CCA is wonderful. Teachers are very personal with each family. Very caring and experienced with their teaching experience. Teacher to student ratio is great. Personal attention to each student. Curriculum is fabulous and beyond public schools in the area. Public school transportation is available and our students have the buses and vans alone, which is great. If you are moving to the area, great homes in South Middleton for sale and bus transportation is available. Only 7 minutes from the school!!! This Christian school is the best in the area!!! You and your child will feel welcomed by all!!

CCA has a very high standard with its curriculum. They currently use Bob Jones for several subjects. K-12 in this facility. Each student gets personal attention from the staff. Each student and family is treated with respect. My children have grown academically, socially and spiritually. I highly recommend this school for those currently living in the area or moving to the area. The children at the school welcome new students with open arms and hearts! Field trips are amazing to chaperone. Basketball is a great sport at this school. I pray that if you are reading this, that you will enroll your children or child at CCA.

CCA is the best Christian school. The teachers are very caring and guide the students spiritually. The rest of the staff cares about the students and parents as well. I would highly recommend CCA to any family looking for a solid Christian education for their child/children.

Simply Outstanding. As a military family, we found the school welcoming and both the educational and spiritual development experiences absolutely first rate. The teachers are dedicated and exceptionally good at challenging young minds, the administration is caring, the spiritual development magnificent, and I could go on and on! Only other thought: if evaluating the school, don't let the older facility concern you. The quality of the teaching is the best we have ever experienced and we are only disappointed that our son cannot complete his next 5 years there due to our upcoming move.

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.
