At Central Baptist, Our Promise to you with your support is to provide Spiritual and Academic Training that will enable students to pursue God’s calling for their life though the Power of Christ.

We feel we have the perfect blend of curriculums to facilitate the best possible academic success. The main curriculums are A Beka, ACSI and Glencoe. The honors program in the middle school will allow students to complete high school courses in Math and Science. Students are challenged to excel through supplemental programs in math, reading and Florida Virtual School. Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year CBCS  added a High School with 9th through 12th grades. We support dual enrollment with HCC.

Striving For Excellence In Academics And Faith.

Distinctly Christian, Academically Excellent, Service Minded

                               We Are Central!

Central Baptist Christian School has been in the process of Accreditation for the past few years. This process culminated in May 2012 with our Middle School and High School being granted " Accredited" status through ACTS ( Association of Christian Teachers and Schools) and NCPSA (National Council of Private School Accreditation). As of 2017 all grades are now accredited through ACTS. In addition to those Accreditations, CBCS will be positioned to gain regional Accreditation status with Middle States Accreditation Commission. We will then also be Accredited by the CSF ( Christian Schools of Florida ) which will allow us to participate in High School sports at the appropriate level for our school. CBCS is an active member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), Hillsborough County Christian Educators Association, and Florida Association of Southern Baptist Schools and Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools (SBACS).

Scrip Available

The school has a great fund raising plan and it doesn't cost you anything but a few minutes of your time and some planning. Across the country schools raise money through a program called "Scrip".  In fact some schools do so well with their scrip program that they don't do any other fund raisers! Merchants and businesses want to encourage education so they participate in scrip. They will donate back a portion of their profit's when a gift card to their business is used. Gift cards are available for  just about anything you normally purchase. The gift cards come in varied values and for a great many different businesses. You can see a partial list if you click on the link below. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. Scrip is available at the school and at our church events like our monthly lunches.

 ..\Ethics In Education  Update.pdf



Central has such a loving family atmosphere. My children love to go to school now. I feel so blessed to be a part of this ministry. Christ is the center of everything here.


There are so many extra curricular activities at Central. My children are involved in sports, band and drama right here on campus. The programs are so well organized and always with a loving Christ like approach.
I taught at another Christian school before coming to Central. One of the biggest differences I noticed was at the other school students behaved out of fear of the consequences and at Central students behaved out of love and respect for their teacher.

Youth's In Christ's Service

Youth's In Service

Hire a youth!  Are you tired and worn out from the hustle and bustle( what's a bustle?) of the work week? Do you just need a lazy Saturday with nothing to do but tell young people what to do and actually have them do it? Then hire a teenager! They'll get'er done! Baby sittin', yard work, tree trimmin, leaf harvesting, cotton pickin, car/dish/dog washin' teens! You name it they'll do it provided it's legal and mostly safe. All money raised helps send them to Word of Life Youth Camp. If they collect enough they will bring them back too. See Pastor West or Evan West or Mandy Sherill and they will connect you with one or more of the  youth's  going to camp.



Great Women Of Our Faith

Lottie Moon was a Baptist missionary to China in the 1800's. She gave her life for the Chinese people she was ministering to giving up her own food to the less fortunate. Annie Armstrong  was a friend  and collected money to help support Lottie Moon and others mission efforts. That is where the Lottie Moon Christmas offering for foreign missions came from that we participate in even to this  day.

Annie Armstrong

Around Easter Southern Baptists collect a special offering for  North American Missions. This is the Annie Armstrong offering. Annie Walker Armstrong (1850-1938) was a Southern Baptist believer who was very active in the Women's Missionary Union of the Southern Baptist Church and helped to organize that organization as an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention. She was instrumental in organizing donations for the first Lottie Moon Christmas offering for Foreign Missions. She also promoted organizations for encouraging African American Baptist Women. Annie Armstrong is another example of how women of the Southern Baptist Church have been the backbone of our denomination, as they are to this day, as they labor to share the Gospel at home and around the world.
