Welcome!  Cincinnati Christian Schools is delighted to host the ACSI District Spelling Bee for our area. We are looking forward to a great morning of academic competition. Please let us know if there is any way we can assist you.

Parents' Important Notes:

  • Each grade level contest is held in a classroom that is obviously limited in space. This means that only ONE ADULT guest per student is allowed into the room.  
  • If students make it to the final spelldown for 5th - 8th grades, more guests are permitted, as this contest takes place in the Chapel, a much larger space.
  • Cameras/camcorders are permitted during the practice round only.
  • Audio recording of any kind is prohibited.
  • Pagers and cell phones should be turned off in competition rooms.
  • CCS will provide individual name tags for students and judges. They will be organized by school and will be available at the registration tables.
  • CCS will also provide personalized certificates for each participating student.
