I went to Christ Chapel Academy for 13 years and I'm a proud class of 2014 graduate. They took care of me all of my years from kindergarten all the way up to 12 grade. The teachers are really good and care about you and your grades. There is also a lot the school does to build up your faith such as Chapel and various student organizations. The athletic program is very good where both the cross-country and varsity basketball teams went to the state championship.
I attended Christ Chapel Academy for 13 years and am proud to say I graduated from there. It has its pros and cons just like any school, but the teachers that truly care about you and are invested in your life, the chapels that allow you to go deeper spiritually, and the variety of students of all ages that become friends because of the small environment all make CCA worthwhile. I wouldn't trade the education and experiences I had at Christ Chapel for anything -- Proud Class of 2014 graduate
CCA has been our school for the past 5 years. I have one student in middle school and one in high school. This school strives to meet every aspect a school should. Their desire is to bring current technology to the classroom while teaching the students the subject matter. Spiritual growth is a constant presence that is taught every day. The teachers at this school are amazing and we are blessed to be here.
Christ Chapel Academy is not perfect but they are an Academy that places a high value on education and spiritual development. I have two daughter's attending CCA and they are cared for, protected, and taught with mindful instruction. Been at CCA for three years.
Christ Chapel Academy has provided my three children with a quality Christian education the past four years at the middle school an high school level. I appreciate the fact that they offer honor courses that challenge my children, technology courses, a drama program and an athletic program to provide my children with plenty of extracurricular activities. The teachers and administrators offer excellent support and guidance for my children academically as well as spiritually.
I am currently a senior here at Christ Chapel Academy. I have been a student here since the 9th grade. My favorite aspect of this school is the teachers; the teachers truly care about their students and want them to succeed. I have known teachers to postpone tests if they knew that the class was struggling, and to take time out of their busy schedules to help a student in need. One morning, I was feeling very overwhelmed; seeing that, one of my favorite teachers, Mr. Harrell, chased me down the hallway just to pray with me. I immediately felt a sense of peace that lasted for quite a while. The administrators are known for this as well. The quality of education here is outstanding; the high school teachers try to prepare students for college as best they can. Mrs. Nuckols and Mrs. Andujar instill very important skills such as critical reading, thinking, and analysis that will carry students throughout the rest of their lives. Overall, I would say that this is a great school in which to enroll your child. Although the size of the school may be a bit limiting, it helps create a familial atmosphere and allows teachers to get to know their students on a personal level.
My son has been attending Christ Chapel Academy since 2010. We love his teachers, and enjoy the fact that the leadership uses Christ centered curriculum. The school places a high emphasis on security and safety for all students and staff members. We appreciate the fact that the school is ethnically diverse.
I am a graduate of Christ Chapel Academy, and it is my privilege to write an honest review of my experience as a student. There are so many things that set Christ Chapel apart from other local schools. The teachers truly care for each individual student in a way that extends far beyond the academic field- they care for the individual as a person. They are willing to give personal time outside of the classroom to help you understand the material. The administration provides a safe, Christ-centered environment that encourages you to grow; CCA has provided me with opportunities to grow in my character, faith, and leadership in a way that no other school has. CCA fully prepared me to excel in college, as well as excel in life. I am extremely grateful for all that Christ Chapel has done for me. I can personally guarantee that sending your child to Christ Chapel Academy will be one of the greatest investments you make into their life.
This is an excellent school, my daughter has attended CCA since she was 3 years old. The teachers are great and the quality of education is far beyond public school.
This private school operations is below standards. The Administration is disorganized and very nonresponsive. Teachers do not conduct asssessment of the student skills or provide consistent feedback to parents. Grades are always entered late in the homework/grading system. It's difficult for parents to track their child's progress. If your child is struggling in any subject area, this is not the school for him/her. Their expectations for students are high but the teachers at the secondary lack the skills/technicques to reach the students.
