Child safety including: 1. Social = Reasonable presumptions can be made concerning social views of classmates. The school rejects those without proper moral codes of conduct, otherwise I can send my son to any magnet school. 2. Physical = Caring, vigilant adults (staff) who are not overwhelmed or outnumbered to the point of complacency. A male headmaster who is over 6 foot provides the impression that physical issues will be dealt with if needed. Scholastic: Those with the best education obtain the best jobs and by result, can have the best lives and become leaders. The program develops minds with knowledge/skill far superior to most college graduates. I am particularly pleased to see science shown to complement biblical teachings instead of the either/or battle that makes no sense to me. Combining this with the Latin program, I feel my challenge as a parent will be to find a college that can do my child justice once he graduates. (he is only in 6th, but I know he could already pass the entrance exams to the college I attended.) Social Development: I do not know how they do it, but all H.S. students appear satisfied and purposeful.

CCA provides a very safe environment for the students, the curriculum is top-notch, and the teachers truly care about their students. (Obviously, a Christian environment is extremely important to us.) Our son has attended CCA since Pre-K, and is now in 6th grade. He has flourished in every way -- academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and in his spiritual development. He feels safe, cared for, and well-taught at home and at school. What more could we ask for?

We have been so impressed with everything! We love how all things at CCA are sprinkled in love, prayer and the desire to honor the Lord. Our son's teacher is such a blessing, as she has really reached into his heart and brought out some amazing fruit in him as he transitioned to a new environment with new friends and surroundings. We love the family feel to the school, also! I am very impressed and in awe at what our son has come home with as far as curriculum, learning activities, etc... He is sight reading, learning to write his letters, and at 4 years old I think he's already been given such an advantage.

We have been part of the CCA family for 13 years. It is a close community of common beliefs and interests with these impacting the educational process.

My son has been at CCA for 8 years and has been tremendously blessed academically, spiritually and socially. There is truly no other place that he rather be... The school truly cares about the student as a whole and continuously challenges the student to reach his or her highest potential. The teachers partner with parents and the parents partner with teachers to form a great community. I love that the school is very selective in who they enroll as maintaining the culture and reputation of the school is important to all. The greatest component of CCA is that God is placed first in everything. God is truly praised, honored and welcome at CCA and it shows in so many ways. We love CCA and recommend all to explore this great school.

This is our 3rd year at CCA. Our daughter loves the environment, and we love both the Christian environment and the academic rigor of the school. The teachers do a great job of challenging the students, regardless of what level they may be performing. We feel blessed to have found CCA.

We moved to the school this year with high expectations. We were a little worried that with such high expectations the school would not be able to live up to our expectations. After a couple of months, I can say that CCA has not only met our high expectations but has actually exceeded them. We are blown away by the teachers, staff, school communication, students and overall environment of CCA.

Three of our children have graduated from CCA and our youngest will graduate in 2016. Each began at CCA in Pre-kindergarten. Our children have been enrolled at CCA for each of the past 28 years. CCA has been an incredible blessing to our family. Two of our children had learning differences and succeeded. All of our children have received classical educations and have been grounded in truth, goodness and beauty. Our oldest son is now an Air Force JAG Officer, recently returned from deployment in Afghanistan. CCA prepared him well for an undergrad degree in political philosophy and for Law School. One of our most academically challenged children graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in Photography. She received the highest art scholarship awarded by SCAD. CCA was instrumental in helping her discover her giftedness. Our youngest daughter is studying abroad in Japan in her 3rd year at Calvin College. She received the highest merit scholarship awarded by Calvin College. We would highly recommend CCA to any like-minded family who wishes to invest in their children.

I just decided to remove my son from CCA after many years and put him in another school. The staff is terrible with the exception of a few teachers. The school has no care for underperforming students and instead of helping them, they remove them from the school. When my son needed academic help, he got nothing except from teachers he knew very well. All in all,I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone ever.

We attended CCA for 1 yr only, we had to move due to a job transfer. Boy do we miss CCA. We move to an area where the schools are suppose to be exceptional. The academics are good but the everyday how to treat each other is horrible. Bulling, the way kids talk to each other, no respect,even some of the teachers are disrespectful. CCA had respect, didn't know of any bulling,built character in each child, teachers were loving, listen to the students and parents. The Christianity was good not too much but enough to make you think how life is so precious and to be kind to others.I do agree background checks on all staff, this day and age it needs to be done everywhere.if we ever move back , we're definitely going back to CCA...

We have been at CCA for 6 years and it has been a great experience for our family. I have had my kids as young as 1 first grade and now my oldest will be in11 th grade. We had a sudden loss of my husband, kids father, after our first year at CCA and we overwhelmed by the outpouring of support that ministered to our physical, spiritual and emotional needs. It has been a much more than a school to us but have dear friends at CCA. Academically my kids thrive and are excelling at high level on the standardize tests which speaks to the education at CCA. We particularly like the classical model of education with the Biblical world view. I highly recommend the school.

