About Us

Trailhead Christian School is an affordable, private, and Christian elementary school serving the community of Billings, Montana. Originally named Central Acres Christian School in 1957, this school has provided hundreds of students with an excellent education that goes beyond just academics. We realize any school can educate a child to learn how to read or to work through math equations. But we recognize our responsibility to model respect, love, and kindness inside and outside of the classroom.
