CDCA is an amazing school. Along with the academics, the school focuses also on God's amazing love. The teachers are so caring about the needs of individual students as well as how they work collectively. The teacher student ratio is very beneficial to the children. My daughter is finishing up Kindergarten. There are 10 students with a teacher and teacher's aid. I am very particular about the education she receives. We started out the year at a different Christian school, which did not meet our needs appropriately. We switched to CDCA and she is thriving. She loves her teachers and classmates, and is doing well in school. Mostly, her faith has grown immensely. If you are looking for a school for your child, I cannot recommend this school enough.

I attended CDCA for ten years (pre-K - 8th grade); loved the school, principal, and environment. The best education that can be found in this area. Upon graduating all of my SAT score were post high school. There is no other option in my mind on where my child will attend school. The only down side of CDCA is that they do not have a sports program for older students, but I feel that the benefits of the education are far more important, and my siblings and I were active in sport outside the school. The foundation provided has led to bright futures for myself and fellow graduates.

We have two children in the school. Preschool and First grade. We love the amount of time spent on teaching the values of the bible. Also the fact that the students test well above grade level average.

CDCA provides an amazing education grounded in the Lord. The administration truly loves the children and strives to continually provide the best to every child. It's a safe, fun, Christ-centered, awesome education and it's affordable. The student to teacher ratio is small and ensures your child does not get overlooked. My children have been there for 5 years and will stay until they graduate. God is working in this school.

My son has attended this school since Pre-K, and is currently in 4th grader. His work is excellent, his SAT are 2-6 years above average. The teachers are wonderful, classes are small - an extended Christian family.

The education can't be beat at CDCA. The teachers are wonderful and very caring about the children. This is my daughters 3rd year and she is in the 2nd grade and loves it there. You can't always judge a book by it's cover, the school isn't huge but what you get out of it is great.

This is my 2nd grader's 3rd year at CDCA and we will stay all the way through. The small class size and family atmosphere is exactly what we need!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
