I cannot say enough good things about this school! We absolutely love it. I think what sets this school apart from others is how much the teachers, principal and staff truly care. My son has learned more in his few months at CCA than he learned in 2 years at other schools. In addition to a great curriculum for learning, I also love the focus on character and being a good person. If you are considering the school I would highly recommend calling and getting a tour. We will be sending our 2nd child to this school starting next year as well.

This is our first year as a CCA family. My husband and I made the decision to place our 4 year old twins in K4 and move our other 3 children to CCA from public school and it has been one of the best decisions we have made! In only the few short months we have been there, I have seen my children grow academically, spiritually, and socially. The teachers, principal, and staff are amazing! The middle school math teacher volunteered to take time out of her summer to tutor my middle school children to assure they would have the smoothest transition possible. The love and dedication they show to each and every child at CCA is overwhelming! The other CCA families have gone above and beyond to make us feel welcome. CCA truely has been one of Gods greatest gifts to our family!

Christian Chapel Academy offers a tremendous environment in which the best is drawn out of each and every student. Our daughter was struggling in the public school system and began attending CCA for the first time this year and now she is really tapping into her potential. She truly loves going to school and is somewhat disheartened on the weekends because there is no school. From the very first time my wife visited the school last year, she could tell it was a nurturing environment and that it was going to be the very best place for our daughter. Then my daughter even got the chance to sit in one day last year to see what she thought and she was hooked immediately. It is the kind of school that you can feel the difference that quick, and we have not been let down since. I highly recommend CCA for anyone who is looking for excellence in education in a loving environment that will bring out the best in their child.

I have just begun the school year with my child at Christian Chapel Academy. It's been a wonderful experience. This school has been a blessing. It is great to know that my child is in a welcoming Christian environment. Class structure is excellent and my child is excited about learning. I always enjoy hearing about chapel and what praise song was the favorite!

We have 5 children that have attended CCA. CCA is an excellent school because of the caring staff, the God loving faculty, and the wonderful families that bond together. CCA has given all of our children a strong foundation and a bright future.

We were looking for a smaller school where our family could know the other families and be known and we found it in CCA. Daily I am impressed and excited about what my children are learning and the other students and teachers they spend the day with.

My daughter attended the pre-school program available at CCA. I believe her ability to excel socially and academically during that year is in tribute to the exceptional teaching and Christ-centered curriculum that was offered. She woke up each morning excited and ready to see her teacher and friends. As a parent I could not have asked for a more successful and productive academic year - for a pre-schooler at that! :) I was so thrilled that I enrolled her for K5 and am once again impressed with CCA's academic offerings... from top rate teachers to small class sizes to the advanced studies in phonics, reading, and math that the kindergartners are exposed to... It's been a wonderful ride this far and I look forward to my daughter attending through her 8th grade year and my son to start in 4years!

We have had children at CCA for 8 years. It is academically challenging and spiritually enriching. Our kids look forward to going to school each day knowing they will be challenged but also knowing the teachers care about them and will help them meet the challenge with success. We look forward to many more years at CCA.

Our family has been involved with CCA for 8 years. We have a graduate of CCA and two currently attending. We have had an excellent experience. The challenging academics and christian based learning attracted us to CCA, but the caring atmosphere has kept us there. The teachers are compassionate and demonstrate the love of God. Our kids love attending CCA. It's like family. I can't imagine sending our kids anywhere else.

Our experience has been amazing!!! We have been there 10 years and I would not trade the blessing this school has been on my children and my family for anything. The teachers are loving and compassionate and give appropriate discipline and direction as well. The academics are challenging. The fact that my children can go to school and hear the word of God and see their teachers show them the love of God has been irreplaceable.

I am a grandparent of two children who attended CCA. I have the greatest respect for the school program and the staff. They became our extended family. The whole experience has truly been a blessing for all of us. What a wonderful opportunity CCA provided for the children to get an outstanding education and be a part of a true spiritual environment.


Posted October 23, 2011

We have two children at CCA. The teachers have all been exceptional and truly care for the kids. The academic environment at CCA is challenging and the spiritual aspect supports everything we teach at home. I would highly recommend CCA to anyone considering a Christian School in our town.

Excellent value for cost. Children are well prepared to enter accelarated programs when transferring. Experienced caring and compassionate instructors/staff.

Terrific school. Teachers love the kids. Academic focus, not simply daycare. Work through a curriculum; they have a plan regarding where they are going with a student. Good staff tenure. Ability to continue the great start beyond pre-school because they go all the way through 8th grade.

All three of our kids have had a wonderful experience at CCA. The administration and staff are very loving and provide excellent instruction. Such a great place....I can't say enough. I do wish there were more extracurricular activities, but in light of all things eternal...what they get during the day is is more than I could ask for!

Wonderful school. My daughter is ready to graduate from 8th grade after being here since 2nd. Great staff - wouldn't have sent her anywhere else. Great friends. Excellent education. Godly environment. Worth every penny for the experience she & we had, even as parents. Limited extracurriculars - but they stay focused on what they do best - and there is plenty to do in the community so it is not missed at the school. Might be a concern except that it only goes to 8th grade and most schools are limited till this grade, in terms of extracurriculars.

Our son attended CCA from pre-school through 8th grade. It is hard to imagine that he could have received as excellent a foundation anywhere else. The positives included: small class size, a loving environment, academic excellence, strong parental involvement, Godly Christian roles, structured yet joyful environment, extracurricular activities (girls volleyball, boys basketball, band), strong, qualified leadership, good facilities. We continue to be amazed at how much of God's Word our son has 'hidden in his heart' because of his foundation at CCA. For this, we are eternally grateful.
