Colorado Christian Academy

CCA provides a Christ-centered PreK-8th grade education like no other. Believing that each child can perform their best when they are healthy spiritually, physically, and mentally, we implement a whole-child approach that focuses on identity development in Christ, health and wellness and excellent academics.
Our vision is to see every student become resilient leaders sustained in Christ.
Our education model allows us to engage and challenge advanced students while encouraging and elevating students who have fallen behind.
We prioritize a solid foundation in English, writing, and arithmetic while also creating space for Spanish, performing arts, music, fine arts, entrepreneurial leadership and innovation, and speed and strength training.
In the morning, when students are most capable to learn, we work hard on core subjects and fundamental skills. In the afternoon, they participate in co-curricular learning and activities. Students can also enroll full or part-time.
Every Friday is set aside to enrich and promote deeper learning through review, practice, excursions, projects, and simulations.
Throughout each day, students participate in movement activities that stimulate their brains by moving their bodies.

My girls have been attending CCA for 1 year and we couldn't be happier. The teachers are so excellent and you can tell they love teaching and love the kids. We love how much Christ-centered values are taught and how to find their identity in Christ. We look forward to our children going to CCA through middle school.

I have two children who attend CCA. They have been with the school since day one. CCA has been a blessing to each of my kids in many ways. The teachers are outstanding, they meet the kids where they are and know them personally. The curriculum and co-curricular are engaging. The school has a home away from home feeling. It is a family-oriented community, the school partners with the parents and has fun events for everyone all year long. Jesus is the center of the teacher's hearts and is shown in all they do for the students!

My students are nearly midway through their second year at Colorado Christian Academy and we are thrilled at their progress, and the love and attention they have received from the faculty. After a tough year with Covid, and now CRT making its way into our public schools, CCA has made an immense difference in our children`s lives and education. We don`t know where we would be without CCA and we are grateful every day for what they are doing, and how they do it in the image of Christ. The school is surrounded by loving Christian families and we really feel like we`ve found a community with high levels of integrity, honor, and a passion for educating and growing the whole child. Thank you, CCA for the great year!

I homeschool but my children have always been enrolled in an enrichment program. We found CCA's homeschool program and were excited to check it out. We took the tour, met the Principal and we enrolled our youngest (our older children are in High School). What a blessing it has been! Life-changing for my 7th grader. Small class size plus AMAZING teachers = a great environment. I love the focus on God and His works. I was also blown away by the close-knit community of families. Everyone is friendly and supportive. We really love CCA and recommend it to everyone!

We are so grateful for CCA! Our children have been there a few months and have grown at least a year`s worth academically. The families have built such a strong-knit community with very loving and welcoming children. The teachers put a lot of time into figuring out where children are and how to come alongside them to grow with such joy of the challenge. It`s such a relief knowing we can trust what is being down into their heart and minds.

Colorado Christian Academy has been a blessing to our family. My daughter has excelled both academically and socially. The teachers and staff care about the students both academically and personally. Kids are challenged mentally and physically, with movement breaks throughout the day to allow for them to exercise and expel energy to do their best in their school work. A variety of extracurriculars offer so many great experiences. So glad to have found this school.

Colorado Christian Academy is an incredible school with a holistic approach to education. Our three children are thriving at this institution. The whole-child approach focuses on the child`s intellectual, spiritual, and physical well-being. The curriculum is challenging, the faith formation is inspiring and the physical wellness of the child is encouraged through multiple movement breaks and recess throughout the day. We absolutely love flexible Fridays where students are taken on various trips throughout the Denver metro area (hiking, rock climbing, museums, botanical gardens, and zoos - to name just a few of the field trips!).
