School Reviews

CCA is an excellent school! I have three children enrolled there and could not be more satisfied. There is a spirit of excellence in all that they do, as well as a spirit of patriotism. The faculty and staff communicate with you as a parent and work together with you to help your child succeed. CCA is definitely worth the investment!

My child, my family and I all love CCA. The atmosphere is great. Christian principles are at the center of Everything at CCA. The students, teachers, staff and parents are wonderful! If you live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast CCA is where you want your child to be. There is a true family atmosphere at CCA and there are lots of activities outside of the classroom for the students. There is also many opportunities for parents to be involved. The people at CCA are very dedicated and will inspire you. I would tell anyone looking for an awesome Christian school, look no further than CCA.
