well.
