The History of CCS


In mid-1991, three church-related schools in Pierce County realized the commonality of their schools’ missions and their shared desire to meet the needs of children. These people of vision from Cascade Christian’s three founding churches (Puyallup First Assembly of God, then Destiny Christian Center; Spanaway Assembly of God, now Sound Life Church of the Assemblies of God; and the People’s Church, now Champions Centre) unified their efforts to launch a new school system.

A year later, in 1992, Cascade Christian Schools was incorporated as an independent, interdenominational school district with a Board of Directors (originally seven members) and Pastors’ Council consisting of the senior pastors of our three founding churches. School was officially in session in the fall of 1993, and in the spring, the Class of 1994 was the first Cascade Christian High School class to graduate.

Today, Cascade Christian Schools, governed by a Board of Trustees, is a thriving school district serving students and families on five campuses throughout Pierce County.
