Clinton Christian Academy

Clinton Christian Academy was establised in 2000 as a non-denominational private Christian elementary and middle school located in Clinton Missouri. In the fall of 2016 CCA decided to add high school grades beginning in the 2017-18 school year, starting with 9th grade and adding a grade each year. Our first graduating class will be in May of 2020. Clinton Christian Academy's mission is to reinstate Christian principles in the educating of our children through a Christian-based education that is centered in the Bible, fosters a Christ-centered life, and develops a God-centered Biblical worldview. This will be accomplished through a combination of Christian Teachers, an aggressive academic curriculum, and parents who choose for their family and their children to be exposed to the saving knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ in an environment of love and discipline.

  • Our motto: We are preparing hearts and minds to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
  • The four main goals of Christian Principles and Character are to instill and develop: 1) A Love for God, 2) A Love for Learning, 3) A Love for Others, and 4)  A Love for Country.
  • The four main goals of Christ Centered Academic Excellence are to: 1) Provide a safe, loving, nurturing, and Christian environment, 2) Develop a God-centered and Biblical worldview, 3) Develop the ability to think creatively and critically, and 4) Partner with the home and the church in training the child.

This school offers a rigorous academic curriculum with solid christian values and bible being integrated into every area. The staff, students, and parents are a family here. The small class size allows all students to actively participate in sports, clubs, fine arts, contests, presentations, etc. Every child and parent truly matters at this school!
