Why Choose CCS?


At Charlottesville Catholic School, our fundamental task is educating the whole person, integrating Christian values with learning in daily life. Recognizing the uniqueness and individuality of children, we guide them to discover and develop their God-given gifts.


Charlottesville Catholic School is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the National Catholic Education Association. CCS was awarded the Blue Ribbon Award of Excellence in Education in 2005 by the US Department of Education. CCS Students consistently rank among the highest in the country on standardized tests. We are proud that most CCS graduates move on to perform in advanced level courses with the top 10% of high school students.


A faith filled education begins with the family and grows through the community. School families are encouraged to participate in weekly liturgies and in a variety of community service efforts. Recognizing that our community extends beyond CCS to our local parishes, our students often serve in parish choirs and as altar servers.
