CCS History

Columbia Christian School was founded in 1998 as a ministry of First Baptist Church of Magnolia, Arkansas, under the leadership of Pastor David Watkins. Mr. John Steelman was hired as the administrator.

In 2000, an Upper School building was added to our campus. A new science lab and computer lab soon followed. Twenty-three additional acres of land were purchased in 2001.

In January 2006, the Board of Directors adopted a new building program. This phase ended with the completion of our Early Childhood Education Center in August of 2006.

August 2007 saw the completion of a new Middle School building.

In the fall of 2011, our CCS multi-purpose complex was completed. This is a 60,000 square foot building that serves as our gymnasium, full service cafeteria, College Academic Experience (CAE) and music classrooms.

In 2012, Dr. Marla Strecker became the Executive Director of CCS.

In 2013, Dr. Richard Britt became the Superintendent of CCS.

in 2016, Mr. Ted Waller became the Superintendent of CCS

CCS currently has 211 total enrollment and 62 staff.
