Welcome to
Country Christian Schools


Pastor Tom Axmaker, Principal

Founded on the vision of Patricia Syphard more than 40 years ago, Country Christian has been providing academic excellence in a Christian environment. The students are encouraged to take a stand in faith that impacts their generation. The opportunities for students to expand their horizons at Country Christian are many and varied. From volunteerism in the community, demonstrating academic prowess in scholasticism, to the clubs (Student Council, Key Club, and National Honor Society), and sports offered at Country Christian, students are transformed into well-prepared adults that have been molded by God and cast into the streams of God’s purposes for their lives.

AdvancED accredits Country Christian affording those who graduate a seal of accommodation validating the significance of their achievement. Because of this, Country Christian is represented in many colleges throughout our country in varying fields of study.

The sports programs at Country Christian have grown into no small thing. We compete in OSAA 1A level athletics and have enjoyed success in the elite levels of state competition. These successes are related to the breadth of sports programs. Opportunities that reach down into the grade school levels provide instruction and coordination at the foundational levels.

Once again, thank you for your interest in Country Christian, and let us have a great school year.


2 Timothy 2:2  “…Commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”


Our Mission

Country Christian Schools, a ministry outreach of The Country Church, are committed to providing quality Christ-centered education to students. Country Christian Schools consist of Preschool, Primary School, Elementary School, Junior High School, and High School. Our responsibility begins with a concern for each individual’s relationship with Jesus Christ. We are committed to helping students develop personal beliefs and standards based on God’s Word, so those values and principles can be applied to any situation or circumstance. High academic standards in an environment conducive to learning, coupled with a faculty committed to helping each student reach full potential, characterize our schools.


Our Goals

  • To fulfill the scriptural command, "Train up a child in the way he should go..." (Pro. 22:6).
  • To assist each student in developing spiritual awareness that will lead to an acceptance of Jesus Christ as his/her personal Savior.
  • To help each child develop a practical knowledge of the Word of God and apply it to his/her personal life.
  • To ensure that each learner has acquired the knowledge and skills which qualify him/her for promotion to the next grade.
  • To prepare high school graduates to function as effective citizens within the context of a Christ-centered life.
  • To provide a safe and secure environment for all children and minors entrusted to our care.


Statement of Nondiscrimination

The Country Church and Country Christian shall have a racially nondiscriminatory policy and, therefore, shall not discriminate against members, applicants, students, and others based on race, color, or national or ethnic origin. All Country Christian students are afforded the rights, privileges, programs, and activities presented by the schools.

Special Needs

Country Christian is not equipped for special needs students and IEPs. However, if a student can function within the typical classroom and complete the regular course work, we will consider working with them and their parents. Each situation will be evaluated individually by the principal and teachers.

Immunization Records

In accordance with Oregon law, all schools in the state are required to post the immunization and exemption rates for their facilities and the local community.
