Christian Collegiate Academy 3

I read several reviews talking about the small class size. Frankly, that just isn't true. For example, this year, the one kindergarten class that they have had 25 students and the one first grade class that they have began with 26 students. To be paying the third highest tuition on the coast, those classes are WAY too large. Several friends with children in public school have told me that their classrooms are smaller and there are several classes so more choice is involved. We are considering public school next year. The Christian values and faith that are taught are top notch at this school. However, there are leadership issues and overcrowding issues. Some of the teachers in the elementary grades (remember, only one class per grade) probably shouldn't be teaching. With that being said, I can also say that there are a couple AMAZING teachers there. The lunches are very good - better in my opinion than the local public school districts. We are considering attending another school next year. We always take our attendance at CCA on a year-by-year basis.

I did like the small class size, the spiritual foundation and the teacher, however, The curriculum did not challenge my child. I would not send my child back to this school, nor,would I recommend this school if you are looking for a good education.

There was definitely not enough home work given to students. And then, they wanted not age appropriate all school assignments

I believe they offer a good christian foundation for the students, but, the education is lacking.

My kids love going to CCA. I have K-5 and high school ages. Teachers are well educated and the smaller classrooms (15-20 students) means my kids are getting more one on one time in the subjects they struggle in. Great communication with the teachers and staff. They do everything in their power to see that the children succeed and are prepared for the future. This is the place to take your kids on the coast. They are fully accredited.

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.
