We are a premier school specializing in preschool, elementary, and after-school care located in Smyrna, Tennessee.

Community Christian is licensed by the Tennessee Department of Education as a Category 1 Private School. Preschool consists of infants through pre-kindergarten. Elementary consists of kindergarten through sixth grade. After-School care is available for kindergarten through fifth grade (sixth grade for Community Christian elementary students). Community Christian was established in 2009 as a preschool. As the need for additional age groups was presented, we expanded our programs to offer elementary and after-school care. Through our experience, we have seen children grow in Christ as well as developing essential skills and knowledge to continue their growth. 


Who We Are

Childhood is the major foundational time for intellectual and spiritual growth. At Community Christian, each of our age groups are presented superior quality of academic curriculum as well as a Biblical curriculum. The students have a strong balanced schedule to discover, explore, and play in addition to the learning environment.



We place great emphasis on the individuality of each child. Our program provides the opportunity for your child to develop at their own pace in a loving & secure environment. 


Each class has teachers with a current State of Tennessee license and a low pupil teacher ratio. The A Beka curriculum, which is noted for its strong academic base, is taught.

After School

Our program offers a balance of student-directed and teacher-directed activities. The afternoon schedule allows the students the flexibility of choice.
