Founded in 1964, Seminole Presbyterian School joined the Tampa community in Christian Education. Today, Cambridge Christian School has become a premier Christian school in the greater Tampa area. As an evangelistic school, Cambridge seeks to raise future leaders who academically, socially, and spiritually can serve the local and global community. Cambridge is committed to providing a research-based education utilizing best practices to teach 21st-century skills. However, the learning extends beyond the classroom to an abundance of academic extracurricular opportunities and competitions that promote collaboration and critical thinking. Cambridge is blessed with gifted and passionate teachers and an administration that model life for our students, love our students, and desire to know our students beyond the classroom.

At Cambridge, you will encounter an environment where rigorous academics and high achievement are valued, but where a balance is created by intentional relationships between staff, parents, and students. While our staff is continually encouraged to promote student academic achievement, our greatest triumph is embodied in the student that knows Christ. Students are taught to engage culture and confront it when so led. Through our Christian Student Leadership Council, students are trained on the importance of servant leadership and provided practical opportunities for application. We believe the best way to learn how to lead is through serving. Our students are given opportunities to serve their peers as well as local and global communities.

Cambridge is about serving Christ through excellence, at every level. When you attend Cambridge, it is a full family experience and it will transform the way you think about education!
