Central Private School, founded in 1967, is an independent college preparatory school with a tradition of excellence in education. CPS graduates are well-prepared for the world beyond secondary school, with 99% of graduates attending college. The five-year average ACT score is 23, and at least 70% of graduates qualify for TOPS. In the grades K-8, students consistently score 1-3 levels above their national median grade equivalents on the Stanford 10.
CPS is committed to preparing students for the future in a safe, nurturing Christian environment in which students are encouraged to grow, share, and learn with a faculty dedicated to academic excellence. We offer an accelerated college preparatory curriculum wherein students are encouraged to pursue individual interests, excel beyond basic academic standards, and achieve success as productive members of the community.
