I cannot say enough good things about this school. The class sizes are small, the staff is caring and dedicated. They have a diverse population, international exchange students, and a Christian environment. Both of my daughters left high-achieving HoCo public schools to attend Chapelgate. My oldest put it best "I have met some nice enough people in my (previous) school, but this is the first time I am meeting kids who are KIND." Our entire family has benefitted from this change.

I have loved CCA since my oldest asked to attend there for high school. Since then all three of my children have graduated or are currently attending. The teachers are committed to a high quality of instruction and an even higher level of care and encouragement. The college preparation is amazing. My daughter is doing very well at UMD having been challenged to a high level. I feel that the teachers and staff know each of my kids and are deeply committed to their success academically. They encourage them spiritually as well. My children have also been given athletic opportunities that they might not have taken at another school. And they have made friendships that will last a lifetime. It is a gem of a school.

We were very pleased with our child's experience. Small class sizes and very caring teachers. School is small but diverse, and there is a strong Christian presence there.
