School Reviews

When moving to the Denver/Westminster area four years ago, one of my wife and I's top priorities was finding a private Christian school where our daughter would attend. We visited CCA on the 2nd school visit and looked no further. Our daughter attended CCA all four years and would could not be happier with the experience she had and they way the school approached her education. Our daughter was involved in all aspects of CCA programs and I truly believe the Christ centered education has benefitted her and will have a profound impact on her life going forward now that she will be entering college. Thank you so much CCA!!

We would be very interested in sharing this with all of your High School Students. We have a contract with Adams 12 Star five School District. We are very close to your campus. You can reach me at 303-455-312 or 720-972-4231. I would be very happy to discuss what we cn offer your students.

We have 3 young boys in CCA (5th, 6th and 8th grade) and have been attending for a six years now. When we found CCA, we were looking for a change from public schools because the public school didn''t provide what we were looking for in terms of flexibility for students who learn at different pacing (one of our boys is a grade ahead in math) while another has issues with reading and needs extra help. We instantly fell in love with the family atmosphere of CCA, the small class sizes, and the emphasis on building character. CCA has a strong focus on equipping students for greatness. The staff, teachers, and administrators are all top caliber! They provide an excellent education and genuinely care about each and every student. We are extremely happy with our decision to attend CCA and now we can''t imagine our kids being enrolled anywhere else and neither can our boys. They are already talking about when they will graduate from High School at CCA. I would strongly recommend considering CCA if you are looking for a positive change.
