School History

Citrus Park Christian was founded as a ministry of the First Baptist Church of Citrus Park. The vision of Pastor Harold Warner was to have a Christian School that was quality but affordable. This philosophy continues today. The first year or operation was 1983 with grades K4 through 6th grade, with about 80 students. Each year a grade was added until it reached 8th grade. By 1997, the church realized a need for a Christian High School in our area and voted to add grades 9-12, one year at a time. Classes necessary for completion of high school were added, along with fine arts and an athletic program. The class of 2001 became our first high school graduating class. We have held state recognized accreditation since 1990 and offers a well rounded college-prep program.

We are very proud of the young men and women who have received their education from CPCS. The graduates are well equipped biblically and academically. Approximately 90% or more attend college. Because CPCS is biblically based in principle and practice, the school’s motto “Every Subject Taught in the Light of God’s Word” is as powerful and true today as it was in 1983.
