About Our School

Organizational Government

Quad Cities Christian Schools are governed by an Advisory Council of 8 voting members including the principal as well as parents and alumni from both campuses.  The Advisory Council is overseen by the QCCS School Board. The Advisory Council and the School Board meet monthly to pray, to develop and approve school policies, to oversee the operating budget and the distribution of funds, to assist the school administration in the operation of the school, and to oversee the overall program.

QCCS is a nondenominational School supported by various Quad City churches.  Facilities and support from MGT New Hope play a vital role in this outreach to the wider community.

History of QCCS

In 1977, Dr Charles Hollis, pastor of the Moline Gospel Temple, started Temple Christian Academy, grades Pre-K-12. The school grew and prospered under his leadership. In 2004 the school governing body decided to discontinue grades 7-12. The High School parents desired to see the secondary education continue. So a parent-governed school was formed and Quad Cities Christian School was born. The first two years, 2004-2006, the Salvation Army aided QCCS by renting us space. In June 2006 a new building was purchased. In 2011 we purchased the former Black Hawk Elementary school building allowing for more growth. After extensive work by school families, friends and volunteers we moved into our new location in November 2011. In early 2017, Quad Cities Christian School and Temple Christian School completed a merger to reunite the two schools together. Between the two campuses, we are now able to offer a quality Christian education to students from Preschool through 12th grade.

Opportunities for Homeschoolers at QCCS

Students who are homeschooled can enroll in classes as a half time student or as a part time student. Half time students participate in academic core classes: Math, English, History, Science and Bible. Part time students participate in Monday through Friday Band or Choir. These are the only classes available part time. Sports are available to homeschoolers who test with QCCS or attend chapel services.
