Covenant Christian Academy

  • Covenant Christian Academy is a private Christian school located on the south end of Post Road, midway between Alpharetta and Cumming, Georgia.
  • CCA offers K4 - 12th grades and holds 8 full accreditations, including accreditation from the Georgia Association of Christian Schools (GACS) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
  • The faculty and administration of the academy are devoted to assisting parents as they bring up their children "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." The school's philosophy of education rests upon basic assumptions drawn from the Bible: that Christ is the Source of all truth and knowledge, that Christ is the Creator of all facts, and that the Bible is the inerrant, complete, and all-embracing revelation of God; therefore, the focus of our educational mission is building Christian character to the glory of God.
  • The academy provides a quality education that approaches every subject from a Christ-centered, Bible-based perspective.
  • We believe firmly that " In Christ are hidden all the riches of wisdom and knowledge." (Colossians 2:3).
