School Notes

  • JCA was founded so that families could obtain a Christian education for their children. We believe that the Bible is The Book of Truth and adhere to a traditional, Christian philosophy of education. We hold that Christian education is a mandate from God for the family (Deut. 6:6-9; Prov. 19:27; 22; 6; Matt. 28:18-20).

School Reviews

5  
I went to this school from 2nd to 4th grade and loved it. The teachers were all very nice and friendly. The curriculum was advanced compared to other schools, but easy to understand. The work load was very manageable, too. The school is lacking a library which is a bit of a downer but is manageable since each classroom has a fair amount of books. The gym is very big and nice, too! Go Conquerors!!!
