Carrollton Christian Academy
5.00 (5 reviews)
- The mission statement of Carrollton Christian Academy is to "develop future leaders through Christ-centered academics, art, and athletics, who choose Character before career, Wisdom beyond scholarship, Service before self and Participation as a way of life." Carrollton Christian Academy is a college preparatory school for grades pre-kindergarten through 12th, but it is much more than a "private school." It is a distinctly Christian school, which strives to equip each student academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually at a reasonable cost.
- The administration, faculty, and staff are committed to integrating Biblical principles into all facets of school life, curricular and extracurricular, and to help students determine God's will for their lives.
- We hold precious our role in preparing students who may be called into full-time ministry, and work diligently to provide a gentle balance of guidance, encouragement, instruction, and example.
- Our continual purpose is to glorify God by offering Him our best.

This school is amazing! The teachers know nearly all the kids (pk-12) by name, the administrators are committed to being known by and communicating with the parents, the academic programs are excellent, and I love that it isn't just Christians who go here (very mission-minded private school).

Are you looking for a school where your child can be nurtured, can be recognized for the individual that he or she is? Are you looking for a school where almost all of the school's teachers (not just his/her teacher) know the kids by name? Are you looking for a school where the parents, teachers, and administration work together to ensure the most successful education, the most well-rounded experience possible for your child? Then you are looking for Carrollton Christian Academy. We have been at CCA for 9 years and have been so thrilled it. My oldest is a history buff, my middle is a math pro, and my youngest is "here for the party" - the teachers have figured this out and work around their unique giftings and challenges to encourage them to flourish. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

We have been extremely impressed with Carrollton Christian Academy as a whole. The students, faculty and staff have been extremely supportive and welcoming to our family. The academics offered to each student rival any courses that a public school would offer. The freedom to teach actual academics versus teaching to a test as the public schools are forced to do allows the teachers the time to delve into subjects in ways that your child will never have the opportunity to experience in public schools. We''re new to private school and our only regret is that we didn't make the change sooner. Our son is receiving a phenomenal education in a Christian environment. It's great to see that each student is allowed the opportunity to be a well rounded individual with all of the academic, athletic and extracurricular activities that are offered at Carrollton Academy. Take the time to give Carrollton Christian Academy a try, you won't be disappointed! -Posted by a Parent

We have been a part of the CCA family for about 5 years now, and We LOVE this school! It is true, all of the teachers and staff know each and every one of the student's name. CCA is a caring environment for our children. The minute you walk in to the school, you are greeted by a warm and friendly staff. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a nurturing environment for their children.

Excellent, loving, Christ-centered, college prep school. Such a noticeable difference than public school, and our daughters will graduate with over a year of college credit.

Part of the private school selection process is financial aid. We point out five issues about which you should be aware.

Changes to the Tax Code in late 2017 included the addition of saving for K-12 private school education to 529 plans. We take a look at what this means for families thinking about private school for their children.
