Christian Collegiate Academy is an institution dedicated to developing growth and maturation of the total child spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically.
We believe, teach and therefore strive to educate young people that human knowledge allows us to reach our true potential only when that knowledge is applied to life in light of the truth of God's Word.
CCA is not just another private school. It is first and foremost, a Christian school.
One of the most important purposes for the existence of CCA is to serve Christian families with a school that is as Christian as possible in terms of curriculum, staff, student fellowship, and Biblical instruction.
The mission of CCA is to work hand in hand with the home and the church to provide the environment, instruction and opportunities for service to educate and train leaders for Christ who function successfully in today's church and world.
Our primary objective and purpose is to train students in the knowledge of God and the Christian way of life and to give the student an excellent education.
The personal salvation of each student is our primary goal.

Both of my children have been at CCA since they started school. They've both received an excellent education, in addition to a sold, biblical foundation. CCA is a family, and for us, there's no better school on the entire gulf coast!

CCA is an excellent school! I have three children enrolled there and could not be more satisfied. There is a spirit of excellence in all that they do, as well as a spirit of patriotism. The faculty and staff communicate with you as a parent and work together with you to help your child succeed. CCA is definitely worth the investment!

My child, my family and I all love CCA. The atmosphere is great. Christian principles are at the center of Everything at CCA. The students, teachers, staff and parents are wonderful! If you live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast CCA is where you want your child to be. There is a true family atmosphere at CCA and there are lots of activities outside of the classroom for the students. There is also many opportunities for parents to be involved. The people at CCA are very dedicated and will inspire you. I would tell anyone looking for an awesome Christian school, look no further than CCA.
