School Reviews

Columbus Christian Academy is an amazing school. The faculty is second to none & the Christian environment is unprecedented. CCA is fully accredited and the education is excellent. Last year there was approximately 2.3 million dollars in scholarships awarded to the senior class, WOW. The school has such an outward focus on ministry for our students and their families. We have 3 kids that attend and love their school. The athletics are great, football, basketball , baseball, soccer, track and a new golf team offers my kids all the opportunities to compete and have fun. The AA MIAS classification is very competitive. Having said all that my wife and I are grateful for the spiritual standards of the faculty, coaches & administrators. We are looking forward to many more years as part of the CCA family.
