Community Baptist Church started Community Christian School in the fall of 1968. Enrollment quickly grew from fifty-seven students to over three hundred students. The kindergarten and elementary building was completed for the 1970-1971 school year. The Carolyn Musgrave Fellowship Hall was completed in 1976. The office and administration building and classrooms were completed in April 1981. Our present auditorium and classroom complex was completed in March 1985. The baseball and soccer complex was completed that same year. In 2017, major renovation on the gymnasium/cafeteria complex and construction on the new administration building were completed.
The school is situated on a forty-acre campus in the heart of tropical Bradenton, Florida, and affords students over twenty classrooms, a 250-seat cafeteria, baseball and soccer fields, a 500-seat gymnasium, outdoor basketball courts, and a science laboratory. In 2012, CCS added smartboard technology and iPad access to each of its elementary and secondary classrooms. In 2013, CCS added a full-time resource teacher to assist students with exceptional needs.
