Carlisle Christian Academy is a fully accredited, non-public, non-denominational Christian, K-12 school located in Carlisle, PA.  But what we now call CCA began as Bethel Assembly of God Day Care and Nursery School in the year 1975. Four years later a new wing of classrooms and a multipurpose gymnasium were added to the church building and we were ready for expansion. In 1981, the Bethel Christian Academy was established for school aged children.

For 14 years the child care and K-8 schooling needs of local christian families could be met on the campus of  Bethel Christian Academy and Bethel Nursery School and Day Care. Over time, the school added a summer camp, which would act as an an on ramp giving parents a glimpse of our offerings. In 2003 the school again broadened its scope when  Bethel Christian Academy expanded to include high school classes. In the subsequent school years since 2003-2004, Bethel Christian Academy grew to include a K-12 program.

Most recently, during the summer of 2006, Bethel Christian Academy became fully independent of Bethel Assembly of God and Bethel Nursery School and Day Care, changing its name to Carlisle Christian Academy, as we call it today. With the Academy`s first ever twelfth grade class graduating in June of 2007, Carlisle Christian Academy is fully equipped to do the work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through providing sound Christian education to the children of South Central Pennsylvania and year round care through its summer programming.

Since the school`s inception in 1981, Carlisle Christian Academy (CCA) has enjoyed growth.  CCA has expanded its offerings as over the years we have added Drama and Art programs, as well as enhanced the Physical Education Department to include athletic opportunities.  In addition, there is marked continual improvement in the academics program with ongoing curriculum development and improvement of the learning environment. As the school moves forward, the leadership focus has continued to be to provide a solid Christian education to the children of South Central Pennsylvania.  Currently, CCA has 108 children enrolled. The school is eager and ready to grow to serve more families.

School Reviews

Our daughter has been enrolled in this Christian based school for 7 years now. We couldn't feel more blessed to have been able to provide this opportunity to her. Scholastic concentration is above any I have ever seen in the area, and the teachers concentrate on each child to make sure their education is progressing at state expectations and higher. Not only is the curriculum exceptional, it is a comforting feeling that the school is based on Christianity and having God be a part of their daily studies. Small classrooms contribute to the fact that no student is overlooked, and allows for close interaction with teacher and other students. Our daughter is planning on graduating from this school with high honors and college credits someday, and continue her education wherever God may take her.

My children have attended CCA since K and are currently in lower and upper elementary. I cannot express the significance of the depth of relationship that's developed at CCA with the amazing teachers and staff. My children are surrounded by experienced, qualified, caring, Christian educators who have a passion for teaching and mentoring youth. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful school community.

Carlisle Christian Academy is a wonderful learning facility that encourages the development of the "whole" student. Our children, some who are now adults, will tell you that their time at the school not only prepared them for college, but also played a significant role in their spiritual growth in the Lord. Our family thanks CCA for their diligence in providing an excellent education for the kids we have entrusted to their care.
