My son is an entering kindergartner at Christ Classical Academy. He never went to preschool and I assumed that he may be a little behind for the first few months of school as a result. This has not been the case! After just 4 weeks of school he is already academically surpassing his peers in other schools who had attended preschool. I am so blown away by his progress and his excitement for learning. Not only is he excelling in academics, he is also growing leaps and bounds spiritually and displaying new Christ-like character traits to those around him. I cannot express my gratitude enough to the tremendous teachers, staff and parents that give so much of themselves investing in our precious kids. Thank you Christ Classical Academy!
There is no school in this city that comes close to challenging students like CCA. It is incredible to see how much the children can learn when the bar is set high. The learning is reinforced in everything that they do, so it's not a rigid environment. The kids still have lots of fun, but all the fun activities reinforce what they are learning.
Yes, my children are learning how to respect adults and other students and this has translated into how they behave at home. In fact, we use similar behavior reward charts at home as they have in school to reinforce that we should always do our best no matter where we are.
The level of homework given at CCA is appropriate for the grade level and maturity of its students and rigor of the curriculum. Even in Kindergarten, kids are given homework to supplement classroom instruction - and form a basis of expectation for future years. The homework assignments are also helpful in informing parents about the material being taught to our children.
One of the primary reasons we chose CCA for our daughter was the school’s ability to develop the persistence, grit and determination of its students. The rigor of the classical curriculum initially drew us to CCA. As educators, we see the profound difference in aptitude, skills and abilities among CCA students when compared to children in others schools locally. In addition to the rigorous curriculum, we’ve been impressed with the quality of teaching and support provided by staff. Extra curricular activities like the school-wide spelling bee and Gladiator Challenge further develop grit and determination among CCA students.
CCA develops respect in its students by modeling appropriate behavior between teachers and students and reinforcing it consistently. Students are treated fairly and corrected and disciplined when needed. Like other behaviors and traits we instill in our child, we teach her to respect her classmates and teachers. We work closely with her teachers to ensure that she is respectful of her peers and elders. We appreciate and are impressed with the level of respect taught and modeled by CCA teachers and staff.
