Country Christian School

Equipping Students to Blend Christian Character with Academic Excellence

Key Club International

Key Club International is the oldest and largest service program for high school students in the world. It is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through service to others. Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.


The Country Christian Key Club has produced more international and community level leaders than any school in the world. Since our club began in January of 2004 we have had students serve: one term as International President, 4 terms as International Trustees and 9 terms as Lt. Governors. We also had a student appointed to the District Board as a “student leadership specialist.”
