We looked at most of the private christian schools in the area. We decided on CCA because of their core values, disapline, and that it was K-12th grade. We didint want to move our children after 8th grade to public school. Our first child is now in the 2nd grade and our second will be starting next year. We love the school, teachers, faculty and children of CCA.

The school has excellent teachers, staff and parents who focus on utilizing classical teaching methods to educate children and develop a student with a love of Christ and a love of learning that is infused with a biblical truth in all subjects. The school's academic success is proven in its graduates excellent test scores.

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.
