I highly recommend CRCA my son has been there since K4 and now is in 11th grade. I like that there is more time for one on one with a teacher and student. I would like to give my blessing to Mrs. Phipps, a wonderful teacher and person that is always in my thoughts and prayers. I am blessed to have the opportunity to be able to afford to send my son to this school.

I highly recommend this school as it provides an excellent education for students. The teachers all have college degrees and are dedicated to the task at hand of educating children and teens in the four-year-old kindergarten through grade 12. They actually teach, not just give tests.
