My kids love it here. Great teachers & staff! My child started kindergarten this year. She is reading so well. My older child is feeling more confident when she takes test because she feels prepared. I amazed at the progress they have made.

This school gets it. Sometimes parents are bias but the acting principal at CCA is amazing. The faculty/staff has changed through the years but the mission has always remained to provide a Christ centered life with regard to education, chapel and sport activities. Students that truly want to be at this school are evidently progressing beyond into college environments. I know that my child will be safe and cared for at all times while at CCA. The best school for the money. I pray that their doors remain open for as long as possible. The student count has been low these last few years. If a parent has the ability to send their child to an affordable private school then I would suggest doing their best to find a school similiarly run with regard to CCA's leadership. It is not perfect but the leadership is amzing!

So grateful to Brother and Mrs. Jacobs and ALL their incredible Christian Staff for the Love they provided my daughters in their Biblical Teachings.. They live what they teach. What we want our children to learn about life, to prepare for life, is being lived out before their eyes on a daily basis. I can't say enough, cannot express my gratitude for the changes that were accomplished in the hearts of my children by attending this Bible School throughout their high school years.

My child previously attended CCA. Its familly oriented. Bro Jacobs, the principal is great as he tries to keep tuition affordable, have fun activities and have a good sports program. However the teachers at the elementary level (Payne, Pierce, and Mrs. Jacobs) are not very good although I guess they mean well. A lot of help is needed as there are no up to date computers, library, etc. The school could really be awesome if parents joined together to help. Bless Bro Jacobs and the school as he's doing as good a job as he can.

My son was maliciously and relentlessly bullied at this school. Even shoved to the floor in the bathroom. No action taken to help or protect him. We pulled him out after they attempted to blame our son for being bullied. Blame the victim? No different than a public school. The principal really let our son down.

This school really cares about the education of all the kids and it handles this by firm, friendly discipline. The principal of the school knows every parent and child by name and addresses everyone by name.

Wonderful teachers and Bro. Scott Jacobs is just great. They go the extra mile. Cathi and Scott have touched my grandson who graduated this year. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Steven loves all of you.

Great school with great leaders and teachers. Scott and Cathi Jacobs have devoted themselves to this school. They have touched more lives through the years than one could imagine. Sports and Academics are a huge priority to the schools success and parents love to be around the school during the evening events throughout the year. There is always something to keep you busy up at CCA. I recommend it to any family that is looking for a great learning environment for the children. Go Cougars!!

The people are very friendly and will work with your child, but they are an average school with flag football, volleyball, boy/girl basketball, baseball and softball.

I was at the point of dropping out of another school in the area until I came to CCA. The staff actually take the time to work with each student on a one to one basis. Brother Jacobs is an amazing man with a heart to show the face of the Lord to each and every student. What a blessing CCA was for my life. Thank You.

This school is cool. I went to a large Lutheran school (ahem) and I didn't have the motivation to even get up and go. The leadership, and quality academics here are outstanding. This is the most fun school ever. I truly enjoy it. Highly recommended. Before you throw your money away at some high priced private school, consider this one. You wont be disappointed.

I am truly blessed to have been able to spend my high school years at CCA. The dedication of the faculty and parents was incredible. I hope you consider visiting CCA and entering the warm atmosphere provided there. God bless!

The level of committment to academic excellence and leadership by example at CCA makes it a great place for my child to attend. I look forward to her graduation and believe she will be prepared to face the world academically and spiritually thanks in no small measure to the preparation she is receiving at CCA. I have been a public school educator for over 20 years - I believe the quality of my daughter's education is outstanding - and that's my educated opinion!

I believe that the christian example shown by the teachers and staff were more than a blessing to our family. They not only taught our children academics, but they also taught them christian values that would remain with them far after they graduated.
