The Lancer Legacy I want to leave is an environment that trains students to use all areas of their life to glorify The Lord. Whether it is performing in the spring musical, playing football or serving as an Ambassador, students can learn to use all of their talents to serve The Lord.

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

1 Corinthians 10:31

Both have been at Cambridge Christian since K-4 and Mr. Rey attended Seminole Presbyterian until 8th grade. Both are “life-long Cambridge Christian Lancers!”

I have seen first-hand what a CCS education can do with a child. In concert with our family and our church, CCS completes the third leg of the effort to raise up Christ centered worldview adults. Our daughter is a product of that three prong effort!

The Lancer Legacy is guiding youth to be disciples for the Kingdom in their daily walk. This is accomplished through leading by example in the classroom, as well as in the arts, and on the athletic fields. The college preparatory school years will have a lasting impression on each and every student and I know the positive influence Cambridge provides. The Lancer Legacy is alive and well both on campus and in the families supporting the school.

The Lancer Legacy is something I don’t take lightly. Tracey and I have been Lancer Parents and volunteers for over 15 years now and have been involved in many different aspects of the school. We have had and will always have a great passion and heart for the school from where it was, to where it is, to where we know it can get to with God in the center of it ALL! It already means so much to us to have been a part of such a great group of teachers, faculty, parents, and students. We all realize how blessed we truly are to be part of a school with such a strong foundation.

The Lancer Legacy is about developing the next generation of Christian leaders. Christ gave us the greatest examples of servant leadership as He walked this earth and ultimately gave up His life in exchange for ours. Our students at Cambridge get the unique opportunity to learn in an environment that promotes academic excellence in the context of the truth of the Gospel.  As they learn to live out the Gospel in all aspects of life, they will become set apart from the rest of this world in a way that honors and glorifies Christ. What better training ground is there for the leaders of tomorrow?
