If the school is still using 'paces' (books where you work at your own pace) for the high school curriculum, I highly recommend that you choose a different school if you would like your child to be challenged and/or be prepared for college. I did not feel that I learned anything my senior year there after being in public school. It is a 'family' type environment, very small school and the mood is upbeat and nice. The teachers are not required to be certified and when I found a mistake in a 'pace', it was difficult for me to explain to the teacher that the score book was wrong because she didn't understand the math problem. As far as learning, unfortunately it was a waste of time for me. I heard the elementary school did switch to the Abecka curriculum which I have been told is very good.

I'm a student at CCCA, it is a great school. Some of the leaders are the most sweetest, loving, funny, and strict people you will ever meet. I know it's a wierd combonation but you'll want to know some of the people here. Some people say that, 'Unfortunatly I'm coming back.' (that is most of my class.) but they are only upset about one thing, in a class the teacher just tells us what to do without explaining it. If that person does she gets us all confused. If your child asks you for help in a certain subject, always try to make some time to try and help them. But we are all very grateful that anotherteacher makes ome time for us to explain it.

I am a current high school student at this school and I enjoy it very much. I don't mind that we have smaller classes because of the fact that the teachers are able to listen to each and every student. I believe that there is more communication between the students and teachers in this school than in most public high schools. The curriculum is challenging to a point that it motivates me to work harder. So any student who is willing for a challenge should definitely think about attending this school.

I am a recent graduate of Calvary Chapel and I must say that I was dissapointed with the lack of college preperation that it offered its seniors in spite of the smaller class sizes and lesser student to teacher ratios in comparison with public schools. I would reccommend the school up until highschool because the lower classes follow the abeka curriculum which is wonderful, but the highschool uses a the equivalent of a stoneage curriculum that leaves no room for challenge with the brighter students as its mostly centered around a 'teach yourself' concept that lacks the structure most students need to excell (after all- thats why you send you kids to private school right?).

This is the place! I was looking for the developement of core values and excellence in education for my children. CCCA provides that and is consistantly evaluating and improving their programs in order to prepare the students for life beyond school. The extra drama and musical programs that my children have been involved in are a powerful witness to my family and have built self confidence in my kids. Each of the High School students are provided a laptop computer and receive training in research, creative writing and operating Microsoft Office. I love the opening exersises each morning where the students lead in Praise and Worship and in short Bible Studies. There is a great student to teacher ratio and there is always extra help available when it is needed. The teachers have truly been a wonderful blessing to us. A+ rating!

This is my daughter's first year at ccca. She was in public school 5 years prior to that.This is a wonderful school! the principal is so personal and so caring. They not only teach your children above grade education, but they teach values. I did not know how my daugter would like going there from a public school, but she comes home in a good mood every day! and any child that can recite the declaration of independence, and bible scripture, the investement is priceless. The smile on my daughter's face and the love for jesus she has is beautiful. If you want a school where you will be able to use the words 'under god' forever, this is the place. You will feel that your child is safe every moment that he or she is there. A+

This is a small school of about 120 students from K4 - 12th grade. Our children have attended CCCA for several years and have done well. Sadly the quality of education and level of discipline at the school has dimished over time. There are no extracurricular activities, a growing number of students don't practice the Christian values they are required to learn, and the efforts to increase the school's physical size always fall short. Teachers are not required to be certified which makes it difficult to pinpoint learning problem when students struggle. Only a few parents volunteer in school activities, while others are given positions with compensation. The Pastor and Principal are working hard but need to focus on the discipline problems and place an emphasis on increasing the quality level of the teachers.

My two daughters are now on their third year at CCCA and I can say we have thoroughly enjoyed this school. No matter what the problem you can reach out and touch everyone for help. Their Christmas and Easter plays are very enjoyable and all of the elementary grades are totally involved, with middle and high school strongly encouraged to participate. The class curriculum is very challenging, and the staff is very warm hearted. They seem to have a 'high' ratio of 'A' and 'B' honor roll students. The school seems to be growing with leaps-and-bounds. We look forward to many more years at CCCA.

I was not sure how much we would like this school until we enrolled our 3 children, ranging from Elementary School to Middle School, but we were pleasantly surprised. Though the High School portion is a little bit lacking (though they are attempting to fix this now) and there are hardly any extracurricular activities, we have been very happy.