I recommend CCA - quality teachers, challenging curriculum, opportunity to participate in sports and other activities, & the chance to examine their beliefs & Christian world views. All 4 of my children have or are attending. The oldest transferred in 10th grade. It was time for a change after frustrating # of yrs with some teachers in the public school allowed to be mediocre w/ no expectations for improvement or ramifications for poor performance. He was able to participate in sports and welcomed into CCA family by students & teachers alike. Because of the positive experience, we decided to move our other 3 children. It required financial sacrifices to make it happen, but well worth the investment. Our children have participated in varsity sports, choir, art as well as student organizations & functions where they could grow and develop. Lastly, CCA has given my children a chance to look at world views & see them from a Biblical perspective - another way CCA prepares students for the next steps after graduation.

We couldn't be more pleased with our experience at CCA. Strong academics, caring teachers, administrators that take time to know each and every child, motivating coaches sports, and a wonderfully supportive family community. It is truly a gem, and the decision to enroll my child in CCA has been one of my prouder parenting moments.

Covenant Christian Academy is a wonderful school. The administrators, teachers and coaches are awesome. We have 3 children enrolled and all 3 have excelled at CCA. We can't see them going anywhere else. We highly recommend CCA for their curriculum and caring environment.

I am a part-time teacher there and love it. It is the real deal. Even when "no one is looking" the teachers are professional and caring about the students, families and each other. Expectations are high but rules are applied fairly. Don't expect a "free pass" on behavior. Academic standards are high but there is some help available. The school truly sees education as a partnership with parents.

I totally agree with the fact that the academics are superior. However, there are a few things that weren't mentioned that is worth thinking about.. First of all, they do not have playground equipment nor a chapel at all. This should be a given but isn't. Secondly, the staff is extremely nice, however, they are also very judgemental from the get go. Instead of focusing on background checks for their teachers/staff they also background check the PARENTS. Some of the most now devoted christians I have ever met with the best testimonies came from a sorted past. Sex offender checks for the parents I can understand but with the amount of money they get for tuition they don't have the right to be prying into people's personal lives and prejudging. The Lord himself says "judge not, lest ye be judged". They are what gives christianity a bad name.

We have had our children at CCA for a year now. It has been a wonderful experience. We definitely hope to keep them at CCA for their entire school career. It is truly a Chrisitan environment plus they are learning a lot. Their teacher is sweet and loving and tells all of the students that she loves them (they are still in pre-K). We definitely recommend CCA.

Excellent environment for the students - very caring faculty, challenging curriculum and family atmosphere. Sports programs as well are very good considering the size of the school. If you're looking for a school with a nurturing environment where your kids will feel 'at home', CCA is the place.

This is a private, Christian-based college prep environment with a great student-to-teacher ratio. We have 2 kids in school there - one in kindergarten and one in 3rd grade. Both enjoy a full reading, science, math, phys-ed and language arts curriculum as well as Wednesday chapel. Tuition is a value relative to competing schools in the area.

CCA is a wonderful educational community. The class sizes are small, so the children recieve all the individual attention they need. There are many extra classes, such as foreign language- even for the kindergartners. The parents are very involved and the Christian spirit is very evident.

This is an excellent classical Christian college prep school. It was 25 years old in 2004. The students SATs are the highest in private and public schools in the Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake area. The students can graduate with over 15 hours of college credit. They won state in 2AA boys basketball and have gone to the playoffs in 2AA Football. Current enrollment when I checked was 425 students about 35 per class. The boys and girls are separated in almost all their classes in 7th and 8th grade and go back to coed in 9th-12th. They have a mentoring program for the students. The students are required to do community service hours. The students wear uniforms. Several of the teachers have graduate degrees. We were impressed. They are in the planning stage of a new Elementary Bldg. Great buy for your money.

Our experience at this school has been awesome! Our child came to CCA from another private school. We were attracted to the classic Christian curriculum and the quality of the teachers. In addition to the regular course curriculum, my child competed in Math Olympics, studied Greek mythology, and for an end of year science project, they watched chickens hatch and raised them for six weeks. What was most satisfying was to see visible proof of the schools effect on my child. The scholastic achievement test results showed an increase of 8% from their last test. This year my child has started studying Latin. The teachers, administrators, and parents are fantastic.

We had a [student] at CCA and we were very disappointed! They say that they are committed to excellence, yet our experience was mediocre at best. It was not challenging in reading or math. We asked for extra reading, and got nothing. The teacher was satisfied to have 'half of the students in the class' challenged in math. The teacher gave spelling tests and mispronounced words. When this caused the students to misspell the words, the teacher let the mistake stand. Her rationale was that 'no one was perfect'. When the children studied Africa, instead of true African music, they listened to 'The Lion King' soundtrack! When we tried to talk to the teacher and administrators about our concerns, we were brushed off. I would not recommend this school to anyone seeking an academically superior education!
