Christian Collegiate Academy1

My children were very unhappy at CCA. The curriculum was boring and required only rote memory. There was no analysis or higher level thinking required in any middle school or high school subject that my children took. The teaching was substandard with an emphasis on reading the textbooks and filling in worksheets. My children were getting good grades, but were complaining about not being pushed to think and learn. The school suffers from a serious lack of equipment. Although my child was supposed to have a computer class, there were not enough working computers for the class until the second quarter of the year. There also appears to be some leadership issues at this school because in the year that my children were there, 3 different teachers left midyear. In any business this is a troubling sign; but especially in a school.
Great school! We have two kids going there. Both have been there since k4. My oldest is now in 8th grade. The teachers there are wonderful! Very loving , caring, family environment with a lot of focus on advanced education.
This school is Great! Teachers and Staff really care about their students. Tons of activities for the kids to be involved in and was nice to have my daughter involved in Gym every day. She said her favorite part of the school is the small class sizes, the awesome school lunches and Gym. I wish every state had this type of private school and the affordable tuition to go along with it. We are sad to go but being military we do not have a choice. Also it is accredited to which you really need to be aware of the private schools that are not. I really do not have any suggestions for improvement!
Christian Collegiate is a very good school. My children have been challenged academically. They have had opportunities to grow spiritually, and they have had a wholesome nurturing environment in which to develop their social skills. The staff's credentials are outstanding, and I often marvel that such accomplished educators choose to teach at CCA when they could be making much more in a public setting. I watch some of them volunteer their personal time to cheer on the teams, work the snack bar at games, put on full scale productions, and invest in the students through additional educational opportunities such as technology programs. When my child is stuck on something, his teacher spends extra time working with him. No school can provide every single opportunity possible, but if you are looking for solid academics in an environment where Christians with teacher's hearts will invest in your child, look no further.
We have three children at CCA. This will be their second year attending. The morals and values being taught here can't be bought. They are just taught. This school, like any school, has students that get into trouble, but the way the staff work with the student to prepare them to be better is above and beyond. The academics are exceptional and the teachers are very available for my kids. All 3 are very involved in sports and have excellent coaches with Godly Character. We will miss CCA when we move.
This is my daughter's second and last year at CCA. For the cost, CCA is not worth it. I am not happy with the teachers or what is being taught at CCA. They are not teaching at the same level as other schools. We hired a tutor during the spring break and the learning level was unbelievable. Even the tutor suggested we consider other schools. The teachers seem to just be doing a job. Not really caring about the students. I am extremely disappointed with CCA and can hardly wait for this year to end.
My daughter has gone to CCA since she was in K3 and she's now in the 7th grade. The classes have been small and she's always been able to get the attention needed from her teachers to succeed. The school is now accredited which is awesome! Her teachers have always been great and loving...I do however wish they had more extra-curricular activities once the student becomes middle school/high school, that would be the only negative. My son is in the preschool dept and his teachers are very loving and patient. I have really enjoyed having both of my children in CCA and they have loved their time there and made alot of friends. We will be leaving CCA this year due to military obligations but will be forever grateful for the teachers and staff of CCA for the love and dedication they have given to our whole family!
Both of my children have attended CCA since K3. My son is going into the 8th grade, and my daughter is going into fourth. They both score very well on standardized tests; my son scores "post high school" and my daughter scores 8th grade in many areas. The teachers love my kids and my kids know it. I wouldn't send my kids to school anywhere else. (It costs a lot less than most private schools in the area, by the way!!)
All 3 of my children attend CCA and I have been highly impressed! The morals and values being taught are well worth the money! The academics are exceptional and the teachers are very available for my kids. All 3 are very involved in sports and have excellent coaches with great moral character!
My daughter went to school there, K3- 3rd grade. When we switched her over to public school she was tested to make sure she was 3rd grade level. Her test scores came back 1st grade 6th month. We had to get her tutoring all summer so she could be in her right grade. On her CCA report cards she had all A & B. Apparently they would review the entire test together right before taking it to insure 'good' grades. The grades were there but she didn't retain/learn. What a waste of money!
