Cascade Christian Schools is dedicated to helping students explore and discover their God-given potential.


    Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments are the common assessments used by the district (grades K-11) to measure student academic growth in reading, language, math, and science at the district level, the campus level, the grade level, the classroom level, and the individual student level. These tests are administered three times during the year. This data drives our district’s strategic plan in the area of academics.

    At the campus level, the MAP results help each vertical team establish goals. These assessments also aid teachers in setting classroom goals and the Educational Roadmap in charting each student’s growth.

    We are an independent, interdenominational school district serving childcare through grade twelve, where students are provided excellent academics with a biblical worldview, character development and leadership training opportunities, and encouragement in cultivating a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

    We serve a wide diversity of communities in Pierce County with campuses in Frederickson, Puyallup, and rural Sumner/Orting, including three early learning centers, three elementary schools, a junior high, and a high school. Our current enrollment is almost 1,800 students—infants through high school.

    Cascade Christian Schools is approved by the Washington State Board of Education and accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) in partnership with Cognia (formerly AdvancED), a national accreditation organization. Cascade Christian Schools is also affiliated with the Washington Federation of Independent Schools (WFIS).

    Cascade Christian Schools’ early learning centers and recreation programs are affiliated with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and with Clover Park Technical College for staff training. The Extended Recreation Department also receives training and professional development opportunities through its memberships in the National AfterSchool Association, School’s Out Washington, and the National Recreation and Park Association.

    The Washington State Department of Children, Youth, and Families licenses Cascade Christian Schools’ Puyallup and Frederickson Early Learning Centers, both of which operate within the requirements set by that department. Additionally, our Puyallup and Frederickson Early Learning Centers participate in Early Achievers, Washington’s quality rating and improvement system (QRIS) administered by the Department of Early Learning. As an Early Achievers participant, we are demonstrating our commitment to offering high-quality childcare and promoting school readiness.

Preparing Our Students for the Future ...

Cascade Christian’s junior high and high school Technology Department recognizes the increasingly important role that technology plays in the lives of our students and in the lives of everyone in our community. It keeps us connected to one another, helps us learn, and can fuel our passions. The Technology Department collaborates with teachers, administrators, and students to enhance everyone’s academic, extracurricular, and social experience, and to prepare our students for success in college and beyond.

Cascade Christian is proud to offer an exciting venture that gives all secondary students access to a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 with a keyboard and pen. We believe that a one-to-one device program enables us to better provide all students with a technological tool that will enhance their learning and achievement. This tool affords them greater opportunities to be productive students and citizens as they enter a global environment that will require greater technology skills, collaboration, and teamwork.

The individual use of the Surface Pro 4 device is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for college and the workplace. Technology does not diminish the role of the teacher, but it enhances the teacher’s ability to engage students and to facilitate learning. Effective teaching and learning with these devices integrate technology into the curriculum anytime, anywhere.

All staff and students have access to Office 365 for Education and can download the Office 2016 suite on up to five of their own devices.
