This is my daughter's first year at CCA and she is a Sophmore. She had been at another Christian school for 6 years that had to close. It was very important to our family to continue her education at a Christian school. CCA has a strong Christian foundation and had all the qualities we were looking for in a school. The environment at CCA has been very welcoming. My daughter has enjoyed her first semester at CCA and we are very pleased. My daughter has progressed well at CCA and I appreciate the willingness of the teachers to help the students.

My girls have been at the school for two years, and they absolutely love the environment. They are always talking about their friends, and they both have loved their teachers. The leadership and teachers are always willing to address any academic concerns that we have, and this is largely due to their down to earth character. Thank you CCA for being part of our family, and assisting us in raising our children to love God and love others.

We love the environment at CCA and the ABEKA curriculum. It is a small community where the teachers treat the kids like family. As more programs are being added (STEM), the kids continue to be challenged academically. There is always two way communication with teachers, administration and parents. We highly recommend CCA!

My daughter is a new 4th grade student. We have been pleased with the warm welcome we have received. The academics are challenging and I see her growing and stretching to meet the challenge. Her teachers are approachable and supportive. I' am most impressed with their commitment to character development and love that the school is Christ Centered.

My boys have been here since K4 and now are in 5th and 7th grades. They are flourishing here and love the environment. I love the teachers, academics, spiritual and balanced offerings of 'electives'. The teachers are amazing and are there for the students. They treat each child like their own. They are willing to work in partnership with parents to do everything to ensure their child's success. The wonderful offerings of missionary work and retreats that the students are a part of, are truly life changing. They are not only teaching academics and spiritual growth but important life skills too. Love it!
