In 1995, the membership of Fellowship Bible Church had a dream to open a Christian school in Lancaster that would provide students world-class academics, a nurturing safe-haven in which to fourish, and a Biblical foundation on which to build solid lives, marriages, and home.
On September 2, 1996, Carolina Christian Academy opened its doors to ages three through grade twelve.
Today, that dream has become a reality.
CCA ranks as the number two school in South Carolina on the SAT-10, a test taken annually by millions of students.
CCA's five-year-old kindergargarten through twelfth grade outscored the nation by an average of 42 points, ranking CCA's students academically among the top eight percent in the nation.
This was good enough to rank CCA as the second highest scoring school within the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools, the association that accredits CCA.
