Our Accreditation

Accreditation News!

We are pleased to announce that City Tree Christian School has been granted accreditation renewal through June 30, 2019! This is the best possible term of accreditation and we are thrilled to receive this news. One comment that was made in the accrediting commission's letter was, "This action was taken after a careful study of the visiting committee report, which noted many stellar aspects of the school." Thank you to our fantastic teachers, parents, and students for their dedication and involvement in our school. You all help make City Tree a great place to learn!