Would not recommend . The Elementary part is solid , but the upper level part is below standards . There is no system of accountablity to measure student progress, and I seriously doubt the academic rigors of this instiution. I decided to switch my child back to a public school, and her teachers have indicated that she's below grade level. She was an "A" student for her three high school years at CCA
My child attended CCA for about a year. In that time, I learned that CCA does a great job positioning itself, and selling you exactly what you want to hear. Once you enroll your child, you quickly see the cracks in the system. Now, it s true that every school will have issues, and as a parent, you hope that you can partner with the school to make positive changes. Unfortunately, that was not my experience. Poor management of the pre-school and middle school; Bullying; Unmotivated teachers; teachers are unresponsive to genuine parental complaints; the teachers aren t equipped to practice differentiated learning. A teacher informed me that my son was too advanced and often bored in the class, but she had other kids who were so far behind that she couldn t dedicated the necessary time to challenge my son. The teacher was being honest but receiving no support. I also found out that the assistant teacher who was supposed to be hired to help the talented kids was never hired. Eight months in and nothing! When someone tells you that a school is good/great, ask them, compared to what?
Very dissatisfied with my sons kindergarten teacher! She was rude and yelled at the students. I have walked in unexpected to he and witnessed this myself along with my son telling me. She is also very uneducated and cannot SPELL! I have had to correct her on papers sent home several times. She would also mark correct answers wrong on my sons papers. Luckily would check his work daily. Kindergarten was a horrible experience there for him.
This will be my daughter's 4th year in elementary and my son's 1st year in high school at CCA. I have been very pleased with the curriculum and believe my daughter has learned alot about God and Christian behaviour. There is bullying in every school and while administration does have some part in dealing with it, it is ultimately the parents of a child who need to rectify it. The staff can be a flustered and come off as rude sometimes, but we all do when we are bogged down and overwhelmed. This may be a Christian school but if parents come in with an un-christian like attitude, then it is only fair to expect a somewhat lackluster response from the staff/teachers. Every situation is different and there may be circumstances for some, that were out of line by staff or teachers, but overall, it is a parents duty to keep your children from being unruly, bullying or being insubordinate.
i feel that the school raises the prices to much and if they call themselvs a christian school why is that they shwo favoritism. The school also focuses on getting more money from the kids than educating them. the school has about a handful of good teachers. Some of the stafff would treat the students unfairly based offf how much they liked them.
I have a child in Christ Chapel and have found it to be a very good school. I have spoken and had interaction with both the elementary and secondary principals and find them to be both articulate and intelligent. I have never been disappointed in bring my family to event involving the school. I even attended the graduation this year and was very pleased with the level of the event. I hope that people who look to these reviews do not go by what has been written here but will come and tour and experience Christ Chapel for themselves. I am very, very happy with the school.
We would not recommend this school to anyone. We do not believe that it is an "academy;" rather, it is a disorganized, poorly-managed, average school. It is not worth the rising tuition costs. My children went there for several years, and it had gotten progressively worse. It was embarrassing to bring family and friends to events and/or to talk with administration and staff (other than teachers). My college-educated family members were not very impressed... There are some good teachers, even a few great ones, but the administration (both for lower and upper grades) is very lacking. They are prideful and not very intelligent or articulate. There are too many chiefs and not enough indians. Also, our experience was that policies and discipline are not consistent. Prayers won't help an administration that is not focused on offering a solid, Godly, Christian education to our children.
I have read many of the recently written reviews by individuals who had a bad experience but I would like to differ with what is being said. I find that the teachers have all spent their summer working to enhance their educational experiences that they can share with their students, from Kindergarten to 12th grade. The administration follows what is written in the hand book but does look at major issues on an individual basis, as I would hope that they do. It seems that there are some people with issues that need prayer as all of these reviews have been written in the last two weeks. I would recommend Christ Chapel to anyone!
AS a former student, graduate, and employee I would only like to say that I AM EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH WHAT THIS SCHOOL HAS BECOME!!! I have been with this school/church since I was born and I feel like the administration is in all honesty (Insert random swear word) LACKING!!!!! Not the teachers but the other workers such as the office staff, kitchen crew, and janitorial services arent GETTING THE PAY THEY DESERVE OR THE (Insert random swear word) RESPECT THEY RIGHTFULLY DESERVE FOR DOING THE WORK THEY DO!. They clean up messes that aren't they're own and aren't thanked for a dang thing. And the some not all of the teachers prefer to ignore the questions that the students have because the questions are apparently WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY to difficult for them to manage.
My child has attended 3 different Christian Schools and has been at CCA for several years now. Compared to the 2 other schools we attended, CCA is excellent in facilities, and offers students much more than the traditional reading, writing, and arithmetic. Because of the education provided, my child is prepared for college, he has received a well rounded education including the opportunity to participate in H.S. sports and other extra curriculum activities.
