CCA is an incredible, Christ-centered environment. We are continually impressed with the high quality of education that our daughter is being taught. There is a definite sense of family at this school. We looked at so many other schools before choosing CCA and we are so thankful we made the right choice!

As a mother of an elementary and a high school student I cannot say enough good things about "our" school. If you are looking for a small school where your child will be treated as part of a family, where teachers actually care about your child, where children not only learn academics but also strong leadership and life skills. Then CCA is the school for you. Your child will be challenged to not only learn academics but they actually learn how to think and apply what they have learned. You really owe it to yourself and your child to make an appointment and see what CCA has to offer.

We have moved several times and our son has attended a few private schools. CCA is far superior to those he has attended. I have been amazed at what he is capable of learning if challenged. Academically you cannot ask for more but they are so much more than academics. C.S. Lewis said, 'Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil'. Equal importance is placed on nurturing the spirit with Christian values. What is the point of a great education if you have lost their soul? Dedicated teachers & leaders at this school!

My child is a 3rd grade student, and has been at CCA since Kindergarten. I am continually amazed at what he has learned, and how high ranks in education each year on a national scale. Most importantly, his education is completely Christ-centered, as he is taught how to see God in all his studies. In fact, when he was taught that he was created by God and for His glory alone in the first week of Kindergarten, what more could you possibly ask for?

This school is a community of faith and learning. Teachers are laboring to grow generations of superb boys and girls. It is distinctively Christian, with VERY LOW class ratio's, full time and AFFORDABLE. My children are learning Truth, Beauty, Love, Knowledge, Understanding & Wisdom.

This is an excellent school. It is extremely challenging to the students. They provide a classical christian education including an extensive Latin program beginning in the third grade. It is also very affordable with tuition under $4500 per year.

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.
