Welcome from the Director of Athletics


I believe that a solid, Christian athletic program reinforces the concepts of the Christian world-view and the institution of citizenship. The Cincinnati Christian Schools Department of Athletics works hand-in-hand with academics to develop the best qualities in our student-athletes. I also believe that our partnership with the parents of our student-athletes is a vital aspect of the development of our young peoples’ character and leadership.

The department of athletics at Cincinnati Christian Schools (CCS) provides the student-athlete with the opportunity to grow spiritually and physically, as well as academically, through its interscholastic athletic programs. The purpose of athletics at CCS is to bring a well-rounded, Luke 2:52 experience to the students who participate. We seek to be a dynamic athletic program, distinctive in our commitment to represent Christ, endeavoring to build leaders with Christian character. We strive to impart in our student-athletes integrity, sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, self-sacrifice, willingness to be players in the Kingdom of God, and “to act justly and love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8).

Cincinnati Christian Schools is a full member of the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) and the Miami Valley Conference (MVC), and competes in boys and girls cross country, boys and girls golf, boys and girls soccer, girls volleyball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls bowling, cheerleading, boys and girls swimming, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track and field. Our student-athletes can participate in a variety of OHSAA sanctioned interscholastic programs, as well as intramural programs, from elementary school to high school. In the years to come, CCS Athletics, in partnership with the OHSAA and MVC, will continue to strive to provide student-athletes with the highest quality athletic experience.

We want to continue to change lives through the athletic experience.

Go Cougars!
